The Last Hurrah Returns This Sunday!

This Sunday, The Last Hurrah returns to the Maryland Ensemble Theatre!

There are a lot of things associated with April 20th, primarily drug use. On April 19th, The Last Hurrah will return to the Maryland Ensemble Theatre the delve in the seedy depths of Frederick’s underground (and no, that’s not a play on MET’s location beneath the ground). During a panel discussion that is sure to warrent numerous Pulitzer Prize nominations as well as a write up in High Times magazine, we’ll be interviewing a real drug dealer*.

Join us Sunday April 19th at 7pm for an evening of FREE comedy and thought provoking discussion.

*Due to legal reasons we must disclaim that the “real drug dealer” is actually an actor portraying a drug dealer. No actual drugs will be dealt or consumed.

Episode featuring:
Jack Evans
Caitlyn Joy
James McGarvey

Christ is coming to town, he should be here around 8. In the meantime, he’s tasked John (Kevin Cole) with setting up his last meal. Unfortunately it’s off to a rough start as Judas (Christine McQuaid) forgets the bread and Thomas (Caitlyn Joy) neglects to bring the wine. This, all made the more troubling as Mary (Katie Rattigan) is expected to arrive at any minute and you know how she can be. Can this group of disciples nail it together before Jesus arrives?

The World’s Smallest St. Paddy’s Day Parade – This Sunday

March Poster

This Sunday, the Frederick County St. Paddy’s Day planning committee will meet for the last time to put the final touches on the world’s smallest St. Paddy’s Day Parade. Will the parade be a success under the looming threat of Leprechauns? Perhaps with the help of Shamrock Green-Duffy, famed leprechaun hunter and daughter of Boondocks Saints director, Troy Duffy. And if that doesn’t work, summoning the spirit of Saint Patrick surely will.

Join the fun Sunday at 7pm at the Maryland Ensemble Theatre!

This Weekend on The Last Hurrah (and a Recap of the Past Month)

FootballPoster

On January 31st at 8 p.m. the Maryland Ensemble Theatre (MET) will present The Last Hurrah’s “Everything You Need To Know About The Big Game”. The Last Hurrah cannot clarify which “Big Game” it’s talking about, due to the NFL’s legal crackdown, but you can probably guess. Join a panel of comedians as they check for deflated balls, blow millions on big-budget commercials and prove once and for all which team is the best. It’s the best way to enjoy the big game, prior to spending a night yelling at a television while enjoying the big game.

In the past, nearly 100% of Last Hurrahs have occurred on a Sunday, but we knew people wouldn’t show when we went up against the Big Game (you literally can’t drop SB in any form of advertisement) so we were fortunate enough to snag a Saturday night spot! If you live in Frederick, MD come join the fun live!

ResolutionsPoster

This week, Kevin returned to The Last Hurrah to find out who how everyone’s resolutions had been going. Joined by Bobby Martin, James McGarvey and Christine McQuaid they discovered that most of them had resolved to be less of a jerk to one another. They then turned their attention to Bobby who would be fleeing for Ireland in matter of days. What could a man who claimed not to have a single resolution do with his life? I guess you’ll have to listen to find out.
