It’s a freezing night in Chicago and the cozy Hideout is warm and welcoming. Tonight’s event is a comedy game show. The idea of the show is someone will tell an embarrassing story, and then the piano player will write a song about it that goes to one of the songs on the wheel. The wheel on stage has these options: Still The One by Shania Twain, Time of Your Life by Green Day, Time of My Life, Jack and Diane, That’s Amore, It Was a Very Good Year by Sinatra, Golden Girls Theme, ?, Forever Young, Wind Beneath My Wings, Winds of Change, and Changes by Bowie.
The first guest told a story about her Italian Dad. The second story was about attending a Richard Simmons workout session with the main himself hitting on him. The third and final story involved sneezing on a window as Lady Gaga walked by. The wheel had chosen Changes, and it was hilariously renamed to Contagious! While leaving I found myself singing to myself, C-C-Contagious!
Today’s show was their 50th show. It was clear this night that it has lasted due to a great format and the creative co-hosts, Brian Costello and Abraham Levitan. Be sure to catch this monthly show the next time on Friday, December 12th!
