An evening with Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood


Saturday night Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood – probably best known for being on Whose Line Is It Anyway – came back to the Lyman Center at Southern Connecticut State University.  They said it was their 4th time performing at the University and it was my second time attending.

The show is completely improvised with things being yelled out from the audience, which makes for a completely ridiculous evening. Some of the bits are from Whose Line Is It Anyway? And other bits will never be seen on Whose Line, they tease when the show starts.

The first bit included 2 members of the audience who were to act as any props mentioned in the scene. After taking some time to get their jumpsuits on –  “She puts her pants on like everyone else, one sleeve at a time”, Brad teased, the two did a Shakespearean scene (chosen from a stack of cards) where one kingdom was visiting another.  The audience props needed to be trees, a draw bridge, horses and backpacks, among other props.

In another bit, several audience members were brought up on stage and would have to give an answer when either Colin or Brad raised their hands to fill in the blank in the scene.  Colin and Brad were hunting a crocodile – named Big Al.  It turns out that the croc had eaten Colin’s grandmother, near Colin’s mom’s house.  And that Brad had a tiny wife that fit in his pocket and was able to walk and read minds.

During the Crime bit – Colin was listening to loud music while Brad instructed us to come up with some sort of crime Colin committed.  He was riding a flamingo and gesticulated in public in Naugatuck – at Archibald’s Cat Fluffing & Skillet Tossing Incorporated.  He left a tomato soup can at the scene of the crime.  Brad then had to get Colin to figure out what the crime was and confess to it.

They also did sound effects – Colin had 1 person on stage responsible for his sound effects while Brad took a mic out to the last row and had them alternate the mic from person to person in the row for the sound effects.  They chose their scene from the phone book – it landed on F so they had a Framing & Fruit Basket business.

My favorite bit had to be one called “Kick It” where the two would go through a scene (this one about collecting rubber duckies) and whenever one heard the other say something that sounded like a good song – they’d say “Kick It” causing the other to go into the rap song until the other said “Word” (I’m not sure I explained that really well.)  Most of the rap bits were relatively short- with Colin cheating and “Wording” himself on one of them – until the last one – where Brad rapped about a toy box for what seemed like forever as Colin just watched and drank imaginary cups of water. It actually turned out to be a pretty good rap including all sorts of toy box toys including etch-a-sketch and legos.

At the end of the show they sang a song and recapped the evening.

A ton of fun, a ton of laughs and if they are coming near you, definitely check them out!


Book Review: Hot Shots


Hot Shots is a book which contains 3 different stories by 3 different authors all of course revolving around fire fighters.

The first story is Fired Up which is the story about Hannah and Cole.  Hannah watches for wildfires from a tower in the National Park and at night, she has sexy radio conversations with Cole, a firefighter.  When her radio cuts out one night while the two are talking, Cole decides to take time off and head to the tower to bring her a new radio and to see what happens. The two seem to hit it off immediately, though Cole has a rule about staying for more than one night.  Will Hannah make him forget the rules and stick around a bit longer?

In the second story, Sizzle, Photojournalist Maysen, the owner of HotShots magazines, takes a trip to Lanville to work on an article about the firefighters there. She is immediately attracted to Clay, the hot fire chief, but he seems to be avoiding her.  When she finds out he lied about a trip to Tempe, she goes to his house in the middle of a storm to try and get their interview completed. What ends up happening is a bit more sex by the fireplace and a bit less professional interview, but with such a strong attraction between the two, did you really expect something else to happen? But Maysen will have to go back home to her job soon – what will happen between her and Clay then?

The final story is Five-Alarm Masquerade. It is about Abby, who we first meet as her house is burning. She is being comforted by one of the fire fighters, Gavin.  It is not until her BFF Sierra shows up that she actually looks at Gavin and sees how hot he is.  Neither of them can get each other out of their minds. Gavin ends up taking a chance and inviting Abby to a Five-Alarm Masquerade where people go in masquerade masks and hook up with other strangers invited to the party. Abby is convinced the package that arrives with lingerie is for Sierra (who she is staying with until her house is back to normal) but decides to go anyway.  Rather than hook up with her one night with both of their identities a secret, Gavin decides he may want to reveal himself to Abby so they can have something more… will it work out in his favor?

I enjoyed reading these stories. They all obviously contain adult content and they are short – which means they are quick and easy to read but also there is not all that other “fluff” of a background story like some of the longer books have.

I received a free e-copy in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
