Dynasty Dygest: May 6th


Helloooo you darling May-vens!

How the heck are you?! We’re well n’ swell and ready for another week of hot happenings here at your favorite Popcorn Restaurant. But before we hop into the upcoming week, we love to take a moment to PastBask™. What can we bask in from last week? LOTS! We had an epic May Day Dynasty Tonight with a great lineup including a NICK KROLL pop-in and a thumbskin-less and medicated JOEL KIM BOOSTER. (For any wondering, he’s just as funny without his thumb skin and on meds as he is otherwise.) We had not one but TWO nights of cabaret queen CATHERINE COHEN’s sold-out show, and honestly the vision of her in the sequined jumpsuit was worth price of admission, and the show itself was… priceless. SATURDAY afternoon we hosted what was truly our best GO DAY yet, and we’ve loved all of them so that’s really saying something! On top of being a v. talented hunk, BARON VAUGHN is a wealth of introspective knowledge! BRENT FORRESTER is an unstoppable force made of goodness, comedy, and work ethic. LAURA HOUSE makes meditation accessible and funny! And JAMIE SULLIVAN inspired everyone by reminding us that you have to embrace woh you truly are to walk the path to your own personal greatness (and your plans and your path are not to be confused!) We truly love Go Days, and if you haven’t come, please consider attending next month. It’s free, it’s exciting, it’s a great reminder of the joy and potential our lives all have. And we’re taking allllll those good vibes and vibrating right into this week!

TONIGHT! Like improv? Like podcasts? Like DAVID KOECHNER (Anchorman, amidst many other credits!)?! Well then we have the triple threat (if those first things are threats) made to defeat the doldrums of a typical Tuesday night… it’s Alchemy This! Alchemy this is KEVIN POLLAK’S podcast baby featuring CRAIG CACKOWSKI, JOEY GREER, CHRIS ALVARADO, JAMES HEANEY and VANESSA RAGLAND. Come listen to them make stuff up! And watch them too! Wow, what a treat for the senses. Or at the very least, what an experience for the senses. WEDNESDAY we’re excited to have BOBCAT GOLDTHWAIT’s benefit show for HELEN CRIMMINS (widow of BARRY CRIMMINS who is bravely battling cancer.) Bobcat’s lineup includes DEMETRI MARTIN, AMY MILLER, CAITLIN GILL, RHEA BUTCHER, and more so it’s like, the best way to do something nice ever.

THURSDAY we welcome neuroscientist (wow!), philosopher (wa-wow!). and best-selling author (wow-wow wee wow!) SAM HARRIS to the Dynasty for a sold-out live town hall! We have a feeling watching this event is going to make us smarter and deeper, so next week’s newsletter will probably have a different tone and timbre all together. Welp, we’ve enjoyed our reign in the DumDum Kingdum. See ya in smart town, suckassss! 

FRIDAY we’ve got TWO reasons to TG (thank goodness)! First up it’s Off Book LIVE! Earwolfs magical improvised musical podcast with the unstoppable duo of impossibly sweet sweeties, ZACH REINO and JESS MCKENNA! They’re as quick and talented as they are lovely, and watching them create a musical live is MAGIC. Then, we welcome the west coast debut of The Bongo Hour! New York (very coooooool) performers PETER SMITH and SANDY HONIG are bringing their wild variety show to the bosom of the Dynasty, and said bosom is quivering in excited anticipation. With delights including JOHN EARLYBANG BANG LUNABEN MOSS and our fav BOB BAKER MARIONETTES, it’s a show not to be missed. So don’t miss it! 

SATURDAY we offer you another love letter in show form with DYNASTY TONIGHT, our in-house produced show featuring our favorite favorites. This week we’ve got OPEN MIKE EAGLE! JACKIE KASHIAN! PUNKIE JOHNSON! Magic from TAYLOR HUGHES and surprise special guests! Join us! 

SUNDAY is Mother’s Day! So, right after you finish the newsletter & secure all your Dynasty tickets, MAKE SURE you’ve got something nice lined up for your mom(s) and or mother figures! Sunday night, it’s Feel Better with SHENG WANG at 7pm. Sheng is hilarious and we can’t wait to see his hour! Luckily, we don’t have to wait long. Afterwards, we’re doing an RSVP-only free showing of that Dragonny Show that everyone’s been buzzing about for years. RSVP! Wear costumes! Drink mead! 

In other news, this weekend Vanessa saw a bubble mime, Irish wolf hound, and falcon at the Renaissance Pleasure Faire and it was heaven! Jamie saw redwoods, a rogue bagpipe player, and a psychotic bird in Half Moon Bay and THAT was heaven! But really, both of those trips only gave us each more inspiration on ways to improve our heaven here in town, Dynasty. Come on down, ye beautiful angels! Ye lords n’ ladies! Ye folks of all creeds! Let us make our own paradise and romp in it freely! 

Pearly gates, Golden gates, n' The Ivy gates of Dynasty,

Jamie & Vanessa
