Erin. I believe you may have gotten City Weekly's "Best of" confused with the SLAMMys. It's possible there was some controversy with the "Best of" as well, but the big one I remember was the SLAMMys. As of the last SLAMMys (2004), improv is still on the ballots. If improv is not listed in the "Best of" anymore (and I'm not sure it ever was) I believe it is because City Weekly now devotes its "Best of" issue to dining and dancing, and focuses the SLAMMys on arts and entertainment.

Eb. It's JoKyR and Jesster.

Ironic to see such mistakes in a thread dealing with a reporter's failure to verify facts before putting them in print. wink

fyi...
the author is printing corrections to the original story in tomorrow's Tribune... just spreading some gossip I have heard. I am afraid to say anything else, as I have had burritos thrown at my car all day.

Sorry Joe, I realized my mistake after I posted, but I figured every one would know who I was talking about.

Wow... it's been a long time since I've been on. I guess it took another good drama to bring this old grizzly out of hibernation.

A lot has been said about "The Truth". Well, I'll give my two cents on what I know. As I read the article I can only see two places that might be the reason for so much animosity.

One is the "longest running improv troupe" thing. I really don't know what to say about that. I never used that phrase to the reporter. But, has there been a Quick Wits show in the Salt Lake area since 1994? Yes. OBT ran it while I was in Clearfield and the same night that they dropped the name I had a show in the city. Are the actors the same? No. Are the same Yankees still playing for the ball team as they did when the team formed? No. Are they not the Yankees? Well, yes.

I really don't have an answer for that one. Many of the Laughing Stock members have been there since the beginning so they have a good claim to having the most veteren performers. But on a given night Quick Wits might have the whole stage full of 6 year vets and that just might balance out the two 10+ year vets and the two 2 year vets on the OBT stage.

But does it really mattter? No. Once again, I never told the reporter anything. He did say that we haad it easier because of our name and I agreed. The name Quick Wits was something I fought for because it means a great deal to me, and because it stands for something.

The other thing in the article that I can see is how he describes the break up. I can only say that I told the reporter that the ownership was going through some tough times. I told him that we were all best friends who were now no longer best friends but we had a prettty amicible split. No, I didn't say I was "voted" out (which Ben and Eric did). But there is a long story to that and I thought that the article should be about the positive side of things improv-wise and left it at "we made a decsion to split and I started up a new troupe". It also doesn't say that OBT had free use of the name Quick Wits for as long as they wanted and decided after a while to drop it. It also doesn't say that Ben was an owner as well... but he seems to have taken it well.

The "truth" is that I talked to the reporter for about an hour (Ben gave him my number so I didn't get to him first). And I talked up Utah improv because of how proud I am of the work we're doing. I told him that Eric and Russ are probably still the best on stage I've ever worked with and that I miss doing shows with them, but I hold out hope that it will happen again. I told him how much I love doing improv because of the great friendship you feel on stage. Ironic.

I noticed the word "adapt" is there about Quick Wits and that had to do with the way our show is adapting at present. We are adding stand up, sketch, and filmed bits to try and mix it up. I can only assume that's where he got that from...

I'll continue.

I just wanted to express my sadness for the obvious thoughts that some have had about the article and the jabs that have been taken because of it.

Obviously I deserve everything said because of the way I've been in the past. I can only say that I'm sorry.

I've made many mistakes in my life. Mistakes that are costing me much more than any of you will ever fully know.

But I guess my past makes me an easy target and that's another thing I'll have to live with. But honestly, is the words of a reporter really worth this much?

And "The Truth", I'm very impressed that you found a poster for "Let's Murder Marsha". Yes, that was one of my biggest mistakes. I've paid a lot for my plagerism and will continue to do so, not so much by other people (until now), but by myself. I live with my mistake everyday. And while I'm very impressed that you found the thing, I can't help but wonder about someone hiding behind the name "the Truth" who wants to hurt without showing themselves.

Anyway... as for the article, I thought it was good for just about everybody. Utah has a great improv tradition and I'm very proud to have my little place in it... I'm also sad for the tarnish I've added in the past.

There's a song by Reliant K called "Who I am hates who I've been"... I feel like that and all I can do is try to improve and move on.

So take your shots... it really doesn't matter anymore.

What should matter is keeping Utah Improv strong.

Take Care,
Bob Bedore

Reading this whole message board has tossed me into a whirlwind of emotions. I love and hate you all.

Bob, kudos. Nothing you've done has spoiled the high regard I have for you. You've always been a significant inspiration to me and my career of improv ever since you started doing it. More then you may know.

Ebby, I don't think you're gay. I think you're cool, and I had a blast playing with Off the Cuff awhile back.

“The Truth”, go back to anti-tobacco advertising.

Juan, I don’t know who you are, but you’re funny.

Seriously Ben, joo are prolly cool, but I have sworn an allegience to kill everyone but me and my brothers... all 16 of them. But seriously if we were like beating joo down, I would be like, hey joo guys, this guy is prolly cool, and they would like tell joo to get an extra 15 second head start to run away, but then we would beat joo down anyway like really hard.
Oh jes, I just read joor post and joo said that Eb guy was cool, so I have to kill joo now too. And that Bob post - could he get a little longer winded? Jeez louise, man! I don't read English that well, so I am like...whatever, dude!

The True Awesome history Of Utah Improv

By Jhorjay Menendez

Ok you guys all prance around like PBS fairies and talk about “History”. Everyone wants to tell there side of the fence; well let me tell you… I built the fence its made of 13 foot concrete brick, with barbed wire, red hot guard ladies, and atomic dogs, my fence is the foundation of Utah Improv, and if you don’t agree, my end will be on display for biting!!!!

It all started when my super hot parents made sweet love!!!! KABOOM!!!!! They tragically died. I was instantaneously born to take names and kick butts. I invented Improv comedy at the sweet age of 17 after I killed a man for looking at me sideways. The cops where like, Jhorjay did you lay this dude out in a totally nuclear fashion. My dormant and hibernating Improv skills went into full grizzly mode and I was like “No this guy killed himself for looking at me sideways, he committed a suicide not with a gun, or a train, but with a fully loaded Jhorjay!!! The cops where like “carry on citizen” and thus Improv was born.
No offence to the Bedoars, Jensen’s and porters, but there clams to having the longest running improv troops are totally unfounded and a worth less than a super sized flaming pile of fly crap…and you can totally take offence at that. I’ve been improving for eight million years!!!!!! That’s right you heard me. I improve all the time; I’m making this stuff up right now. As to the infamous break up at the OBT…It was caused by vampires. Now the facts are all out in the open.

Jhorjay (the million dollar baby) Menendez

Juan my crazy Brother I hope you die sweet someday, like undeneith a pile of chicks. untill that day, lets drink beers

Jhorjay, I am glad jou finally decided to set the record straight. All this whining crap was making the fire of furiosity build in my anger-glands, until I was just about ready to beat the unliving crap out of the empty space where jou were not posting. Fortunately, now my rage can be reserved for people that are not abstract concepts.

As always, my totally kickin' ninja sword is your's to command. Long live the Bambitos Brudderhood!!

At present in the world, the concrete as the most widely used, the largest amount of a building material, study the characteristics and properties of concrete can be more convenient application of concrete, give full play to the advantages of concrete. To make concrete better serve the coordinated development of human services and the environment, and further promote the concrete scientific and technological progress, in order to continue to explore the development approach and technological innovation to lay the foundation, we must master the strength of concrete, workability, durability and other aspects of strength performance. Concrete technology has entered the era of high-tech, increasing varieties, applications continue to expand, structural design methods are constantly improving. However, the specification is the structural design of the technical documents in the structural design plays an important guiding role, reflecting a country and regional technological and economic development level. Advanced technology, safe application, economic rationality, durability is to develop the basic principles of structural design specifications, the world are so. China and the United States and Europe, has a different social and historical background, so the concrete structure design methods and norms of development has gone through different processes.Double Steel Roller - Road Machinery Equipment Manufacturers - Doan Machinery
