The Last Hurrah’s First Ever Comedy Open Mic Night!

The Last Hurrah is furthering its efforts to cultivate local comedy by hosting their first Monthly Comedy Open Mic Night. On the last Sunday of every month, The Last Hurrah will open their doors to anyone from stand up comics, to sketch performers and improv teams looking to get some practice in front of an audience. Performers will be given 5-10 minutes of time in the Maryland Ensemble Theatre’s Stage 2 space, and as always The Last Hurrah is absolutely free to attend.

Tomorrow on The Last Hurrah!

This Sunday August 23, 2015 at 7pm, The Last Hurrah is going back to school! Join your host Kevin Cole and a panel of comedians as they lean into grade school nostalgia. Everything from fire drills to government subsidized school lunches will be provided. It’s all of the school with none of the work or education, just free comedy and one last chance to pick on the new kid (that’s a major no-no, don’t pick on the new kid unless you want ten demerits).

Episode written by: Lisa Burl, Kevin Cole, Caitlyn Joy, James McGarvey and Christine McQuaid

Balls Deep(er(er)) Relationship Advice

This week on The Last Hurrah, we’re joined by Lisa Burl (one half of the creative team behind Balls Deep(er) in Love) and a slightly drugged Christine McQuaid. Together we discussed bad break ups, help some audience member settle their love trouble and even reached into the depths craigslist to help some Frederick locals find love, whether or not they came to the show. We also said goodbye to a dear gallbladder, who will be sorely missed (until the drugs kick in).

Deaf Awakening goes to Broadway with Joshua Castille

On this very special episode of The Last Hurrah, we sat down with delightful Joshua Castille who is currently making the leap from Deaf West’s production of Spring Awakening to Broadway! We learned about his origin story of discovering theatre via a shower curtain and how he and Christine McQuaid became fast friends. We discuss what goes into making a production of Spring Awakening that’s accessible to both the hearing and the deaf and just how tight the show’s ensemble must be to pull it off.

TLH – 25 Year Reunion Special

This weekend’s Last Hurrah is now available online, download it and subscribe to the show via iTunes.

It’s been 25 years since the cast and crew of The Last Hurrah gathered at the Maryland Ensemble Theatre (MET), okay, maybe it’s only been two weeks but it feels like 25 years. With (emotional) years of behind-the-scenes spats behind them, the original cast of “The Last Hurrah” will reunite. They’ll look back on how things have changed since their last show, pay respects to deceased cast members, feature some stand-up comedy and make a little boy’s wish to relive the movie Space Jam come true. Sure, the show’s writers acknowledge that it’s awfully sentimental to host a reunion of this magnitude with only two weeks between shows, but why complain when you could be enjoying some free comedy?

TW: We talk about dolphin rape for a chunk of this episode, so be warned.

No Hurrah this weekend/Kirby Delauter’s Fan Fiction

Following recent comments made by Kirby Delauter we uncovered his hidden stash of Frederick County Council Fan Fiction.

In the interest of local politics, Jan Gardner’s executive order was placed against Blaine Young, not Kirby Delauter. 

The Last Hurrah will return on June 6th, but perhaps the video above will help hold you over while we develop our non-stop run of summer shows!
