CHICAGO, IL – Robot vs. Dinosaur proudly presents their new show, Are You There God? It’s Me, Satan. Times are tough everywhere, even in Hell. With Hell crippled by overcrowding, thanks in part to the Internet, Satan may be forced to make a rash decision. But when push comes to shove, will Satan sell out?

Follow along as a father and son journey past demons, sinners and a three-headed puppy on a tour of the past, present and future of Hell led by none other than Satan himself.

Opening just in time for the Halloween weekend, Are You There God? It’s Me, Satan weaves together short comic scenes with compelling narrative to create a funny and playfully irreverent theatrical experience that will leave audiences laughing.

Are You There God? It’s Me, Satan is performed by Neil Arsenty, Kim Boler, Lisa Burton, Jill Fenstermaker, Tim Heurlin, Ryan McDermott, Nat Topping and Trish Vignola and is directed by Geoff Crump.

Robot vs. Dinosaur is Mike Bauman, Geoff Crump, Joe Janes, Joe Linstroth, Chris Othic, Nat Topping and Greg Wendling.

((Even though my name sneaks in there at the end, I haven't had much to do with this show other than pop in from time-to-time and throw my slight weight around. I sat in on a rehearsal two weeks ago and these guys and gals are in great shape. It's hysterical. Well cast. I can't wait to see the show on Halloween.))


Yesterday, I asked...

"Wayne Forrester says he killed his wife with a meat cleaver because she provoked him by doing what?"

No one said "having an affair with their marriage counselor," "telling their children he was gay," or even "bringing a date to their divorce hearing"

100% got it right with "changing her Facebook status to single"

According to The Daily Mail UK, Wayne Forrester, 34, London, drank alcohol and took cocaine before driving 15 miles to the family home to attack wife Emma as she lay in bed.

The couple had separated four days before the murder in February and Forrester later told police he had been provoked by his wife changing her marital status to "single" on her Facebook entry, the court heard.

Forrester drove to Croydon armed with the knife and meat cleaver and forced the front door open. After neighbours called 999 he emerged from the house covered in blood and holding a carton of juice.

Yikes. Gruesome horrible stuff. But let's look at the real culprit in all this. To hell with the alcohol and cocaine. Facebook is the real drug at work here. I am new to Facebook. I am hooked. It might take someone with a meat cleaver to get me away from my laptop and go to work.
