Regarding Last Night’s Last Hurrah

As advertised and mentioned on the show, last night was the last Last Hurrah of 2016. Two years ago we interviewed a ghost, albeit, that ghost was Andrew Michaels in a sheet, last night we interviewed a real one (depending on whether or not you trust ouija boards).

A lot has changed since we started the show in 2014. Many familiar faces have come and gone, but one thing remained about the same and that was our audience size. Hard as we tried, it was generally difficult to break double digits, which is fine when you’re starting a show but after 93 weeks, a lack of audience growth can be a little taxing. While talking to our new Managing Director at the Maryland Ensemble Theatre, I asked her about how we could grow our audience and she suggested that perhaps we did the show too much. Her recommendation: do The Last Hurrah on the last Sunday of every month, rather than every Sunday. This would be the biggest change to the show since Thom Huenger joined the show as band leader, and I was almost immediately game to change the schedule for following reasons:

  1. I had personally grown a little tired, the show didn’t feel that fresh for me anymore. There were times when I would think about the lack of audience growth and consider ending the show entirely or perhaps finding a new host to take over week after week. I love what we had created but there was a part of it that had begun to stagnate.
  2. As a result of stagnation, booking was had become the last thing on my mind, most shows featured the same batch of people based on who was in town at the time. By changing the format, we could set aside one day on our schedules, book multiple guests, possibly bigger guests and up the variety of guests and what we do with them.
  3. As far as content goes, there are a lot of elements to the show we always wanted to try but never had the chance to throw together. By performing a month-to-month basis we take more time to develop material for the show, sketches, games, all kinds of things to make the show more enjoyable.
  4. The chance to really restructure the show and find our voice. The Last Hurrah has steadily evolved over the years. If you listen to our first couple of episode and pick out some episodes from this past summer, you’ll hear a very different show. In this next 14 weeks, we hope to do some reformatting, solidifying certain elements of the show and perhaps cutting others altogether.

In taking two months off from The Hurrah and cutting back, we hope to provide you the viewer/listener with a more solid product. Something immensely funnier and, with any luck, unmissable. Tomorrow, I hope you will greatly enjoy our Ouija Board episode and that you’ll come back to join us on January 29th for a fresh new Hurrah.

This week on The Last Hurrah: ACTUALLY Saying Goodbye to Nicky Costanza

DON’T MISS Free Comedy at the Maryland Ensemble Theatre this Sunday at 7pm

Last week’s Hurrah was greeted with a very light crowd of old friends, so we took the select few who came out to dinner. It simply would not have been a fitting farewell for one of New Jersey’s greatest comics, Nicky Costanza. For a couple of bucks we talked him into staying in Frederick for one more weekend. So come on out to The Last Hurrah as say goodbye to this great comedian/ice cream reviewer on Sunday August 28th at 7pm.

Tried in an international court? We’ll look at really happened that day, move over Dan Brown because the newest champions of historical fiction have come to town!
