Spray tans & boy bands rock Thursday nights at Go Comedy!

(Scott Meyers, 2/7/2011)
The comedy spoof Jersey Show – Season 1(Abridged) will be joined by Ferndale’s newest musical sensation, the boy band show Menllenium beginning Thursday, February 17. Jersey Show -Season 1 (Abridged) will close February 27 while Menllenium will continue through the end of March. Sundays at Go Comedy! will welcome a new open improv jam, Sunday Sauce at 7pm beginning February 13.

“Menllenium” is the biggest boy band in the world! Everyone knows their songs, has seen their videos, and their posters plaster bedroom walls from coast to coast. Go Comedy!’s latest original comedy examines where this boy band started and what put them over the edge. Originally a Second City Level 5 class show directed by Nancy Hayden Edwards and performed in different incarnations at a number of venues including Go Comedy!’s Proving Grounds, this show is now a full on re-imagining of the group’s origins and exploits.

Menllenium is written by and features Go Comedy! resident company members Ryan Parmenter (Plymouth), Andrew Seiler (Roseville), Tommy Simon (Detroit), with Micah Caldwell (Westland) and Clint Lohman (Plymouth). The show is directed by Tommy LeRoy (Ferndale) with music by the cast, Ryan Garnes, Ben Mullins, and Ryan Parmenter. Come see what happens underneath the lyrics in Menllenium Thursdays at 9pm February 17 through March 31.

Jersey Show Season 1 (Abridged)

The creation of co-writers Go Comedy! resident company member Lesley Braden-Phillips and Kathleen Lietz, Jersey Show Season 1 (Abridged) is an irreverent romp chronicling the entire first season of MTV’s reality show, The Jersey Shore.  Like the TV show, this original production will offer all the partying, one-liners and abs that have become a standard of American Pop-Culture.

From dance clubs to the ever-accommodating Seaside Heights jacuzzi, a cast of 10 actors will bring the show to life for die-hard fans and those unaware of “Snookie” or “The Situation.” The cast includes Jennifer Bloomer (Dearborn Heights), Lesley Braden-Phillips (Royal Oak), Tony Castellani (Berkley), Michelle Giorlando (Royal Oak), Clint Lohman (Plymouth), John Nawaczyk (Ferndale), Brian Papandrea (Plymouth), Heather Sejnowski (Royal  Oak), Brett Thurman (Plymouth) and Hailey Zureich (Ferndale).  Jersey Show Season 1 (Abridged) continues Thursdays at 8pm through February 24.
