1. The Tale of Horseface McGillicutty
Eric Landuyt & Kim Townsend

The story was hard to follow, but the delivery was awesome.

2. Cognitive Garbage by Leigh
Mather

I liked it.

3. I've Always Hated You by Nick Beatty

This was alot of fun to do. The different reactions of the audience was my favorite part.

4. Chippy the Chipmunk: The Star by Alyssa Sarchet Bowman (age 8)

This is what stories about forest creatures should be.

5. What a Hare-y Situation: or A Play Without Real Words by Eli Wilkinson

I really wanted to see what Eil was doing. But I was to busy failing at acting dead.

6. The John by Armed and Hammered

This was funny, but shouldn't it have been a point five?

7. The Break Room by Brian Lenth

washed away by 32 cubic yards of coffee... Hi-larious!

8. Facebook Stalker by Caitlin Hurban

Very catchy! I was kind of hoping for you to belt it out towards the end.

9. If you are Without Chicken by Jesus Sushifish

I asked my roommate what he would do if he was without chicken. Then he said he WAS without chicken... I had no clue what to say.

10. Cebolla Mundial by David Rout

I like how it started. Then..

This... dragged...a bit...

10.5. Can I mate with you? by Eric Jesteadt

No, no you can't.

11. I'm on it by Jamal Rivers

Loved it. It's been in my head all day.

12. Ray Dawn Chong in Paradise by, Long Dong Chong

don't remember how it ended..

13. John Bates' Improv piece

John never ceases to amaze me with his near limitness knowldge of things.

14. Song- Ambivilance, Midnight Phone call or Apothecary?, Mirri Doesn't know yet.

I had trouble making out the lyrics.

15. As Dumb as they Tell Us to Be 2.0 by Todd Ristau and YOU

I had fun with it.

16. Tears of a Clown, Oh and Blood, lots and lots of Blood. By Luke Christensen

Luke, sometimes you scare me. But Clowns are always fun! And So are bunnies that eat fingers!

Oh noes!
She didn't appear to be a bunny did she? I was going for small lost child!

a couple of Highlights:
Eric Landuyt's super-delayed knee slap, "3rd degree case of astonishment," The classiness of Facebook Stalker, The sweetness of the blood, "flamboyant"

It was a bad night for me to actually concentrate on anything that wasn't silly and to the point as I'd had a long day. I feel like I missed out on these other things.

I also feel like a lot of the comical pieces were in need of a punchline, or a bigger one. Some "oomph"

1) The Tale of Horseface McGillicutty:

2) Cognitive Garbage--good, but it felt like a song without music, and I wanted to hear it in song form.

3) I've always hated you--this piece was close to greatness--possible Best Of nomination--but is in need of tightening and revising--the slams have to start normal, build, and get more and more outrageous, and I think you can cut a third out of it.

4) Chippy the Chipmunk--very enjoyable.

5) What a Hare-y Situation--BEST OF! BEST OF! BEST OF!

6) The John--this WAS a point five--I'm not sure how that got lost.

7) The Break Room--well done. it was hard to top the coffee. Maybe the sex with the wife should come first.

8) Facebook Stalker--fun song.

9) If You Are Without Chicken--I think the punchline worked.

10) Cebolla Mundial--again, glad David is carrying on the serious flame for NoShame, but I definitely felt myself tuning out.

10.5) A good point five.

11) I'm On It--another very good song. The bongos worked well.

12) RaE Dawn Chong in Paradise--I would've cut the self-referential line at the beginning. A good piece, but I think it still needed that "third thing."

13) John Bates--the question, of course, is whether to select one of John Bates' scripted pieces of BestOf, or whether to cut him loose on improv. This was, again, brilliant.

14) Mirri's song--worked well.

15) As Dumb as… I gotta admit I was dubious of the whole "mad lib an archived piece," but this worked surprisingly well, particularly with the unfilled-in adjective at the end. Very well performed by Nick.

16) Tears of a Clown--another BestOf Nom. Absolutely brilliant.

1) Tale of Horseface McGillicutty: quite enjoyable.

1. The Tale of Horseface McGillicutty by Eric Landuyt & Kim Townsend
I had rehearsed a very goofy voice which had Kim and me doubled over while writing it, but then it didn't come out during the performance, so I feel like this could have been better.

2. Cognitive Garbage by Leigh Mather
Leigh has been doing good stuff lately, and I hope she does more.

3. I've Always Hated You by Nick Beatty
This was wonderful. I loved the deadpan outrageousness. So many great lines.

4. Chippy the Chipmunk: The Star by Alyssa Sarchet Bowman (age 8)
This may just be me, but children's stories (written for and/or by children) often make me sad. This one did just that, even though it was pretty cute at times.

5. What a Hare-y Situation: or A Play Without Real Words by Eli Wilkinson
Oh, Masturbating Bunny, what would No Shame be without you?

6. The John by Armed and Hammered
This one was okay. I hate to say just "okay", but that's really all I felt.

7. The Break Room by Brian Lenth
Brian's delivery was great, and I liked the increasingly outlandish things that happened. Well done.

8. Facebook Stalker by Caitlin Hurban
I commend Caitlin not only for daring to sing but also for daring to sing acapella. This song was different that most of the music we get at No Shame, and I liked it.

9. If you are Without Chicken by Jesus Sushifish
Oh, how wonderfully absurd. "Would you know I was without chicken" is such a great line that I don't feel envious of the writer because I can't imagine myself coming up with a line like that.

10. Cebolla Mundial by David Rout
David's monologues have good moments, but those moments get bogged down by excessive filler. Trim the fat and there will be more good moments.

10.5. Can I mate with you? by Eric Jesteadt
I liked being in this one. I hope my mating dance was funny/attractive.

11. I'm on it by Jamal Rivers
I liked the vocal harmonies in this song. Good job all involved.

12. Ray Dawn Chong in Paradise by Long Dong Chong
Another piece that was just all right.

13. John Bates' Improv piece
John is great. I think that's all that needs to be said.
(I wish he would have taken my burlesque suggestion.)

14. Song- Ambivilance, Midnight Phone call or Apothecary?, Mirri Doesn't know yet.
I think Mirri could record some of her songs and have a nice CD of material. This one needed a little more polish, but I still liked it.

15. As Dumb as they Tell Us to Be 2.0 by Todd Ristau and YOU
I love Mad Libs, and Nick's "adjective" moment was priceless.

16. Tears of a Clown, Oh and Blood, lots and lots of Blood. By Luke Christensen
Proof that you don't always need dialogue to be funny. Great performances; expression and physicality do a lot.

I thought the show SUCKED. Like a man dying of thirst and findin' a milk cow sucked. Right from the tit.

Yeah, except fresh cow tit milk is good, and the show was rank and foul
