Today I went to see 'The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee' which was AMAZINGLY FUNNY!

I was a guest speller and was wondering if anyone else has had to opportunity to be a guest speller, if so what was your word/words and insult/insults?

My friend got called up and got out on "Chloroform", he got described as "being part of an 80's tribute band...as Rick Astley" because of his hairstyle xD

Rona also said that she and him share hairdressers! :P

Saw it tonight, started off well but to be honest I was bored after an hour. The main humour seemed to come from the guest speakers and after they had left the stage it seemed to drag. Dont get me wrong, laughed alot, and there is much to enjoy, but again all in the first hour.

Nice show, glad a I saw it, but wouldnt see it again. Brilliant set design!

I kind of agree. The place where I think it does drag a little is "The I Love You Song". Cut that song and it would be perfect.

Did anything special happen tonight?

Not that I am aware of, finished ontime and nothing seemed out of the ordinary. Some great guest spellers tonight, especially the two guys.

I really really loved it! The second time I saw it, this poor Japanese guy was a speller, in bright blue trousers. They noted that he always wears his lucky Justin Bieber wig when spelling, and that he won his school's competition for best Gok Wan look-a-like.

I saw it with ClapYoHands for the first time, very funny that our friend was a speller. Also, the Charlie Sheen jokes that were added weren't there the first time I saw it. Topical, I thought they were a great touch. I wish there was some way this could transfer or tour or something, I really thought it was a fab production of an amazing show.
