Designated Drunkard: A Comedy Drinking GameSaturday, July 7, 7 p.m.The Comedy RoomRoomFittingly for a show dedicated to boozy overindulgence, Designated Drunkard forgot its own anniversary and has subsequently never gotten around to celebrating a year of rib-tickling and liver-pickling comedy drinking games. On Thursday, July 12, Alexander will be joined by local standups Charlie McMullen, Mo Vida and Anthony Crawford for a cavalcade of chuckles to cap off a week’s worth of shows in our state, including a headlining engagement at Loonies in Colorado Springs. A finalist on the 2010 season of Last Comic Standing, Wood first rose to prominence on radio thanks to his facility with the lost art of prank phone calls before going on to appear on shows like Sullivan & Son, Conan and The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon and releasing his first one-hour special Father Figure, on Netflix. Recently named the new host of Comedy Central’s storytelling show This Is Not Happening, Wood’s ascendant career means locals shouldn’t miss this opportunity to see him in a comedy-club setting. Be sure to check the Arts & Culture section next week for Westword’s interview with Roy Wood Jr.

John Cleese caught talking about ‘marijuana caravans’ live on GMB

Monty Python actor John Cleese was caught in the act on live TV this morning. It all unfolded during John’s interview with hosts Charlotte Hawkins and Ben Shephard, who tried to start their segment but the actor was completely unaware they had returned from the advert break and were live on-air. John completely missed the cue and is heard saying: ‘There’s this extraordinary caravan which is powered almost entirely by marijuana or something. In the midst of uneasy laughter, Ben joked: ‘That’s how we should start an interview at all times. Realising what had happened, John suddenly broke into an awkward smile and swivelled around in his chair, almost like a school kid who’d been caught talking about something naughty. 

Seriously, we need to know more about those marijuana caravans, John. Reacting to John’s gaffe, a viewer tweeted: ‘You need your own whole show interview – 5 minutes wasn’t nearly enough. The trio managed to gloss over the awkward moment but not for long as the comedian later launched into a tirade about his plans to leave the ‘corrupt’ UK. Not holding back, John ranted: ‘I’m going to buzz off in November because I’m fed up of the corruption in this country. ‘In particular, with just how awful the newspapers are and the way they censor news so people in England don’t know certain things, particularly anything critical of them. ‘I don’t think you can run a democracy until you have reasonably reliable information out there to help people make up their mind how they’re going to vote. MORE: John Cleese is leaving the UK in November because he’s ‘fed up of corruption and awful newspapers’.
