SOTY = Show of the Year.
And Lost Moon Radio ran away with it on Friday night at St. Nick’s Pub. I see a lot of comedy and this was by far the most creative show I’ve seen in 2009.
Lost Moon Radio is a one hour radio show hosted by 1960′s DJ, “Jupiter Jack”. In between Jupiter Jack’s ramblings of days gone by, the audience is treated to skits, commercials, and radio promos performed live by a company of actors and a 7-piece band.
The writing was off the charts. A show like SNL should just scoop up the entire cast of Lost Moon Radio. It would be 100x better.
One of my favorite skits was this song about Jesus being born:
I also think the theater at St. Nick’s pub added to the experience. I had no idea there was a theater there and it is the coolest place ever. Small, quaint, and perfect for comedy.
There have been 5 productions of Lost Moon Radio, including this latest run called “The Holidays” – all at St. Nick’s. I’m definitely looking forward to much more from these folks. And don’t be surprised if you see this thing made into a television show or a popular podcast or even a Sirius radio show. It’s that good.
