Thrills! Suspense! Cocktails! Tonight!

A couple of weeks back, a fellow blogger and I accepted the gracious invitation of loyal reader Yosi to check out a show he is producing, “The Thrilling Adventure & Supernatural Suspense Hour.” The show describes itself as “a staged production in the style of old time radio,” and it has a cast of amazingly talented actors that kept making me snarf up my bourbon. The show includes episodes of the shows Sparks, Nevada: Marshall on Mars, Hollywood Creature Noir, and (my personal favorite) The Supernatural Suspense of Beyond Belief, featuring a husband and wife team of sleuths who donĂ­t even stop to put their drinks down while they investigate the shadowy unknown. There were also comedic interludes from the show’s authors Acker and Blacker, of course played by two actors who were neither Acker nor Blacker. And did I mention there was quippage? Oh, the quippage.

So tonight, grab a cocktail and your best dame and hoof it down to the M Bar for the next exciting installment of “The Thrilling Adventure & Supernatural Suspense Hour”. More info at

  1. Live radio theatre is about as rare in LA as live musical accompaniment to a classic movie; so if you’re looking for something more enjoyable and certainly more memorable than a delusional Scientologist evading CGI explosions and alien tentacles on screen, “The Thrilling Adventure & Supernatural Suspense Hour” is the best ticket in town tonight. I believe the M Bar can fire up a pretty mean pizza if you’re hungry for more than some good comedy tonight. Damnit, now I’m hungry.

  2. I’ve been to M Bar’s Comedy Death Ray a bunch of times (a sometimes hit-and-miss but often hilarious repository for Mr. Show alums and other “alternative” comedians), and now I’m going to have to check this thing out too. Plus I hear Paul F. Tompkins will be part of the show, and he is hee-larious!

  3. My husband and I checked out “The Thrilling Adventure & Supernatural Suspense Hour” a few weeks back, not really knowing what to expect, and left glad for having tried something new.

    The M Bar is tucked away in a strip mall and doesn’t look like much from the outside. Inside, however, it is something else. Dark, red, cozy…romantic even.

    Dinner was good, especially the mixed greens salad…we sat upfront though, right under the air conditioning vent and practically in the spot light…so if you get chilled easily and are shy like me…pick a spot towards the back…the sight lines seem great from anywhere in the room.

    The story that night was witty and engaging…the actors were fantastic and the musical guest was mind-blowingly talented.

    All and all, it was a great night of out of the ordinary entertainment and we look forward to sneaking another night out so we can see what Sparks Nevada, and those crazy sophisticate sleuths are up to now!

  4. I listened to the mp3 of the show on the website, and it sucked. That was the most boring thing I’ve ever heard.
