At the top of the show, the Greenbelt Greenbelts garnered the most audience support, and were able to pick the run order and get first choice of the free agents. They went with the mystery door free agent, the Speakeasy Constable. the Mopac Mofos picked up Chris Baldenhofer and the Congress Bats picked up the Ghetto Sketch Warlock, Bryan “Lubu” Roberts.
The Mopac Mofos opened the show with a tight La Ronde-inspired montage. Big laughs abound, but it wasn’t enough to eek out a win in this field of competitors.
The Congress Bats boldly decided to dress up as Bats and then do a Bat, an improv format that takes place entirely in the dark. A bold move, considering that a poorly executed Bat runs the risk of completely alienating the audience. They stepped up to the challenge and performed one of the best Bats to ever happen at ColdTowne.
The Greenbelt Green Belts went on to destroy the competition to advance to the semi finals on August 18th with a show that included two key ingredients to any comedy show: references to balls and karate.
The next preliminary round is on August 10th at 8:30. The Immutably Misanthropic McMeullers of Middle Ridgetop vs. The Murchison Middle Schoolers Vs. The Bee Cave Honey Boo Boo Children of Str8 Death! Tickets here.
