After over two long years of having to deal with the scourge of Mayor Chasteen’s talent, charm, and inexorable occasional mustaches, we are finally getting rid of the bastard! He has decided to move to Atlanta, and to that we say: not before we banish you first. So, we have decided to gather many of our city council members (and a few interlopers) to propose why or why not Aaron should be allowed to set foot on Friendlytown soil ever again!
Our local Pagemaster, Jaxx, takes the reigns for this, the premiere meeting of the Friendlytown Book Club! One by one, we get to chat about some super meaningful books that Jaxx handed to us as we got onstage. In some cases, like that of Dissenting Mayor Pamela, people came prepared with their own insane books to discuss. This was a great night. Enjoy listening to us philosophize our way through this one.
Does anyone in our fair community know who really crimed that murder? Was some lonely hustler hustlin’ that hustle on the side of the hooch swabblers in the ram tam wham bam thank you ma’am? Thankfully, Flint Chumley, voted Friendlytown’s #4 most boozy yet #1 most shadow-drenched detective, is on the case. He’s going to share those seductive tales about the underbelly of our town that THE MAN (Mayor Tyler, probably) doesn’t want you to know. We are through the looking glass, every one is a suspect, and I could swear that Bartending Mayor Todd overcharged me for that last Mickey’s.
We recently discovered just how much we were spending monthly for our city’s storage unit, and given some upcoming budget cuts, we’ve decided to go and empty it. With the help of our Mayors and City Council members, we’re going to go through some of our most beloved items and decide which things we just can’t bear to part with. Special appearances by comics from New York and Mobile!
Attention, bearded dudes in flannel shirts rolled up to your elbows! It’s time for Friendlytown to open up our very own craft brewery. Our official Brewmaster Liz Brooks is this week’s host. Not only is she presenting our concepts for the coolest, most trendiest craft beer facility possible, she also brought her very own home brew, which we all had to taste when we got onstage. Budweiser or Coors will be buying us out before we know it!
THE. TRUTH. IS. OUT. THERE. Or so says our city council. We’ve been hearing a whole bunch of strange accounts of extraterrestrials showing up around town, seen out over the Affable Ocean and even around the burnt ruins of the QEDopolis. This week, Detective Donnie Marsh visits us from places unknown (Chattanooga) to get to the bottom of this. He interviews various Friendlytownspeople about their claims. ARE WE ALONE? WHY IS MY CAPS LOCK STUCK
We just assume every town does this, you know, bringing a consultant in to help us set up an agglomerated dating profile at a city council meeting. Fortunately, Friendlytown’s love guru St. Thomas has all the right questions to get us on the path to sweet, sweet romance.
FRIENDLYTOWN’S XMAS VHS BONANZA TONIGHT! Come on down to Friendlytown tonight (Pilot Light, 7:30pm) to witness what can only be described as ‘regrettable culture’ at its finest. Chicago comedian Tom Wisdom has been running ‘VHS Comedy’ in his hometown for a while now, and he’s bringing it to Knoxville for the first time tonight with …
In “Homer vs. the Eighteenth Amendment” (perhaps the best of Season Eight and unquestionably one of the last great episodes of The Simpsons), Homer walks into Moe’s bustling speakeasy and says he’s glad Moe is back in business. “Yeah,” Moe replies, “That was a scary coupla hours.” Well, First Friday Comedy is not officially back in business, …
