At TigerLily we always try to have a good time filled with laughter and fun. The Kitchen @ the Hollywood Studio Bar & Grill acts as our “green room.” We @ TigerLily are always running in and out of the kitchen making sure the show is running just the way it should and more often than none some of the coolest funniest and awesome things are happening on stage and off stage simultaneously! You never know who you are going to run into! After 5 plus years TigerLily has become more than a show it’s a place comedians and comedy fans know they can drop by to see some of their favorite people, have a laugh on or off stage and hey just have a good time!
“Tales from the Kitchen: Behind the Curtain @ TigerLily”
** Yep we know we gone for a couple weeks again, we were taking a procrastinators holiday. No Show May 28th we return June 4th for annual Jazz Bday Show.
**One of the fun and great things about TigerLily is seeing all the comedians who come by to just support the show. Walking thru the kitchen you are sure to hear some of the funniest,oddest riffs/jokes that may or may not make it on stage one day. This week the kitchen was crawling with comedians like: Howard Kremer, Seth Morris, Paul Danke, Tyler Greene, Robert Buscemi,April Richardson, Karl Hess to name a few.
** There was much buzz in the kitchen about the new video “FingerDick” made by TL friends/favorites Barry Rothbart and Brooks Wheelan also featuring some TL friends. It is a super funny video that you must see, if it doesn’t make you laugh then maybe you’re dead inside and you should get that checked out! But seriously check out the video : http://FunnyOrDie.com/m/6txk
Caught in the Act
We always enjoy when our favorite comedians drop in, which means we were beyond ecstatic when Nick Kroll dropped by to open the show. Hilarious as always, there is no one like him! Also only Kroll could query the audience on whether or not they believed in ghosts and make it super enjoyable!
TigerLily MC Blaine Capatch and TL fave comedian April Richardson check out the line up while they hang out in the kitchen.
TL fave Kumail Nanjiani stopped by and had the crowd in hysterics while rethinking the color Cyan, wishing he did have magical hologram hands and then taught us all a lesson on how not to repair a VCR. Clearly Kumail is not just a super talented fella but a fascinating one which is why he was featured along with his awesome wife and resident Meltdown curator Emily V. Gordon in LA Weekly’s Fascinating People 2012 issue check it out http://blogs.laweekly.com/arts/2012/05/gordon_nanjiani_people_2012.php
Super funny Brooks Wheelan had the crowd laughing and reevaluating how their lives really were before cell phones, you know when everybody was awkward at a party! Speaking of awkward don’t forget to check out For Shame! Weds 5/23 @ Improv Lab, a show in the TL family produced by Brooks and Jazz that explores all those teen shame memories of loving ridiculous music and music videos. http://hollywood.improv.com/show.cfm?id=158383&key
Chris Garcia, visiting from San Francisco is always a treat. Extremely funny and musical = awsomeness. This time he had us wanting to know the meaning behind the song La Bamba.
Brooks Wheelan, Robert Buscemi, Emily Gordon and Paul Danke keep it real “casual” in the kitchen. We adore them all!
Sean O’Connor is extremely funny and always fun to watch. This time he revealed how as a teen his parents idea of a “rehab” program was summer camp for Magicians, which is also probably the best rehab program as well. If you are free May 22nd you should check out Jazzin hosted by Sean and the super funny Julian McCullough it is always a fun time, http://www.facebook.com/events/333789343358939/
TL favorite and friend Barry Rothbart had his last performance for awhile (he will be in NY for the summer to apply the finishing touches to the highly anticipated documentary Hungry he and TL friend Jeff Cerulli filmed about competitive eating) yeah we know TL will miss him and his scooby doo Old Man Rivers reveals, the Circle Jerk conspiracy and his “This is How we Do it” mantra!
Ryan Singer closed the show with a fantastic set. I don’t think anyone in the audience will forget the imagery of Raccoons performing open heart surgery. It is something so adorably weird that it is awesome and we are into it, which is pretty much the same way we feel about Ryan! :)
