Community Show & Tell on May 7 at Dreamland Tonight

dreamlandtonightlogoJust a reminder for anyone planning to join us at the Dreamland Theater this Friday for the next episode of Dreamland Tonight… We’re going to be trying out a new segment called Community Show & Tell, and we’d love to have folks in the audience bring interesting things with them that they can talk about. And it doesn’t have to be anything of any particular monetary value, either. We’re not looking to do an Ypsi version of the Antiques Road Show. We’d much rather have you bring things of personal significance, like a box of your teeth that got knocked out by the handlebars of friend’s bike in the first grade, a bad gift from an institutionalized aunt, or maybe the toupee of a former lover. Nothing is too mundane, or crazy. Is there a certain streetlamp you feel as though you have to touch every day, or else a loved one will die? Well, if so, bring a picture. Do you have a husband who talks in his sleep? Bring a tape. I don’t know that we’ll get to everyone, so I can’t promise TV time, but we’ll try to get to as many people as we possibly can.

showandtellIn addition to Community Show & Tell, we also have a lot of great guests lined up. We’ve got professional wrestling coach Bash Boulder, Dug Song from the Ann Arbor Skate Park, Forest Juziuk performing as Skate Laws, and the men of Manhole. It should be a great time… Doors open at 7:30. Show starts at 8:00. Adult tickets are $7. Kids, I believe, are free… See you there.

    I can’t be there, but, if I could, I’d bring one of the gay porn videos I found when cleaning my dad’s apartment after his death. I kept a few for sentimental reasons.

    Ted, maybe you could hold on to that for the July 10 “adult” show.

    What about a segment where old people complain about their various health ailments?

    For what it’s worth, I’m not kidding.

    I’d settle for an “Old People Complain” segment. It’s worked on 60 Minutes for decades.

    How about a segment on periods or menopause, no kidding.

    Not to be gross, but you could have a competition to see Who Bleeds More over the course of a show. Either two menstruating women could compete, or you could have someone with a bloody nose competing with a menstruating woman.

    I also would like to see a Show Us Your Scar show.

    Concentrate says this about Dreamland Tonight……

    It’s “at least as good as Last Call with Carson Daly”
