Memorable Shows

  • A "Film School" Harold in which every scene was a student's film project.
  • A "Time Table" Harold in which every scene started and ended according to a strict schedule. It was discovered that this schedule was being kept by Brian Barrett's super-agent character "Saul Murray" and his personal assistant.
  • Bastian's first Cagematch victory over The Stepfathers in which John Murray arrived with only minutes left to re-enact a scene from "Ghost" and kiss Brian Barrett on the mouth.
  • A Harold that was a play set in a prison, performed by actor's in a community theater group. The third beats/Third Act was a Musical.
  • A Harold following the stories behind three violent crime scenes. In the third beats, different performers played the parts in overly dramatic re-enactments of the previous scenes.
