Comedy On The Request Line: Lost Moon Radio

on Friday, Apr. 13th

Opinions expressed in Game of Buzz are those of the author alone.

I make no excuses for loving Lost Moon Radio and their brand of “dry comedy, wet rock & roll”. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the two years I’ve lived in LA, it’s that I’ll always have fun at a Lost Moon show.

Which makes next week’s experiment at King King in Hollywood all the more interesting.

The Lost Moonies are opened up a request line and let the fans pick out which bits they’re hear at the show from the possible set list. It’s the kind of gag that makes perfect sense given the show’s radio-style format. With the collective coming off the buzz from hosting LA Weekly’s Annual Theater Awards earlier this month I’m expecting the troop to be at the top of their game.

The only downside right now is that the request line is closed. The deadline for getting in a request was March 31st. I had one or two I’d like to hear again, and just have to hope someone out there shares my sense of humor.

The Lost Moon All-Request Hour has two shows this coming Wednesday at 7:30 and 9:30 at King King, 6555 Hollywood Blvd, LA.
