Waiting For Guffman

For some reason as a teenager I was convinced to be a part of a play shown at The Torrance Community Theater. The first time I saw Waiting For Guffman, all those traumatic memories of community theater came roaring back: the bad dialogue, the cheap props and the egos of the lifer community theater players. I saw Guffman on tour when it came out back in 1997 at a movie theater in Portland. It was one of those theaters that served beer. Everyone in my band at the time hated the movie. I of course, because of my traumatic experience with the Torrance Community Theater,  loved it.

Last night IFC showed it twice and I saw it twice. Too funny. Here are some of my favorite parts, courtesy of Youtube:
