Dear Diary,

 

Last night I volunteered to be part of a project that Late Night at the Plaza was filming.  I am afraid there is no going back to regular life now.  I must continue down this clearly insane path.  There were people dressed as cats...and bats and people running around in their underpants!  I found myself in an old lady wig and cowboy hat...and then hula hooping on the street while drunken people wandering out of bars in Kensington stared at me.  Long gone are the days where I would be the one staring at the drunken people.  Tell my parents I love them, but I must continue down this spiral into madness for there is only one place that I want to be, nay only one place you will have a hope in finding me, LATE NIGHT AT THE PLAZA.

 

Yours always,

 

Lydia Ad...

Some people have asked me what it takes to pull this whole thing together, so I've decided to give y'all a Wednesday in the life.

Please note that I've already filmed 2 skits: 5 supremely-hungover-and-fun hours on one - "The Revenant 2 Trailer," and another 4 fun hours on the other - "The Stalker," and written 5 jokes in the previous days leading up to the show (Scouring Canadian News (So You Don't Have To) takes an hour or so out of each day sitting at Tim Hortons to look through CBC.ca and theherald.ca for possible punchlines, plus an entire evening dedicated to "writers room" a Monday night which usually procures the skeleton of a punchline or two through the consumption of alcohol and good times (and bad times).

Below is a timeline of my life in chronol...

When you are part of a comedy show, you would think that making others laugh comes easily. Nope. That is a hard no. In fact, you really have to work hard for it. There has been many a times when the audience is at a stand still of complete awkwardness with out even a willingness to provide a pity laugh, but we push through.

 

Now, what the real secret is, is being part of the show without ever to really having to make people laugh—lets be serious, we are all hilarious, but not all of us want to go on stage and be judged about it. Amiright. I have been a volunteer for the show for over a year now and I blend right in with the comedians, can’t you tell?

 

After observing how funny people act for such an enormous amount of time, I can safely say I am an expert. So here are some tips about h...

It’s no secret that Calgary is the epicentre of people tripping and falling in western Canada. Our unique weather patterns and frequent Chinook winds foster conditions that allow water to freeze, melt, and then freeze once more, creating ice as smooth as glass- ideal for those who wish to sightsee and travel in this horrific environment we call home. Our slick walkways invite the adventurous traveller to get their own first hand experience and often reward them with concussions, bruised bones, and a healthy reality check.

With our rich tradition of being in constant suffering during the winter months, it’s easy to take it all for granted, but with warmer weather on the way, we should enjoy our environment to its fullest before the end of the season.

I still remember the first night I went to Late Night at the Plaza. It was the end of August, 2014 and my girlfriend Allison told me I had to come to this show just a couple blocks away from my house. It didn't start until midnight (which in itself had me skeptical) but her friend's son was playing in the band, so apparently it was actually a thing. Before I went out to meet Allison for drinks, I spent almost a half an hour scouring the internet looking for any information about whatever I had gotten myself into and was SHOCKED there was nothing. I mean, I'm a communications student. The idea that something wouldn't have even a Facebook event did not compute. We showed up slightly intoxicated to a minimal crowd, not realizing that this in fact would be...

HELLO VIETNAM!

This is our first blog post. I think.. maybe someone else wrote one. I don’t know. Anyway last weeks episode was fucking insane. Seriously. Beautifully bizarre. We were missing our wonderful production manager and had a few technical difficulties so there were glitches . A.K.A the video exporting 30 seconds before it was supposed to play and I had to yell out of the projection booth STALL!!! But it was amazing. And in a weird way I am glad those things happened because it was hilarious.

As always Logan, Kyle and Mike nailed it. I missed the Canadiana but watched it back after and it was funking hilarious. We did an entrance where Logan came out as the exorcisist and did a dance routine to “Better Off Alone” by Deejay Alice, at which point his back up aerobic dancers joine...

Hello and welcome friends, crew, guests and fans. This is our new Late Night at The Plaza website. Our goal here is to create an online environment that will keep all of our friends and fans up to date on everything Late Night. We will have a calander constantly changing and evolving to keep you as up to date as humanly possible. We will have links to all the photos and videos we have taken over the year(s). We also want to have more information available about past guests, and more information about our partners, volunteers and sponsors. Now, this isn't going to happen over night but we have an amazing team full of very talented and dedicated people and I'll be darned if people don't know who they are. 

Stay tuned for blog posts by members of our team and an ever growing novel...
