MyMusic Live! with Phoenyx

MyMusic Live with Joe Hanson, Adam Acuragi, and Phoenyx

Check out Phoenyx doing their improv hair metal (acoustically) on MyMusic Live from last week.  The action gets going at about 11 minutes in but you can click on the annotations at the top of the clip to go straight to the two performance pieces. We took a web-based audience suggestion for both performances and even had their host Metal perform with us during the second one.

We asked the audience for both their second favorite day of the week and their favorite spicy food.  We chose “Wednesday Jalepenos” and Gunner and Chopper hit it out of the park.  Next we rolled the dice more than ever by having Metal improvise a song with us “5th Grade-Style”.  It had been years since Metal had been a part of our lives, but he clearly hadn’t missed a beat.

10 minutes and 11,000 comments later we were done and pleased to show a new audience our improv hair metal style.

Big ups to the Fine Brothers and the entire crew for putting up with the sequins and spandex that is Phoenyx.  You’re never sure how your ridiculousness will play with people who don’t know about improv (acoustic) hair metal, but they certainly embraced it.

Give us a thumbs up on Youtube, comment, and/repost!  Also a photo gallery is listed below that captured some the backstage shinanigans.

The outer limits of comedy

New Stranger than Fiction Show Logo - Made from 223% post-consumer waste

The Champ is here! The Champ is here!

We’ve been long overdue for a redesign of The Stranger than Fiction Show’s promo materials and we’re proud to show off the new look.  The new design comes from the mind of comedian/producer extraordinaire Glenn Takakjian and in corporates an homage to the classic tv show The Outer Limits.  Glenn is a dear, dear friend of the show and a frequent guest star of the Stranger than Fiction Show.

Live Shows:

I’ve got a couple of shows this week starting off with my regular gig on tonight March 18th with The Stranger than Fiction Show at the LA Connection in Sherman Oaks, CA Not sure who’s stopping by the show but I’m sure we’re got some magic tucked away somewhere.  But if we run out, I got Charlie Sheen on speed dial and we might be able to tap into his finger supply.

Monday the 21st I’ll be performing with Phoenyx (you know . . . the band that tells you you’re never gonna die . . .) at “Laughs on Tap” at The White Harte Pub 22456 Ventura Blvd. Woodland Hills, CA – “Laughs on Tap” is a night of stand-up and improv comedy at your local Woodland Hills watering hole with NO COVER! I know.  My mind was blown as well when I heard that. It will be my maiden voyage at Laughs on Tap (organized by Kaleena Massaker and it should provide you will some violent torpedoes of truth.

Or a death spell. A cocaine fueled death spell.

Enjoy your hang over, bitches.
