The Lemon-Lime Time Miscellany Hour Live Why Not
With Ryan Withers
24 March - 18 April
Ryan Withers is a confused young man. Confused because he doesn’t seem to be confident on the format of his own show. The Lemon-Lime Time Miscellany Hour Live Why Not appears to be a parody of a late night talk show on first glance. Staples of the format such as the opening monologue, audience quiz segment, guest interview, and zany sketch are all apparent. But these segments far outlast the humour contained in them – resulting in a confused audience and host second guessing his own material live on stage (which actually does generate laughs). While Withers show doesn’t cross “it’s so bad it’s good” territory, a tighter shorter show would make for a better experience.
