2 Hour Ford Commercial

Did anyone watch the 2 hour Ford commercial tonight on NBC? They called it "Knight Rider." I don't think I've seen product placement like this since....well, last week on Biggest Loser. Anyway, I have to say I have enjoyed some of the classic shows I grew up with coming back to primetime. For instance, American Gladiators. Let's face it - that's just good TV. Watching school teachers and average joe's getting pumbled by massive athlete's that have taken so many steriods their fingers alone are stronger than the average man. But Hulk Hogan as a host? I don't know about that. I think at 55 years old it's time to cut the blonde hair off and hang up the handkerchief from his head. But I guess it makes sense why he tries to look so tough and rugged - his real name is Terry Gene Bollea. Okay, so maybe it's not great TV but it's fun to mindlessly watch when you have nothing better to do.

I'm just curious what's next - what other TV shows from my childhood will be brought back? Maybe they'll bring back the cast of Different Strokes for an updated series (you know, the ones who aren't in prison). Gary Coleman's a definite possiblity - he's always looking for work. Plus he hasn't really aged in 25 years so he's got that going for him. And William Shatner...I bet he really misses hosting Rescue 911. Must be why he sold out to doing commercials.
Ultimately, most of the shows should just stay locked in the vault. You know the ones I'm talking about: Hee-Haw, Golden Girls, Silver Spoons, Punky Brewster and most definitely Roseanne (yeah, I'm not even going to provide a link for this one). Actually, if we could just lock her in a vault just to cover our bases that might be good.

Stick Horses in Pants feature web video

As many of you know, I'm a professional Colorado real estate agent during the day and local improv actor by night. My improv group, Stick Horses in Pants, continues to grow and expand in the Colorado Springs area. Recently, we were interviewed, photographed, and filmed by the Gazette Newspaper in Colorado Springs. They followed us to numerous performances and practices to understand the full scope of what we do....and to write a feature story about us which will be featured in the GO! Entertainment section of the newspaper on Friday, February 15th! We're excited to have the exposure to help us advertise our monthly improv shows, performed at Colorado Springs School's Louisa Performing Arts Theater. If you'd ever like to attend a show, we'd love to see you the 4th Saturday of every month. We're also available as entertainment for special occassions, humor for any size parties, company dinners and corporate events, or any group that would enjoy family-friendly comedy improv.

Please check out our video on and read the article published in the Gazette on 2/15/08 for a small sample of what we do and then come to a show and enjoy it as an audience member. You can even purchase your tickets for Stick Horses in Pants online!
