The best part of that was Drew making fun of him in Jeopardy after and Larry was just so clueless. When I was in Vegas two years ago, they chose a guy for sound effects that didn't make any sounds. He was just horrible. I think he was embarrassed so he proceeded to be a total ass when he got off the stage. He went back to his seat and then would not shut up. I remember at one point Brad yelling at him something like oh now you have something to say after not making any sounds on stage. The guy ended up being removed by security.

I've seen that happen before. What I don't get is when the guys are giving them verbal clues why they don't just go with it. I mean the concept of the game isn't that hard even if you've never seen it before.

I think Moving People is much harder than it looks. I moved Brad too and he was dead weight. I always thought they'd at least help you, but he didn't. Plus he was playing someone with a back injury so he kept screaming when I'd go to move him. Scared the heck out of me the first time. I've played Sound Effects before too. Thank goodness it was at the Improv and not some big venue. I didn't want to be up there, but I figured why not make the best of it and tried to make the sounds. Of course Colin came up with some interesting interpretations of my sounds, but it ended up being fun.
