DRUNK TALK Opens at The Dragonfly in Hollywood, June 6, 2010
May 24, 2010, Hollywood, CA - DRUNK TALK, the new full-immersion, live comedy production from Thomas Blake, the lauded co-producer/director of Los Angeles’ absurdist Point Break LIVE!, and Lance Whinery, who has written for the hit CBS sitcom Rules of Engagement, opens for eight performances at The Dragonfly beginning Sunday night, at 8 p.m., June 6, 2010. DRUNK TALK transforms a real bar into an interactive, high-spirited comedy event, involving the entire audience, that’s guaranteed to keep you laughing... and guessing.
With DRUNK TALK, Blake plans on amplifying and accentuating the successful style of innovative, lo-fi, full immersion comedy theater that has catapulted Point Break LIVE!, into a coast-to-coast, multi-city smash and the current longest running, live comedy theater production in Los Angeles.
Enter the world of McSwiggin's Tavern, where you're not just an audience member, but a cast member playing the part of an unsuspecting patron subjected to the antics of the drinking establishment’s regular cast of zany characters as they try and cope with the looming reality that their favorite local bar is closing down after tonight. Now, with no place to drink up and chew over their aspirations, will they be forced to actually get out there and live their lives? Or can the bar be saved?
Blake states, “Imagine defusing the decadent, bleak edginess of Barfly with hilarious non-stop, booze-infused ‘bluer’ witticisms and punch lines ala Cheers, shaken with spontaneous and unsuspecting adlibbed hilarity of Tony and Tina’s Wedding, and stirred with the uproarious energy level of Point Break LIVE! A guy walks into a bar… who knows what can happen next? Expect the unexpected. Hilarity ensues. That’s DRUNK TALK.”
DRUNK TALK, produced by Blake’s On The Fly Productions, stars Tobias Jelinek from Point Break LIVE!, Saturday Night Live writer Danielle Kasen, Kim Estes (who is up for a possible Emmy for his work on House), Steven Sears and David Alfano from LA's Second City, Greg Hoyt from LA's UCB, and stand-up comedian and writer Lance Whinery. DRUNK TALK also introduces new talent, Kirsten Berman, Bruce Schroffel, and Chad Olsen. (Cast Bios Here).
