*The story behind Greatest Hits:
Do you like Blogologues? If so, we GOT YA COVERED! Nothing but the best sketches from 2 years worth of shows, or in layman’s terms, 12 shows! If you haven’t been to a show yet, then this is the perfect time to get your comedy feet wet and slippery.
Many people have asked us why we’re finally getting back together to perform our greatest hits after so many years apart. Truthfully, a lot of us dug ourselves into a deep financial hole and just need a paycheck. Who knew child support could cost more than our collective addiction to cocaine?!! Most of us have sobered up enough to get back into performance shape, others have allowed themselves to simply change shape. Shorter, fatter shape, uglier shape… (I’m lookin’ at you Richard Simmons). Truthfully this show has become a new beacon of hope for us all. A reason to live, and make some new healthy life choices for the first time in pretty much ever. So come one, come all and COME ON!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOO!

This Mother’s Day, let’s take a moment to appreciate how your mom’s accidental wit is funnier than you will ever be on purpose. It’s Tweet of the Week #4!
And some other tweets we Vined this week!
It’s Hump Day, Livelies! We wanted to remind you to send yo momma a card/gift/someecard for Mother’s Day this Sunday! Here are a few good gift ideas and loving sentiments for your heartfelt Mother’s Day cards.
Yo Momma is so cool…
Or at least she used to be before she had you. Check out this blog about how awesome people (your mom before she had you) can turn into lame peeps (your mom after pushing you out).
Since you pretty much caused the destruction of your mother’s social life, it only seems fair that you get her a gift that she really needs this year. Check out this SNL sketch from 2012 for a scintillating idea or two from Amazon.
In this day and age, we needn’t honor only our mom on Mother’s day: we have step-moms, half-moms, grandmas, nanas and many more strong women that deserve some love. Here is a Huffington Post article highlighting the top 15 someecards for Mother’s Day.
For a “hands on” type of mom, get her this wonderful gift. Just add batteries and let her enjoy…what?! No…it’s not a… just click on the picture and find out:)
If you’re still not sure what she would want, you can never go wrong with tickets to the theater. Hey…how about the next Blogologues LIVE show?! GREAT IDEA!
Here we are in our 3rd week of Time Out New York’s Tweet of the Week! Last week, New York City sorely missed the throngs of seamen that typically populate our very own dry land during Fleet Week. If you missed the memo, Fleet Week was canceled thanks to the Department of Defense. Olive Oyl did, in fact, miss the memo — and bemoans her hard-work-for-nothing in this week’s vid. Check it out!
And a few more gems we filmed this week:
Happy Hump Day, Livelies! It’s the first of May and you know what that means… swimsuit weather is right around the corner! It’s time to bust out your best beach bod diet and get ready for outdoor fun in the sun.
First of May: Diets and “Outdoor F#@%kin’ Starts Today”
Here’s the perfect #TBT, even if it is only Wednesday:

Many thanks to Julia Kaganskiy and the rest of the ArtsTech team for including Blogologues as a featured presentation!

Y’all ready for this?!
The ArtsTech Unconference is a seriously rad event happening this Saturday 4/27 at the AOL Headquarters in NYC… and Blogologues is a featured session!
The day will bring together a slew of incredible arts-and-tech-bent creators and voyeurs, who will explore the influence of technology on art, consumers and audiences, and examine how we can best target users. Just blew your mind, right?
Other presenters we are dying to see (READ ON! READ ON!):
Blogologues will, of course, discuss the ways technology is morphing theater, and we’re going to hash out how artists can use technology to better engage their audiences, rather than eschewing tech altogether. And we’ll be doing a 15 minute performance of highlights from our shows!
Check out ArtsTech’s tumblr to see each very awesome, featured session! You shan’t leave uninformed. It’s going to be an amazing day so get your tickets here stat! We BEST see you there!
Technology & People…What’s the deal? Well…let’s all figure it out at #ArtsTech!
Hello, ladies and gents! As you may have heard, we’re doing this new awesome thing with Time Out New York called Tweet of the Week. You can read about it here. Basically, every week, we’re filming a few funny tweets about New York and sending them over to TONY, who then features THE WINNER on their site and blasts it around and stuff like that. So, prepare thyselves for the first Tweet of the Week, brought to you by Blogologues & Time Out New York!
Check it out on TONY’s website here.
Guess what’s next week, Livelies? Wait, really? You can’t figure it out from the title of the post, “We love Mother Earth”? Wow. Okay. Well, here we go: Monday is Earth Day! OMG! We are so excited! We love Mother Earth! She is one hot mama. So, without further ado:
Earth Day Round-up!
Sometimes it’s hard to figure out what we can do to make a difference for our planet. Here’s a video from “The Office” to help us remember to recycle on Earth Day.
Don’t just tweet the talk: Go above and beyond like this dude! (BTW what is happening here? Does anyone know?)
Check out this video of NYC locals being interviewed about Earth Day, Mother Nature and what the best medicine for planet Earth is.
