TSOYA Classics: Live in New York, Part 2 (December 1st, 2006)

This week's classic episode brings us part two of The Sound of Young America's first live on-stage show, recorded at The People's Improv Theater in New York City. You can find part one here. The show opens with a bang with comedy by Andres du Bouchet, who takes all the freshly-made bloodsuckers in the audience through New Vampire Orientation. If you aren't a vampire yet, bookmark this page so you can come back when you do need to be orientated on vampirism. New York sketch group Elephant Larry follows with more laughs, and then Jonathan Coulton sings songs. Also funny.

And finally, Jesse interviews novelist and journalist Kurt Andersen, host of PRI's Studio 360. They discuss Andersen's run at Spy Magazine, which he co-founded in 1986.

Thanks for going back in time with us today. Hope you enjoy the show.

Coulton Cruise!


I was in New York last week, and stopped into Jonathan Coulton's beautiful Brooklyn apartment for a visit with the Coulton family. I was excited to hear about all the cool stuff that's been added to the Jonathan Coulton Cruise, including Peter Sagal and a couple of our pals from Rifftrax. You can check out the full itinerary for the cruise, which sets off in January, here.

The Jonathan Coulton Cruise!


Jonathan Coulton has been a loyal friend of He's appeared three times on The Sound of Young America, once on Jordan, Jesse, Go! and has performed at both MaxFunCons. Now he's headlining his very own Caribbean Cruise!

The cruise sets off January 2nd from Fort Lauderdale, and features four concerts, including our pals Mike Phirman, Paul & Storm, John Hodgman, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett. I bet it will be a f*ing blast, so if you're the type who's always up for cruising (did that maybe come out wrong?) book your berth now.
