Last night's show was incredibly fun. Everyone brought their "A" game, and the audience responded. We really got a lot of laughs, and of course that makes actors work even harder. Like a carrot dangled in front of a mule, laughter urges us to keep going.
My favorite laugh I received was in a game called Freeze Tag. I was in a pretzel-like position with a young man and said, "But this is how we do surgery in Czechoslovakia."
Everyone got good laughs, which makes for a fun show. One of the objects of improv is to make the other people look good, and I think we cooperated well to do just that.

Afterward, nearly everyone went to Rudy's to begin celebrating Nick's 25th birthday. Fun there as well. A bunch of us stood on both sides of a bar and Ray, Dennis, and Tom (MJ's husband) ordered many different appetizers. Plenty of food. I had a few beers and stayed until after midnight. Had a very enjoyable evening.
Here's a picture Ray took. Four of the seven BroadMinded members: Melissa, Megan, Me, and Mary Jo. (Gee, my name does begin with M like everyone else's if I use Me instead of Jer.)
