ANNOUNCING: The AP (Annual Podcasts)

After years of providing literary laughs, The Annual is proud to announce their newest venture: The AP (Annual Podcasts) – Podcasts not associated with the Associated Press. From this point on, you will be able to find our incredible backlog of print humor right hear on TheAnnualOnline.com but we are changing our focus to podcasts.

Why are we getting out of the print game? For one, many of our writers have been snatched up by big name outlets like Cafe, National Lampoon, The Haven and The Weekly Humorist. Meanwhile, at our homebase in Frederick, MD we’ve shifted focus to more audible concepts. So if you head over to AnnualPodcasts.com  you’ll find the home of some of your new favorite shows. From our monthly live show The Last Hurrah to our newest podcast Now Available on Video Cassette. Give these great shows a listen and join us as we create new favorites for you to enjoy every week!

One Man, Two Guvnors

That’s right, no Last Hurrah this Sunday. We’ll be out of town, but you can still catch this door-slamming farce at the MET in our absence.

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.
