Founded in December 2013 by comedians Brett Davis and Sally Burtnick, The Macaulay Culkin Show has absolutely nothing to do with Mac. It does, however, have everything to do with showcasing fantastic comedians once a month for just five bucks. Last month, $5 got viewers a night of fun with an SNL writer, a cast member from Girl Code, and other champs of stage and webseries.
This month they have something extra special cooked up. Back in 2014 they invited Jon Glaser to be on the show but he couldn’t participate; Davis said he’d be happy to have Glaser on “whenever possible, forever.” Glaser replied in the only logical way with “only if you write me a screenplay called ‘Whenever Possible Forever.'”
Of course, Davis wrote the screenplay. It’s coming to life this Sunday at 7 p.m. at Shea Stadium in the form of a staged reading starring Glaser and friends Joe Rumrill, Julio Torres and more. WPF’s Facebook page calls it a “terrible accidental screenplay,” and Burtnick billed it as “a heart-wrenching, post-apocalyptic thriller” that we’d “smack ourselves” for missing.
Save yourself the self-harm and go see Jon Glaser fulfill his bizarre comedy promise.
