Feeling a little stiff? Make fun of bad movies.
New Daisy Theatre, 330 Beale

You know that one friend you have that all you have to do is look at one another and burst into laughter. Hopefully you have one. Everyone should. Bring that friend to this showing of this really bad movie from 1987 and help comedians Damnit Scotty, Reverend John Hancock, Doug Gillon, Benny Elbows, Ross Turner, and Jonny Bratsveen make fun of it.

Mom got a phone call one day. It was my grandma. She was concerned because she heard that us kids ran around the neighborhood unsupervised. I remember Mom slamming the phone down, marching around the corner, returning to a next door neighbors house, and scolding the woman next door. Turns out that the lady around the corner went to church with my aunt. She had been told by the neighbor that all four of the kids in our house ran around the neighborhood unsupervised. My aunt told my grandma who made the mistake of calling my mom. But right at the moment of scolding the neighbor, my younger brother—who had escaped from the bathtub—was streaking down the street dripping wet and wearing nothing but a mischievous grin. I don’t quite remember what happened next, but it might have been the exact moment my dear sweet mother lost the battle with us kids. If you didn’t grow up in my childhood neighborhood, check out this performance based on the classic book about children left to their own devices.
