On the eve of a historic movie premier, Aquarius managed to make a little bit of history themselves, by knocking off the 5 time Inspirado Champions, Northcoast!  The trash talk was fierce, Aquarius team captain, Oscar Montoya threw down against NORTHCOAST team captain, Oscar Montoya.  Insults were thrown and Oscar Montoya decided to have Northcoast go second!  Here we go!

Aquarius chose a stylistic challenge and received “Actually”.  Their challenge was to actually perform the Dark Knight Rises.  At the top of the show we were given an intro from tired workers from Wayne Enterprises, Catwoman, Batman and Mitt Romney.   Batman was trying to stop fighting and killing and Mitt Romney, who worked for Bane, was trying to get “The Bat Man” on his campaign trail.  By the end of the set, Romney, his wife Ann and Catwoman had discovered so much about themselves and their story.  Thank you Batman for Rising once again.

Northcoast went second and chose an Indianapolis challenge and received “Population Famous”.  David Letterman, Larry Bird, James Harris and Jane Pauley are all famous people from Indianapolis, during Northcoast’s set, these were the only characters that could exist.  We were taken to the Letterman show, where after building a time machine, Dave welcomed James Harris to his set.  We saw a Jane Pauley meeting, with all of the Jane Pauley’s in the world, Larry Bird got real and James Harris dealt with his childish kid.  Indianapolis is a state where some pretty talented and crazy people were created.

Aquarius!  The musical megawatt team plans to come back even fiercer next week as they take on That Annoying Couple!  Can they continue this momentum?  How annoying is That Annoying Couple?  You decide.  Next thursday at 11pm- INSPIRADDDOOOOOO!!!!


January 12th RECAP: O, WHAT THOU DAREST TO DO! FNS Gets One Step Closer to OH SH*T!

Our First Double Sponsored Show!

All the world’s a stage at Inspirado!  The night was filled with The Bard, sponsors and Super Bowl highlights.  The show started off with Featherweight– the first team to ever perform in Inspirado- presenting their new non-corporate sponsor, “Ye Olde Mom  And Pop, The One Stop, Shopping Clocks And Frocks, For Mom and Pops”.  Friday Night Sh*w was sponsored, as usual, by Duane Reade.  FNS decided to go second, so Featherweight and their ( long winded) non-corporate sponsor took the stage!

BOOM! Featherweight chose the Indianapolis challenge (the least picked challenge) and received Super Bowl.  In just a few weeks, the 46th annual Super Bowl will be held in Indianapolis, IN, and two teams will face off.  The challenge was to perform a mono-scene in the locker room of the losing team at half-time.  They were currently down by 56 points.  Immediately, we were given the delusional but hopeful players of the Pennsylvania Bulldogs.   They wouldn’t let the custodian Brian take their “winning” t-shirts and champagne.  BOOM!  The coach was too busy enjoying the U2 half-time show, proclaiming, “you should get out there, they’re great!”.  Their plan was to pull a “Huck Finn” in order to win super bowl rings; “seriously, we’re not going to steal them…we were…but now we want to win them.”  In the end, they threw up a hail marry… and only lost by 49 points- well done Bulldogs. BOOM!

The 5 time Inspirado champions, The Friday Night Sh*w, took the stage next and chose a Stylistic challenge.  Their challenge was called The Bard; they had to perform an early lost work from William Shakespeare.  We were given the story of an unruly king, who loves to kill messengers.  The king was married to a brute Queen, who loved to speak in sexual verse.  In his kingdom, lived a wench and a popper who were madly in love, “oh to be the pant that wraps around this leg!”  Eventually, the wench was sent to war  and when the pauper learned of this, he got in her suit of armor and went away with her.  In the end, they both die- as well as the king, and the queen…the only one left standing was the messenger proclaiming, “oh, I should really tell someone about this”.

FNS hath claimed another victory!  Can it be true!  They are now 6 time Inspirado champions…does this mean they will go all the way?  If they complete two more challenges, they will indeed be in line for the infamous Oh Sh*t! challenge.  But they have two more teams to get through first.  Next week, the new Megawatt team Leviathan stands up against the powerhouse FNS.  Will Leviathan knock down the current champions or will Leviathan be run over by a team with more momentum than Mitt Romney.  You be the judge.  Next week at 11pm.  INSPIRADOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
