Thursday Tidbits

PhotobucketSome of you fellow nerds may already be squealingly aware of this, but we're going to tell you anyway: as reported here by the Chicago Comedy Examiner, the guys behind Mystery Science Theater 3000 are coming to the Lakeshore Theater for a live show. Show creator Joel Hodgson, Trace Beaulieu (Crow), and J. Elvis Weinstein (Tom Servo), Mary Jo Pehl (Pearl Forrester) and Frank Conniff (TV’s Frank) will riff live onstage December 18-20 with "Cinematic Titanic."

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that, aside from shooting a beam of subatomic matter into the most powerful particle accelerator ever in existence, physicists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (more commonly known as CERN) are taking group improv lessons, so they can "think creatively about some of the toughest questions of physics, such as why gravity is so much weaker than the other fundamental forces, and why 95% of the universe seems to be missing." Who knew improv had such practical applications?

Andy Dick has been calling iO looking for "his L.A. friends," and talking about his recent tenth stint in rehab, confusing the interns who answer the phones there.

PhotobucketTime Out Chicago likes the guys behind sketch group Kerpatty, notably "Pat Dwyer’s unflappable physical comedy." They also agree with us that Sarah Haskins is awesome, and are equally enthused about the upcoming third season of Impress These Apes at the Lakeshore Theater.
