Cheap comedy for WSB’ers, and other Admiral events

Didn’t know about this till it landed in our inbox but we of course have no choice but to let you know: Admiral Theater boss Steve Garrett admiral.jpgis offering WSB readers a discount at this Friday night’s comedy performance by Dante (from “Last Comic Standing“) — according to Steve, “Tickets are normally $15 in advance, $20 at the door, but we are extending this to West Seattle Blog viewers: Come into the theater before the show and mention that you saw it on the blog and receive comedy tickets for only $10.” Also mentioned in the latest Admiral bulletin, this Saturday night’s the monthly “Rocky Horror Picture Show” extravaganza, and next Wednesday night @ 7, the 75th anniversary showing of “Duck Soup,” which Steve says “will be introduced by Frank Ferrante, world-class Groucho impersonator.” (Dante’s show Friday is at 10 pm, according to the Admiral website; you can find out more about him on his MySpace site, which includes clips.)

    FYI – According to the Admiral Website, Dante’s show starts at 10:00 PM, not 8.

    Thanks – when we posted this yesterday the Admiral website hadn’t been updated so we had no choice but to look for other info sources. WIll update.

    “Duck Soup”?!

    Rufus T. Firefly!

    “I could dance with you until the cows come home. On second thought, I’d rather dance with the cows till you come home.”

    “This is a gala day for you.”
    “Well, a gal a day is enough for me. I don’t think I could handle any more.”

    “To war! To war!”

    “Remember, you’re fighting for this woman’s honor, which is probably more than she ever did.”

    And with the one, the only Frank Ferrante? —

    Bliss and “Hail Freedonia!” Yep, I’m a long-time, bone-deep Marxist through and through.

    Thank you, Steve!

    I remember years ago, probably close to 20, the Admiral Pub was TR Garritys and they had comedy shows every Sunday night. My best friend and I made it to almost every show. It was a great way to end the weekend.

    What a great use of the theatre. I wonder if people would go if there were regular shows? There are plenty of good watering holes and resaurants around to support the before and after crowds.

Sorry, comment time is over.
