Ah, too bad accents don't always type well. I was hearing an old Amos 'n' Andy bit in my head. However, making fun of poor working class Brits is timeless. Well played.

Or maybe he's a Super-Spy - in which case that would be cool.

These two things are not mutually exclusive, of course.

Aw, man. Someone should do a movie (or a USA TV series) about a spy wrongly accused of something or other and using his Super-Spy training to stay one step ahead of his pursuers. Yeah, no-one's ever seen anything like that before!

You're too talented to perform here, end of story.

Quit wasting our time.
Get the fuck out of here.

Bad news, friend.
It's not gonna happen.

Sorry if there was a misunderstanding.
It's not the end of the world.

Just... go away.

Go.

You're trespassing
and I will have to call the police.

Don't you look at me!

Welcome Jordan. Improv is fun. It's basically that Drew Carey show, Who's That Knocking at My Door.

Welcome to the Love Boat, Jordan. we have a great community here!

is that like that show Thank God You're Here? because that's the show that got me into improv. i thought to myself, man, if I could just come up with some prepared bits that hapless celebrities could plug non sequitirs into that i would then quickly ignore in order to force through the predetermined narrative like some awful live action Mad Lib and call THAT improv...then I could meet David Alan Grier, too!

sigh...the dream continues...

i just want to thank everyone for being so welcoming these past few months, especially while i learn the ropes of this "Maestro" (have you noticed that it sounds like MICE-tro? maybe we could do something with that...). you've all been so warm and inviting...

...except for that Brockman guy. he beat me up with his keyboard stand and took my lunch money. then he said "welcome to Earth" and punched me in the face. :oops:
