Completing their 8th Inspirado challenge last night, and doing what no other team has ever done in Inspirado history, Brick has finally arrived at the OH SHIT! challenge! The OH SHIT! challenge is the most coveted piece of the Inspirado challenge board, it is the ultimate challenge, and Thursday Sept. 15th, Brick will meet their match. It wasn’t easy winning their 8th match, in fact Double Date put up a great fight right from the beginning. Double Date team captain, Ross Taylor, poked fun at Jamaal Sedayo, saying “he couldn’t improv his way out of a bag,” then Brick team captain Julia Hynes poked fun at Double Date saying, “sorry you’re show on NBC got cancelled…”, trashy trash talking, but it inspired some magical improv!
Double Date chose a stylistic challenge and received Disney Princess; they had to do a piece in the style of a Disney princess movie. What unraveled was a story of two princesses, one was “basically a 6”, and the other, Princess Alexandra, was horribly ugly with blood and puss raining from her face. The King’s Ball began at 7pm, and the Duke was looking for a princess. The horribly ugly sister called upon her tree stump helper to assist her in getting ready. He built her an outfit made of leaves and weeds. The ball was filled with dancing, elderly dukes and enchantment. In the end, the stump would turn into a prince, and the unsightly Duke would fall in love with a bird. The piece was completed with a song and dance, which made the entire audience nostalgic for a “whole new world” for Princess Alexandra and the Tree Stump Prince.
OH SHIT! Brick came to the Inspirado with an air of confidence. “There is only one challenge we can choose!” The random challenge was Brick’s penultimate challenge. They received Murder Mystery; they needed to complete a murder mystery, they were all given roles (any of them could be the murderer). The piece opened with Prince Hussein, Miss Violet and Lord Trenton having tea in Trenton Manor, when suddenly Miss Violet died of poison. Immediately Detective Winston was on the case. Very quickly, the town drunk Alistair Frock entered, followed by socialite Sigourney Cromwell and film star Finnis Cooper. Everyone seemed guilty of poisoning Miss Violet, but the tip would come in the study with Prince Hussein and Detective Winston. The Detective said, “I’ll name books and you say if you’ve read them…War & Peace…How to Poison a Person”, in which Hussein said, yes, I have- oh I thought you said, “How to…be Boys 2 Men. I have read that many times”. The climax of the murder mystery would come in the living room, when Detective Winston was making his accusation. It was unclear who the murderer was, until he tried to escape! Prince Hussein, Miss Violet’s lover, was captured and brought to prison. Case closed. OH SHIT!
It happened. Brick won. BRICK. This means that next week, Thursday September 15th, will be the OH SHIT! challenge. The last time we talked about the OH SHIT! challenge, Hurricane Irene happened. In Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Keanu Reeves says, “Oh Shit!”, anticipating the day that Brick would step onto the Inspirado stage and accept this challenge. Will The Kicks be able to stop Brick during their 9th week? Is the OH SHIT! challenge legal/ safe/ fire proof (we’re checking with Armando). THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, AT 11PM, BRICK DOES OH SHIT!. GET THERE EARLY! YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS THIS.
