"Family Guy Live" is hitting LA on 4/15 and NYC on 4/29 & 4/30. I've been waiting for this to hit New York since Seth MacFarlane alluded to it in an interview a while back. This played at the Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal last year. It inlcudes a live script reading (with pretty much the entire cast), a live performance from the upcoming Family Guy comedy album, a sneak peek at the season premiere, and a Q&A.
The presale (which lasts until next Friday) password is FREAKINSWEET (just like that, all caps).
The shrimp joke was going a long way for a punchline that was...eh. The self-referential jokes about the cutaways was probably the best part of the episode. I thought the plot had promise, but they didn't really follow through.
