Spence and Brian are kicking it up a level this year. Here’s how this works:
– Bring an object to the show (something you don’t mind being thrown and caught, squeezed, twisted, duct taped, bitten, or eaten)
– Put it on the edge of the stage before the curtain goes up
– They’ll use the best objects in the show
– Laugh, gasp, and be entertained
