I was ten the first time I heard the classic Cheech and Chong bit “Dave’s Not Here” on a record owned by the stoner older sister of my best friend. At the time, my child mind could not grok why this somewhat tedious riff was funny at all in any way. Now that I’m older and more experienced, I totally get why “Dave’s Not Here” is pure comedy gold, and possibly the most brilliant piece of stoner comedy every created. Just being serious.
Are you a fan of the FX series, What We Do In The Shadows? I sure am. This hilarious show is finally returning for its much-anticipated third season as of this coming Thursday, September 2nd, which I was reminded of by this electronic Bus Shelter Ad that I enjoyed sharing with my friends and fiends on Instagram earlier this week!
Very coincidently, while setting my DVR to record the series, I noticed not only that they will drop two episodes on Thursday, but also that the third episode, airing on September 9th is entitled, Gail! Wow, I love it to death.

Do you like drinking? I sure do. If you enjoy drinking and you also like going to the theater, maybe you have wished that there was a play where the actors brought cocktails right to your seat for you to enjoy during the show. That would be insane, right? What a great idea! Well, what if I told you that this is not just a beautiful, utopian dream, but that it is already happening right now? Yes, it is true, and this magical event happens at New World Stages in midtown. The show is called The Imbible: a Spirited History of Drinking, and the cherry on the cake is that it all takes place in a bar!
It’s funny to think that so many adults have never known a life where NBC’s late night comedy sketch program, Saturday Night Live did not exist, but it’s not so weird considering the show is currently celebrating its 40th year on the air. If you’re even a casual fan of the show and you live anywhere near NYC, you should make a point to see Saturday Night Live: The Exhibition, an independent and ridiculously comprehensive showcase collecting sets, props, photos, costumes, film clips and every type of random ephemera covering the show’s history, from the original Not Ready for Prime Time Players up to today.
