The weird thing was, I think Larry was able to make better animal noises than Drew was - not that they were really appreciated when he was making them. You're right, though, he was totally clueless. Of course I think one to many b-day toasts may have had something to do with that.

Oh gee, that makes a lot of sense. Because you can't manage to hold your own you then try to make life miserable for the performers and the rest of the audience. Correct me if I'm wrong, wasn't there a slightly loud and obnoxious person at one of this year's Vegas shows. I believe both Greg and Brad had at him during Questions Only before he finally shut up. I was afraid he was going to keep going all night.

She was getting great verbal clue. She just kept asking "Am I supposed to move you? Do I have to touch you?" I wouldn't mind but Brad gives a very thorough description of what to do, as well as demonstrating, before the game even begins. Hello? Can you pay attention?

Brad does kinda go dead weight. When I was moving him he wanted me to move him to get a towel. For some odd reason I decided I didn't want to make him walk then (although I did do a good job at the walking later on) so instead I had him leaning. When I went to lean him, he put all of his weight on me. I thought for sure I was going to end up on the floor with him on top of me. Given that there's almost and 18 inch difference in height between the two of us (yes, I'm quite vertically challenged) I knew that wouldn't be a pretty picture.

I've never done Sound Effects. This may sound odd, but I'd like to give it a whirl.
