52 Dates a Year

Having fun together!

Brave New Workshop: Brett Favre’s Christmas Spectacular – The Immaculate Interception January 15, 2010

For Robyn’s birthday (way back in September!) we decided to give her two tickets to see a show at Brave New Workshop. After some discussion we decided to see the Christmas show but unfortunately were not able to fit it into our schedule prior to the new year. So…Saturday, January 9, 2010 Robyn and Josh joined us for dinner at Green Mill (where you get a 25% discount on food when you show your BNW ticket for that day) and then we caught the late night show.

This year’s Christmas Show was really, really funny. They opened the show with a rap song about the Vikings and Brett Favre and besides one other mention, that was it for Mr. Favre. I think some of the favorites included “The 12 Days of Christmas” sung as My Mother Said to Me and My Father Said to Me in place of “My Truelove Gave to Me”, an attempt at videoconferencing with the parents and a couple skits that included a Santa suit!

We also stuck around for the post-show Improv session which proved to be pretty funny as well! Overall, a very good night filled with quite a few laughs.

Chris’s Review
Dinner with Nikki’s brother and girlfriend was great, and the timing worked out great to make it to the show. We all laughed out loud, and had a great time.

Best Part:Hearing all 4 of us laugh out loud! Sketch comedy is great when it is on, and they did a great job on the Christmas show.

Worst Part:Somewhat expensive… we did plan on a Saturday night, and I know sometimes there can be deals on the weekday shows (join the insider club). The 25% off food at Green Mill helped.

This is a great night for any couple that is just starting to date, or have been dating for a while. I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone that gets offended easily. Some of the skits are pretty political, so it may create some conversation after watching. RATING: 4/5

Nikki’s Review
We had been waiting to go to this show for so long that I was worried it might disappoint, but thankfully it didn’t! I guess my memory isn’t great because I didn’t remember most of the skits, but that’s okay!

Best part of the night: The two different versions of the 12 days of Christmas were hilarious and easily my favorite part of the show.

Worst part of the night: We were hoping to get a table in the bar at Green Mill to watch the Wild game but a) the bar was completely full and b) only the Cowboys/Eagles football game was on.

BNW puts on a few different shows each year and all the ones I’ve seen have been funny. The only drawback is that the tickets aren’t cheap, but for a night of good laughs it’s worth splurging every once in a while! RATING: 4/5
