Bryan and his Blewt pals resurrected Don't Spit the Water for two Just For Laughs festival shows at the Playground Theater, and I was front and center dutifully manning my camera. Yes, that meant my feet got spit on several times. Ew! Some of our friends who have split for LA and New York came back to reprise some of their best (most ridiculous) characters, and the night was SO FUN. These are my favorite pics from the 8:00 show.
A contestant tries to resist the comedic powers of Choco Loco (aka T.J. Miller, in from LA):
The absurd and pathetic-but-endearing Chicago Sashay Dancers:
Sasha and the Noob (Steve Gadlin and Paul Luikart) try out their razor sharp knock-knock jokes:
Ken Barnard, as Krystle Strawbury, tries to charm a contestant into spitting:
...then he takes a more aggressive approach as Krystle turns into a mermaid:
Potty-mouthed cowboy Scot Goodheart (with Bryan keeping time in the background) whips out some power ballads to coax some soggy chuckles:
Bryan Bowden, as Timekeeper Willis, explains that one of that night's prizes is an autographed picture of himself, which he thinks is the greatest thing ever:
The end: darn you, Mr. Pickles!
