Everything is Terrible! Legends Tour at Will’s Pub

20150224_220108

What do Jerry Maguire, fire safety PSAs, and sexually suggestive children’s shows all have in common?  Nothing.  But the gang at Everything is Terrible! figured out how to make them work together to help the audience at Will’s Pub take charge of their own destiny and climb to the top of the EIT Pyramid.

Everything is Terrible! is a website dedicated to scraping the bottom of the barrel for lost and forgotten VHS tapes, ripping them apart, and stitching them back together again in wonderfully insane ways.  They’re currently traveling the country with their Legends Tour which is advertised as a “Best of” show of their first seven years.  But for this tour they’ve mixed it up even more and turned it into a Choose Your Own Adventure style show, letting the audience dictate what they see next.

The show opened with our hosts telling the audience that they’re about to climb the  EIT pyramid on their path to enlightenment.  After we finish watching each new video mash-up, our masked hosts proclaim that we’ve climbed one more level.  They presented us with choices, like “Kids or Animals” or “Sex or Violence” and we’d get to see whichever option got the most reaction. At one level they asked us to either pray for one choice or tweet at them for the other.

For the first level our audience chose “Kids” and the selection was a mixture of forgotten children’s shows, horrifying mascots, and cheesy PSAs.  One highlight was an anti-bullying ad from the 90’s where the bully gets run over by a car while Sarah McLachlan’s “Angel” plays over it.  When we selected the “Sex” category, our video featured things like abstinence PSAs, a man demonstrating a penis pump, and Sinbad dressed as a condom.

Everything is Terrible! is one of the weirdest things I’ve ever experienced.  And while I had a blast, it certainly isn’t for everyone.  One moment you’ll be laughing hysterically, next you’ll be getting fuel for your nightmares, and then finally you’ll end up questioning what you’re doing with your life.  But by the end of the show it won’t matter because you’ll have made it to the top of the EIT Pyramid!

Uncomfortable Brunch at Will’s Pub

On the first Sunday of every month Will’s Pub hosts a brunch club that is not for the faint of heart.

Uncomfortable Brunch takes a lovely Sunday morning activity (brunch) and adds a hard to watch, usually explicit, but important film to watch and discuss. Past movies have included: Man Bites Dog, Happiness, and Blue Valentine.

Joshua Martin and a few friends inadvertently created the event after blueberry pancakes, mimosas, and Nagisa Oshima’s very disturbing classic “Realm of the Sensesin.”  Recently the brunch happenings outgrew Martin’s apartment and has now taken up new residence at Will’s Pub on Mills Ave.

This Sunday (3/1) will feature: chorizo sausage gravy & biscuits, local honey & assorted preserves, baked egg frittatas, whole fresh fruit, and a side of, the always violent, Gaspar Noe’s film, “Enter the Void.”

For more information and for the upcoming movies you can check out their website.

Tonight Show Writers Seth Herzog & Luke Cunningham Rock Wills Pub!

Early this morning a something happened at Will’s Pub. Wonder Woman came to town. So did Gladys Knight and her judgmental Pips.

OR… 

A late night comedic treat from comedians Seth Herzog and Luke Cunningham, introduced by our own local Orlando Indie Comedy Fest funny guy, Nick Pupo. Luke and Seth are in town for their boss’s thing. Some [legendary] television program called  The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. In case you hadn’t heard, the production is taping at Universal Studios Resort this week! Just in time for the opening of Diagon Alley

Or both. (You had to be there.)

The line for Will’s Pub went literally down the block (as seen through Google Glass below)

 

Luke was AMAZED at Orlando’s burgeoning Hipster Community! Williamsburg, NY’s big beards and Buddy Holly frames, meet Mills 50’s stylish flannel and tight pants!

 

Seth is a handsome Wonder Woman, can lip sync for his life AND loves Orlando but is creeped out by Celebration…
