(Here at) Jurassic Park [Theme Song]

Last night we had the pleasure of enjoying a comedy show at the DIY Venue, Jurassic Park. John Cessna and Ad Liberation provided the comedy in the intimate setting. Fun was had by all.

To open for Ad Liberation, Andrew Preston provided the audience with a nice sing-along diddy about the venue, comedy, and drinking. A highlight of the evening. Enjoy!

Three Pillars of Comedy Documentation and Interview

Three Pillars of Comedy Purdue University April 3rd, 2009 Flyer

We attended the three pillars of comedy put on by the Purdue improv group, The Crazy Monkeys. The night consisted of three different types of comedy: short form, long form, and sketch. The Ship of Fools, The Crazy Monkeys, and the University tWits performed each of these styles respectively.

We recorded the introduction to night given by Shauvon at Hot Box Pizza, followed by Andrew’s warm-up of the crowd before the Ship of Fools came out on stage.


We missed the intro to the Crazy Monkey’s show at Greyhouse so we were unable to capture that audio.

Before the third installment of this great event started, I managed to snag an interview with Logan Lampton, a member of the Crazy Monkeys. We talked about the night, how he become a member, and the process of animating imaginary people.


And, like the idiots we are, nothing of the University tWits was recorded. So there you have it, an incomplete documentation of the nights events. Enjoy!
