I also had Jim Faro on the show. He is one of the creators of "Blood Manor," one of those scary houses that's filled with actors who jump out and terrify you. I went to one of those when I was a teenager and I screamed like a crazy person the whole time. He said that often there'll be a macho guy forcing his girlfriend to come with him into the house. She'll be begging to not have to do it, but the guy will laugh and insist. Then Jim will watch them both on the video monitor and within minutes he'll see the guy hiding in back of the girl. I'm dying to see the video feed and deconstruct it! He also told me that he has a deal telling customers that if they lose control of their bladder, they get a free t-shirt. Seriously. And every day he gives out at least three free "I P*ssed Myself at Blood Manor" shirts. Wonderful? You can see video footage here.
During "Sandy," James and I watched many episodes of "Homeland" because we had only watched half the first season. So, now we're finally about to start Season Two. It's so good! Hopefully the airports will re-open soon because I'm looking forward to taking a break in Orange County at the end of next week and doing my show at the Rose Center on Friday, Nov. 9 (for tix go here). Before I go, though, I'm doing a big benefit on Broadway for Only Make Believe. That's on Nov. 5, hosted by Sir Ian McKellan. Find info at onlymakebelieve.org.
While you're waiting for the subway to start up again, watch my recent "Playbill Obsessed!" video with Benjamin Schrader from The Book of Mormon below. Meanwhile, I'll spend my time frantically trying to find out whether my mother's neighborhood is flooded, and if it has power. I'm not saying I want her out of my apartment as soon as possible, I'm just saying… Hm. Don't have the energy to make something up. Peace out and stay dry!
