Comedy? Lamaze? Comedaze! Hosting has never made me so sore...
Giulia wants to always be cute - even if it means putting nipples on her stomach. (Or "Nips on her Fupe," as I like to say. Fupe is short for FUPA - which stands for Fat Upper Pu**y Area - a term my friend April coined to the best of my knowledge. See, entertaining and educational?!)
Here's Becky - she's adorable. Except when guys shout things like "Ching-chong-ching" and "Lookin' good, China!" at her. Then she gets nasty - taking her revenge out on unsuspecting hipsters, holla-ing, "Hey Ironic Moustache! Wanna be in a band?"
Amanda is a poser, but she's still cool. She thinks The Girls Next Door are poseurs - not to mention fools! (What? Rhyme time!) Maybe they'll rip Hefs balls off? If only I had a picture of her shelter dog face... "Which one of your jokes is that, Amanda?" I don't have the manswer...
Allison's boobs teach kids how to read! She also knows a thing or two about shelter dogs, since she sponsors a dog from the North Shore Animal League named Stella. (For a lot of folks, sponsors and Stella go hand in hand.) She doesn't like construction workers or babies, but she does like her boyfriend - sort of...
Ophira (who we put a blue curtain up for since she was wearing a red tank top and we didn't want to lose her in the wall...) prefers male-dominated professions like IT and stand-up. The people she works with in the IT world treat their job like a career, while Ophira prefers to treat her hobbies that way. Soon she'll be moving in with her boyfriend - they've found a lovely meat-crate on the Upper East Side.
This week's line-up is fantastic and our very funny and pregnant (it's so not a watermelon) Carolyn will be hosting.

Above, Christina and Jess, pre-show. Jess has Executive Charisma! (Does that mean she's bossy? HEY!) Below, Ana and Michelle give good hug while Laura smiles as she looks at her notes. Christina is PSYCHED about doing the show! Either that or she's simulating oral. (But I don't usually smile that much...)
Featuring a variety of unpredictable characters, current events, sketches, and song, The Social Affair is a 71-minute collage of the ridiculous. Take your seats as Father Patrick Fitzpatrick takes roll call, behold Darth Vader interviewing for a new job, witness Mein Kampf vs. Dr. Seuss, get caught up on your news, and more. The Social Affair features Katina Corrao, Matt McCarthy, Michael Muldoon, Jenny Rubin, Theron Steiner, Allen Warnock, and Billy Wood.
This foursome sets out to explain romance and reality within the confines imposed by society and/or biology. The joining of these artists formed, in effect, a family- and like most family units - the chemistry is both complimentary and combative. As each comedic monologue unfolds the subjects touched upon include: childhood, parenting, vices, race, projected images, widowhood, sexuality, debt, love, doctors, religion, gender, employers, internet dating, homeland security, nature or nurture, sex, death, the "happily ever after myth," and more sex.
