Puppets and Dad’s Garage

This morning for the first time I witnessed the humor and insanity that is Dad’s Garage. I went with my wife and daughter to the birthday party of a little girl in my daughter’s daycare to see Uncle Grampa’s Hoo-Dilly Storytime, a mix of fairytales, puppetry and audience participation. The show was a little bit more for the adults in the audience and the performers onstage than the kids, but that was fine by me. Bonus points for featuring Atlanta’s acting man about town, Lucky Yates whom you probably recognize from his appearances on Good Eats or 96 Rock. Funny stuff.

Now I’ve had friends and co-workers involved with Dad’s Garage before, but I had never been to a show there. Small, cavernous, poorly ventilated and most likely always filled with laughter. It seemed like the kind of place built on improvisational comedy and the love and dedication of a core group of performers. I’ll definitely find a reason to go again.

And I’d love to go tonight to see the Late Night Puppet Slam. It fits in nicely with my blog nom de plume, Mostly Muppet, plus I’d love to see the Yates puppetry again.

In any event, Dad’s Garage == good. Go and laugh.

That is all (enjoy the rest of your weekend).

    I’ve never been disappointed by the improv shows at Dad’s Garage. I tried another improv show in Buckhead once and was very disappointed.

    I’ve yet to go to any of their other shows, but I will make a point to check one out soon.
