Then there's the kid's show where Amy Averett's son keeps getting in trouble with the ship's captain: Journey to the Brig, Walter.

Have you seen that show where the two old ladies, one of whom is a dog, sing songs? Biddy Diddy?

Nothing that I've done since has been quite as challenging as playing slowly-dying country folk in every show with my first troupe, Three Shot Hicks.

I like that show where a monologist just tells the same old dry stories they always tell, what's it called?

Ive been thinking about the older dudes getting some representation, maybe Paul and I could to do a New York kind of thing, like Two Guys Gone Bonkers or something. It could happen? Or a grounded A&M inspired troupe that, say, Brad could run with, something simple.... Sheep. :P :evil: :arrow:

I'm looking forward to The Prime Directive wherein the cast of In Our Prime improvise a grounded, touching narrative in the world of Star Trek: The Next Generation. The first show will have Jason Oliver guest starring in the role of Wesley Crusher.

I'm going to suggest the name for a troupe:

Barbie has no Nipples
or
Catfish Fajitas
or
Fiends in Low places
or
No Meat No Heat

I can't quite decide

I'm in a troupe with 6 other dudes where we all do Michael Cera impressions. We're called "Cera Seven".
