The Annual Live (ep. 1) NOW ONLINE!

The Annual Live took the Maryland Ensemble stage earlier this month and it is now ready to be viewed in it’s entirety!

Join The Annual Live as co-host Karli Cole decides it’s time to call it quits, move to Italy and take up with the Vatican, leaving her brother and remaining co-host Kevin Cole and the rest of The Annual staff to give her a fitting send off. Meanwhile the fate of The Annual Live hangs in balance as studio execs debate how well the show will hold its own without her. It’s a final farewell that brings forth the cross between The Larry Sanders Show and Sonny and Cher that no one asked for! So look forward to sketches, musical performances, and a special appearance from the Laugh Station crew!

The Maryland Ensemble Theatre  is proud to present another installment of the surreal, blood soaked, beer drenched, sci-fi horror extravaganza that is the Laugh Station series. The deranged exploits of the Laugh Station crew continue in Episode Seven: Flux!After failing to raise enough money to pay back Federation Creditors, the intrepid comedy explorers decide to bend the fourth dimension so that things turn out their way. Little do they realize the irreversible side effects of time travel, let alone the knife-wielding alien stalker who’s hot on their trail. Only the wise/insane, old Time Master holds the key to their survival… now, if they could just sober up in time for curtain call! The surreal, mind-altering, sci-fi/comedy series returns this summer, with a special guest appearance from DC-based comedian, Mikael Johnson! If you enjoy breast milk, Sylvia Plath, telethons, schpace schnapps, The BodyguardWWF and/or cannabis smoking robots, then this one is for you!

The Laugh Station series is written and directed by Matt Lee and  co-written with Jack Colliver, both of which are staff writers here at The Annual. The show also features Annual staff members Lisa Burl, Kevin Cole, Courtney McLaughlin and James McGarvey performing alongside Brian Artusio, Joe Colliver, Joe Jalette, Mikael Johnson, Trevor Marin,  and Bailey Sterling.  All original music is by Joe Colliver, Mak Kennedy and Trevor Marin.

Maryland Ensemble Theatre will present Laugh Station: Flux as part of its MET-X series, created to expand the collective horizons of the MET ensemble and its audience. Performances are July 26 & 27 at 9pm at Maryland Ensemble Theatre (31 W Patrick St. Frederick) located in the historic FSK Hotel.  Tickets are $11.50 (includes all ticketing fees) and may be purchased by phone at (301) 694-4744, online at marylandensemble.org, or in person at the MET box office. Laugh Station: Flux is intended for mature audiences only.

For those who received The Annual #3 you may be aware of this, but those who aren’t should gleefully mark their calendars in anticipation for The Annual LIVE! The show will take place at the Maryland Ensemble Theatre in Frederick, MD on July 5 & 6 at 8pm (tickets are $10 plus a 1.50 surcharge). Here’s the rundown…

After years of co-hosting the popular variety show The Annual Live, Karli Cole has decided it’s time to call it quits, move to Italy and take up with the Vatican. As a result, it’s up to remaining co-host Kevin Cole and the rest of The Annual Staff to give her a fitting send off as the fate of The Annual Live hangs in balance. It’s a final farewell that brings forth the cross between The Larry Sanders Show and Sonny and Cher that no one asked for! So look forward to sketches, musical performances, and a special appearance from the Laugh Station crew!

Copies of The Annual Issue 4 will be available as well, featuring our exclusive interview with Colin Mochrie!
