Just wanted to do a short post about Finnemore at the Stop Trying to Make Sketch happen. I am so glad I went! We almost skipped it and we were late. We had been a bit concerned that the lineup might change esp as the venue had pulled the listing for the show lineup but when we arrived he was rehearsing out front. :) It’s weird to recognize the voice of someone you’ve never met.
We missed the first act but got to see everything else and I was actually glad to be standing in the back as there was audience participation for those in front. My favorite non-Finnemore thing was a thing they did with toy teeth to the Johnny Cash version of Hurt. The Finnemore bits were excellent, some familiar some not. I don’t want to say too much (in case of spoilers) other than that it was really funny and he makes all the expressions you picture in your head. It was the perfect end to a tremendously long travel day.
It was well worth the price of the tickets and drinks. FYI in case he ever does this again the venue does take foreign credit cards. It’s also tiny so you will be able to see very well wherever you sit. :)
