Radio comedy troupe serves up laughs
Posted September 14, 2007
You might think the folks at Right Between the Ears are getting a little sad that President Bush's time in office is starting to wind down. After all, he's provided a lot of fodder for the radio comedy troupe. But the group has high hopes that the next guy - or gal - will provide just as many gaffes as Bush. Right Between the Ears is back at it again Saturday night, with shows at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. at Liberty Hall, 642 Mass. In this week's Pulse Podcast, writer/producer Darrell Brogdon and cast member Kip Niven talk about their creative process, the group's new independence from Kansas Public Radio and the introduction of special guest star Jayni Carey of "Jayni's Kitchen" to this season's show. After that, hear about some of the other events going on in Lawrence this weekend in our weekly Best Bets feature.
