International Women's Day!!

Happy International Women's Day!  We hope that you are all celebrating the international women in your life (if you don't have any, just be thankful for Alanis Morrisette, Shania Twain, Maria Sharapova, Shakira, and Giselle Bundchen).  One quarter of Think Tank has been lamenting the end of Peyton Manning's career in Indy, one quarter has been celebrating the end of Peyton Manning's career in Indy, one quarter has been lost in the Big East Tournament, and the last quarter is Peter.

We're still rocking and rolling as a unit, too.  We made our debut at Chicago Underground Comedy, Chicago's premiere standup comedy showcase, opening for the venerable and brilliant Adam Burke.  Chad Briggs hosted with some brilliant new hand job material, we did our thing for 20 minutes, then Burke went off on an 80 minute set that left us saying "Oh my God..." over and over again.  It was a room on fire, and he murdered it.

We just found out that we did not make the finalist list of the NYTVF (tear), but that's ok, it was our first run at it, and we're going to do nothing but get better.  As for this month, we have Pistol Party on March 13th at the Underground Lounge, and just in case you missed Adam's set last month, he'll be hosting this month's Pistol! (Although no 80min set this time, there's a show after us, and we gotta get ours too!)  The theme this month is a "St. Partridge Day Celebration," in honor of St. Patrick's older, lesser known brother who hated the color green, was quite opposed to drinking, loved snakes, and preferred mashed onions to mashed potatoes.  Should be a silly one for sure: Underground Lounge, Tuesday March 13th at 8pm.

Here's a parting shot for you.  Even if you've seen the Macho Man video we made last year, go back and watch it again, then read the ridiculous amount of hate comments people have left on it.  It's quite hilarious how much people hate it!  If you giggle, go ahead and give it a like to help counteract all of that evil.
