Kevin Allison added to the lineup!

I am so fired up for this Friday’s show. Not only because we rarely have shows on Fridays, but because it’s a very special Friday…It’s PI DAY!

In honor of this special occasion, we’re doing the theme of “Just Desserts: Stories of Payback.” It’s been a while since I told a story, and I’ve got a really fun one for this show.

Hope you can join us and remember to get there early for a seat and to fill out your Mad Libs forms!
