Happy Halloween from The Living Room!

Trick or treat! Smell our feet. Give us something good to read! Here you go, kiddies. We asked NYC's finest comics to dress in costume and help us celebrate our third annual Halloween Scare-avaganza! Look who dropped in!

Host of Honor Barry Rothbart introduced the following lineup:
Charlie Kasov
Ben Kissell
Hasan McLendon
Luke Thayer
and a sketch by Delusions of Spandex

With special guest appearances by Michelle Obama and High School Musical's Corbin Bleu!

Abbi Crutchfield and Luke Thayer
Abbi and Luke welcomed viewers to the forty-seventh show with lots of candy and then revealed their costumes to each other. Abbi pulled out two Emmy's to show she was Kathy Griffin, and Luke celebrated as a Puerto-Rican hair stylist.

Barry Rothbart
Barry Rothbart starred as not only our host but as a Wall Street stock broker who took the news of the economy harder and harder as the night went on (and as his nose got powdery-er).

Charlie Kasov
Charlie Kasov returned to the show to warn spectators of the scams run in exotic clubs.

Abbi Crutchfield as Michelle Obama
A candid and celebratory Michelle Obama lost her composure several times while dissecting McCain's latest gaffes. Patience, Michelle!

Ben Kissell
Making his debut on the show, Ben Kissell wove a tale of made of funny jokes and references to underpants.

Hasan McLendon
Marking his second appearance on the show, Hasan came back to tell it like it is.

Abbi Crutchfield as Corbin Bleu
Holy Disney sequels! High School Musical 3 had its premier the night of our show, and to celebrate and announce other stars making headlines, the Living Room welcomed Corbin "don't call me Cordon" Bleu!

Luke Thayer
Luke Thayer dazzled the audience with his dark curls and large set list on tiny stool.

Phaea Crede of Delusions of Spandex
Becca Jones of Delusions of Spandex
Hello? Who is this? It's not a scene from Scary Movie, but it is a tale of revenge. It's another hilarious sketch by Delusions of Spandex to close the show.

Winner!  Hasan McLendon
The Hat of Chance selected Hasan as the Funniest Comedian of All Time! This ghastly collage with no eyebrows is sure to give him nightmares.

Party till it ain't October no more, then be thankful for all the hairs on your head at our Thanksgiving Special on November 14th! Only show for the entire month of November!
