I’ve shared this here before, haven’t I? Probably, I dunno. It’s a great poster by Boston McCown. I’ve been crazy busy recently with the album release stuff and Friendlytown’s Second Bell Festival appearance on Saturday (as well as caving to join Instagram to promote these things but mostly share photos of my cat). Anyway, come … Continue reading

091: Friendlytown Goes Virtual!
Mannnnnn. We’ve really done it now. We accidentally digitized all of Friendlytown into a virtual world, including all of its mayors/citizens! Now they’re going to have to escape through a series of challenges devised by some sort of mastermind that’s been pulling the strings all this time! They don’t even know the games that they may play! Can we escape from this Original Sci-Fi Movie(tm) in time for the council meeting to really start in the real world? Probably not, but we’ll have an audience of people watching every move we make!

089: Friendlytown Presents “Home Groan Pun Battle!”
CHECK IT OUT IT’S THE RETURN OF FRIENDLYTOWN RADIO! Sorry for the long delay, but we had a lot of stuff to tend to over this past month, and again, we don’t make any money off of this insanely fun use of our time.
This week’s edition featured the very funny Kelly Morgan and Glenn Reed traversing the mountains from Asheville to host Friendlytown’s first-ever PUN BATTLE! We had almost 9 citizens and mayors draw their pun-swords and face off in the simultaneously best and worst competition involving pithy plays on words. Either way, it was PUNbelievable (NONE OF YOU HAD BETTER STEAL THAT GOLD RIGHT THERE). Continue reading

084: Friendlytown Gets Audited!
Nothing is certain except death, taxes, and that the smell of the burning remains of the Friendlytown Hummus Factory will forever be in our clothing. But this week, we’re focusing on our taxes.
Friendlytown’s tax revenue department is sending an auditor (Shane Rhyne, CPA) to ask questions about some peculiar deductions and claims made in the Friendlytown tax returns this year. Sit back and watch our comedian residents squirm as they attempt to explain their way out of this mess.
Come on out and see why the local press has recently said, “This is a show that takes place every Monday.” Continue reading
083: Friendlytown Hosts a REAL Open Mic
A note from your guest hosts, The Copy Writers: Hello fellow artists, we would like to give you an opportunity to share your gifts with your fellow craftsman of creativity. We will be hosting an Open Mic at the appropriately grungy Pilot Light. Ripped jeans and scarves are not required but highly encouraged. The night will be filled with the exchange of imagination, such as but not limited to: dramatic readings, songs, interpretive dance, instrumental expression, contortionists, method silence, etc. There’s only one rule: no stand-up comedy. None. Continue reading
Hey, I’m Recording an Album on June 30th

082: Friendlytown Canonizes a Patron Saint!
(Live at the Pilot Light 4/2/18) FRIENDLYTOWN NEEDS A PATRON SAINT! Someone to look to when we require comfort and clarity in spite of hearing Uncle Terrence tell us for the fiftieth time how he won that wing-eating contest in Ann Arbor almost 15 years ago now (those poor butterflies). But who, or what, would best soothe (or exacerbate) the struggles and strife of Friendlytown living?
Hosted by the Pastor of the Friendlytown Non-Denominational Churthedralgogsque (Chur-thee-drul-gogsk), Beth Tomkins. Continue reading
