Hiya Folks!

It’s that time of year again! And by that “that time of year” I mean autumn. It is autumn. And of course autumn means that it is soccer season. So that’s that.

BUT SOMETHING ELSE THAT IS FUN IS AUDITIONING FOR SLOW CHILDREN AT PLAY! That’s right, Boston University’s premiere sketch comedy troupe SLOW CHILDREN AT PLAY will be holding auditions on Saturday, September 18 at Noon in the College of Arts and Sciences room 325.

You don’t need to have anything prepared for auditions, just show up with an open mind and be ready to make some peeps laugh. Also, be ready TO laugh, just in case someone funny shows up. The auditions will have a very relaxed atmosphere, and are really just a chance for us to get to know you as a comedian. We promise that you will have fun. Though if you had previously planned on renting a moon bounce that afternoon then you might want to skip auditions, because that is the only thing that could possibly be more fun.

So remember: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2010. 12pm EASTERN STANDARD TIME. CAS ROOM 326. This is the only opportunity in this beautiful year of 2010 to become a part of the slow children magic, so do not miss out.

Love u and miss u,
Mr. Business DeLuxembourg

This Year's Fall Shows!

Picture all of the Slow Kids entering the court of a packed TD Garden with "Let Me Clear My Throat" by DJ Cool blasting on the loudspeakers. We are chanting "We ba-ack! We ba-ack!" The crowd is going wild.

That is how we feel for the beginning of our 2010-2011 school year.

Now stop picturing that, and read the rest of this blog post.

Rolls, Soups, Fox, Hollywood, Business, and I (Pluto) are all excited to start a new year of sketch comedy! (Our buddy Blitz is studying in London for the semester. We're going to assume that studying in England solely consists of watching episodes of the old The Office) Right now, we're awesomelyinsanelysososoooo excited for auditions on September 18th in CAS Room 325.

We can't wait for a fun year of sketch comedy. We already had two awesomelyinsanelysososoooo (I just decided that "awesomelyinsanelysososoooo" is the only adjective I want to use for the rest of my life. I understand the impracticality of the previous sentence) FYSOP shows, and here are the dates for our upcoming shows. We hope to see you at all of them! Save the date!

Below is Pluto giving an example of how to take a picture of something Slow Kids-related. He is now in the running for two free tickets. Good job, Pluto.

Or, if contests are too much for you to handle, then you can just buy a ticket at the GSU Link today and tomorrow. Or just buy it at the door.

Remember, our show is this Saturday at 8 PM in Tsai Auditorium in CAS. Be there or be...there. Yeahhhh.

If you want to buy tickets, we'll be selling at the GSU Link all of next week. That's at the entrance to the GSU near the stairs that lead to Metcalf. Come find our table and buy a ticket! Or at least mingle with some Slow Kids. I'll be there, minglin'. But, of course, you can still buy tickets at the door-if they don't sell out.
We are so excited for this show. Or at least I am. That's why I'm posting this at 2:21 am EST. We can't wait to perform all of our new material from this semester! The show will be so funny. Trust me, I'm in Slow Kids.

If you have no idea who we are, check out our show from last fall, NEW PRODUCT! Here's the link for that:

Also, here's a map to Tsai Auditorium if you need it:

See you on April 17th!


PS It's also my cousin's birthday that day. Wish him "Happy Birthday" if you see him.
