Because this'll be a really good one. Not that they're not all good. I mean, all our storytellers are totally excellent--but this one is especially gre... Oh, forget it.

Night Of A Thousand Einsteins

Last night's Grand Opening of Ochi's Lounge, was packed with rabid truth-nuts and a real success, if you don't count the severe blow to my supply of t-shirt prizes. These geniuses were really paying attention, because nearly half of them snared the Liar. It was a slaughterhouse, like shooting fish in a barrel, easy as pie. (Sorry for the violent anti-animal-rights and high-fructose imagery; I'm just angry. Those shirts aren't cheap.) Play the video to see who was responsible. Maybe this guy, maybe not.

Please come back on Monday, November 5th for our next show at this friendly new club.


October 22: Great New Club. Same B.S.

On Monday, October 22, Liar will be kicking off the grand opening week at Ochi's Lounge, "The next level at Comix." Admission is FREE (Oh, there's a one-item minimum. Have some fries.) And if you come to this show, you'll get an Admit Two Pass for the main Comix showroom, that will be good for the Moth Grandslam!

Who can you trust?
James "Trust Me" Braly
Martin "Trust Me" Dockery
Tara "Trust Me" Clancy
Peter "Trust Me" Lubell.

October 22 @ 8PM
353 West 14th Street (downstairs at Comix, corner of 9th Ave)

Here's what the Comix people have planned for the place:
"Ochi's Lounge is the next level of Comix. Say goodbye to smelly co-ed bathrooms, bad service and musty, cramped spaces that have become the standard underground comedy experience. We take what you love about independent shows produced by some of the champions of the comedy scene and put them in a comfortable lounge with a dedicated staff serving delicious food and beverages that won't break your bank account. We have a liquor license, clean spacious bathrooms and no rodents dropping by for unexpected guest spots.

"Located downstairs at Comix at 353 W. 14th Street, Ochi's Lounge opens for pre-show happy hour at 5:30 PM every Monday through Saturday. There is no cover charge and a one item minimum purchase for every performance. Join us during the grand opening week October 22nd thru 28th and receive an Admit Two pass for the main Comix showroom!"

Who Fed You A Line At The Café?

The newbie nudist? The callow caller? The sapphic sapling? The poor schmuck comic who got stuck following twin transexual magicians? (You try to think up a snappy couplet for that one.) Play the video to find out:
