Default Going to a taping tonight .. what to expect?

I did a forum search, but the 'live experience' thread is 3 years old.

Anyone go to the taping a couple days ago? or even in the past year?
advice on how early to go.. what to expect.. etc.

I'm going to the 830p taping.

There are a few people around here that have been to tapings, so hopefully they can offer some tips.

For the most part, we like to see how the show went for you. What sketches you saw, what they were, etc.

Live MADtv Taping 1/27/06

I was at the MADtv live taping on Friday!

12/10 Taping Details - SPOILERS!

JeffJeff went to the first taping this season, his experience is here. None of these threads contain advice though, and by the time you read this, you'll probably be back from the taping.

just got back. got there way too early for the 830 show, so they let us into the first showing at 430.. which ended up starting at 6pm and running until 9pm.

the warm up guy is pretty funny, walking on the seats over people, carassing men's faces while singing to them.

it was fun.. although the 'fantastic giveaways' that i read about were more along the lines of candy and chips thrown into the crowd.. and a select few got dvds and shirts.

michael mcdonald messes with bums and plays a foreign overly hygenic waiter, bobby lee hams it up for the crowd, playing a filipino whore in one skit, and jordan does a BET music video.

we were invited to stay for the 9p showing, but staying around until midnight is pretty rough for me being jetlagged and all.

tonight's taping airs september 30th.

I could go into more detail about the sketches, but i dont know how the forum does with spoilers and whatnot.

Default Spoilers. LONG.

alrighty
pre-apology: i havent watched mad tv in a while, so i dont know character names.. sorry.
opened up with some pretaped clips.. michael mcdonald character goes around exposing bums as fakes.

MM rolls up and rolls down the window...
(SIGN: I'm a Veteran)
"so what war were you in?"
"what, huh? i dont know"
"GOTCHA.. ya fake! hahaha"

another bum
(Will work for food)
"i'll cook you a turkey dinner if you put a new roof on my house"
"what? listen man i'm hungry."
"GOTCHA... haha GOTCHA"

(something about children.. dont remember)
"you don't have children.. show me a picture"
"wait, see.. here's my daughter"
"that came with the wallet"
"I'm in the picture!"
"you photoshopped that"
"I don't have no access to photoshop!"
".. uh hahaha gotcha!" (Rolls up windows really fast and drives away)


----

next clip is a BET video..
JP is singing to a lady about how it's been a long week and they havent spent any time together.. so now it's time for them to have a romantic night and chill..
...watching him play Madden 06.

----

clips about some ugly office chick who gets picked on.
she opens a fortune cookie that tells her her inner princess is coming out.
when that happens she floats up in the air, glowing.. only to be set down, and still ugly again. the girl next to her becomes pretty. "What the HELL?!"

happens 3 times.. and finally she becomes pretty.
but gets a baboon's ass.

----

So the opening monologue begins with Bobby Lee who invites a special guest out, John Cena. John Cena and BL were supposedly in a movie that's to be out oin October, the Marine..

He explains to BL that some of the scenes were cut because,
"well frankly, you scared the crap out of everyone.. "
"which scenes?"
"some of them.. but by some of theam I mean all of them."
"but fortunately, I have those scenes tonight to show to everyone."
"cant you just put them back into the movie?"

more banter.. they get into a fight, culminating with john cena slapping the **** out of BL.. good lord that guy gets a lot of physical abuse. you can see it in the bright red welts shaped like Cena's hand and busted capilaries on his chest..

----

live skit about 3 ladies from new york who are visiting fort lauderdale.
running gag about being a whore. not much to say as it wasnt that funny.
some convo about waxing balls, was changed to waxing sacks.

----

live skit about a couple going to a restaurant and witness MM character, Keiko the waiter, coughing on some knives.
"this man was coughing on my knives."
"oh Keiko? he's from a remote island untouched by germs.
his saliva is so potent and sterile, he's reason we're
the only restaurant with an A+ rating."

Keiko approaches unhappy customers, licking their glasses, shoveling spaghetti into take away boxes with his mouth, shoving a man's hands in his mouth to 'wash' them, ultimately ending the skit with keiko vomiting on a characters feet.. to clean them.

----

Lastly.. the BL cut scenes. takes place in Philippines and he plays a filipino whore who falls in love with an american soldier, John Cena. very Miss Saigon.

Im not sure which direction they'll take it since there were a lot of cuts and pick-ups.. and BL improving his lines with:
"for $7, i give you massage, cut, shampoo.. for 10 i give you blowjob and ipod nano"

anyway ends with John Cena coming back 3 years later.
BL: "A lot has changed. Im married. I have a son, John Jr."
(filipino midget comes out in muscle suit)
JC: "listen, I still love you.. let's have sex in the kitchen."
(they emerge from kitchen)
JC: i dont know where you learned all that.. but wow.
BL: there's something i have to tell you.. I'm a man.
JC: WHAT. but we just had SEX back there.. you have a son!
BL: I pull it waaaaay back.. and things like that just happen in the
Philippines.

more banter. a fight. and BL gets thrown out the window. JC takes his child and walks out. BL emerges "oh well.. ping pong anyone?"
(running earlier gag where he can shoot ping pong balls out of his crotch.)

Hmm.. i think that's it. They shoved us out the studio really fast to make room for the next audience.

Thanks for all those sketch detail! I'm a sucker for spoilers, so it's great to see what's coming up, even if it doesn't sound that good.

you're welcome.. although i'm generally bad at recounting things.

I thought the Keiko sketch was pretty funny until the end. I dont know which ending they chose to go with though, it was shot a couple times.

I liked the BET sketch too, but probably because I had an ex who was that guy who'd come home from work only to play video games.
