Wow!  Look at that.  It’s a thing of beauty.  Irresistable.  I love Jameson.

The only thing better than having Robert W.C. Kennedy bare-chested on your stage is having Robert W.C. Kennedy bare-chested on your stage accompanied by Chris Klopatek in his underwear.

It was a big show.

Randy Rehberg wrote this play about A Chimney Sweep Backstage at the Oscars.  That’s Ken Williams as the Chimney Sweep.

And the cast was rounded out by Amie Losi.  Ta-da!

More pictures from Combat 8.  Here’s Patrick Holland as Pauly Shore.  Jim Thibodeau’s pairing was Clint Eastwood in a Relay Race which turned into something of a celbrity roast.

John Maclay and Tami Rentmeester were featured in this play written by Steven Midthun.  His pairing was Public Access TV on a Chicken Ranch.

There’s Ken Williams making his first appearance in Combat, not as a performer, but as a volunteer from the audience.  The lesson to be learned here is that everything is an audition.  Either that or never, ever volunteer.
