Director's Commentary at UCB

This was easily the funniest thing I've seen in months. At UCB last night, they showed an afterschool special called "Francesca Baby" from 1976 featuring an alcoholic mother, a distant father and a daughter who's left to take care of the household. Three UCB guys on mics provided DVD-like commentary: one guy was the grown-up Francesca actress (and did not put on a female voice), one guy was the writer, one guy was the director. I nearly pissed on myself. They had that quiet-I'm-on-mic-doing-DVD-commentary voice down pat.

Funniest line ever:
"Having an alcoholic mother is like having a retarded little brother. They're always embarrassing you."

That alone was well worth the $5 admission fee.
