Volcanoes! Oil Spills! Earthquakes!  Floods! Tea Parties! The Jersey Shore!  Disaster certainly struck in 2010.  What does it all mean?  What should we do?  If only someone would intervene and let us know just what needs doing, like Moses did! 

Continuing a Skybox tradition, now in its fifth year, *Creepy Hug presents its eleventh original sketch comedy revue, The 2010 Commandments: The Year in Revue.  The comedy team that formed in 2003 will help usher in new commandments as we usher out this past year.  But don’t worry, those first ten that Moses originally brought down still apply, so you only have 2,000 new commandments to remember!  Also, they should be downloadable to your iPad, or other PC tablet, as long as Moses can get decent reception on Mt. Sinai.  › Continue reading

If you haven’t heard of TBOX, I’d be surprised.  But now that I’m going to tell you about it, this is all you’ll be hearing about.  A coworker of mine had a 3-word description of it, “A Hot Mess”.  For the uninitiated,  here’s all you need to know: Cereal, stickers, costumes, thousands and thousands of people (over 7,000 last year!) and drinking. Lots and lots of drinking.  This epic pub crawl starts at 8am at the Cubby Bear in Wrigleyville and goes till the bars close.  Yeah.  That’s one hell of a day.  So get some friends together, find a costume, pick up some cereal from the grocery store and buy your tickets online at www.tbox2010.com.  Read on for more details! › Continue reading
