Exclusive Review of The Nightman Cometh, An Always Sunny in Philadelphia Production

September 25, 2009

As you know, we here at wwwwY are on top of everything hip, hot and new.  Today we have an exclusive for you.  We are lucky to have a guest writer today writing all the way from San Francisco.  See because he is in S.F. he is automatically credible in anything he writes.  Right?

Anyways, our guest writer today is a Mr. Ian Godsey who had the absolutle pleasure to see The Nightman Cometh in San Francisco last night.  If you don’t know what it is, you don’t watch the funniest show on TV.  “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s season finale last year was a show about a play that one of the characters wrote. In lieu of this season starting, they made an actual production out of it.  Danny Devito was there, live performing on stage.

So without further adue, here is your exclusive wwwwY review of The Nightman Cometh reviewed by Ian Godsey:

It's Always Sunny in Philadephia's Production of The Nightman Cometh

It's Always Sunny in Philadephia's Production of The Nightman Cometh

It was a fight to the death for the sacred prize of the boy’s hole… The live showing of The Night Man Cometh came to a sold out show in the Masonic Center in San Francisco. Based on an episode of the underground hit “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia” The play is written, and written is a loose term when referring to the writer, by Charlie Kelly, due to him being hilariously illiterate.

The show itself is basically a reenactment of the season finale episode of the same name. Where Charlie writes the play with unknown intentions and gets the rest of the gang to star in it; which is obviously a bad idea. The play is suppose to be about the battle for a child’s soul (Dennis) as the Nightman (Mac) Must pay the troll (Danny Devito who looks even shorter in real life) his toll, so he can get to the boy’s soul (which sounds exactly like boy’s hole). Then there is child rape, karate, heavy drinking, cat eyes, freak outs, more child rape, singing, dancing, and some more heavy drinking to boot.  All hilariously offensive humor… It was great.

To end the show, hate to break it you; but even with Charlie rocking an all yellow suit top hat and cane dancing and singing an all new tune… The waitress sitting in the crowd still says no.

Which inevitably the crowd boos her for, but I personally like my Charlie the alcoholic, glue huffing loser, the way he is.

The best part of the show was the crowd. There were several green men in the crowd. A couple people rocking the duster, and 2 brothers dressed up as the McPoyles, They must bang each other too or something. It was like seeing a whole new episode with 4,000 of your closet friend and everyone is hammered.

They also showed a whole new episode “The Gang Starts A Rivalry” which they challenge a former rival 10 years ago, for the flip cup contest “Flipadelphia” Also they showed a preview for their Christmas special, and all I can say is it involves Santa, mom sex, a lot of blood and child abuse all in the name of Christmas. I think it will easily replace a Christmas Story as my go to holiday must see.

From the worse than middle school stage set, to the crowd knowing every word of the songs, it was an epic night of drunken proportions and we can only hope that somewhere inside that possibly retarded brain of Charlie’s he is thinking of another script.

If you are lucky enough to have it come to your town… Go see it

I give it 9 Huffs of Glue out of 10
