Oh friends and fans of getting your whistles wet while enjoying great live entertainment, do I have a treat for you! Bye Bye Liver, the Drinking Play is coming to Nashville for an extended run in 2012.

Written and produced by a crew of MTSU theater alums and launched in Chicago by "The Pub Theater," this audience-interactive, somewhat improvisational and always hilarious sketch comedy show explores “the pitfalls and follies we’ve all experienced while enjoying a night out on the town.” In other words, it’s a play about trying to get lucky when hitting the bars and every possible embarrassing moment that goes along with that and the audience is encouraged to booze it up right along with the actors through a series of interactive drinking games. 

The show has been so popular in Chicago since it’s inception in 2006, that it is second only to renowned comedy group Second City in sold out shows and audience attendance and it has since spread to six other cities including MIlwaukee, Twin Cities, St. Louis, Toronto and Philadelphia. Nashville marks the seventh city on Bye Bye Liver’s list. 

I caught the show in Chicago two years ago and was laughing from start to finish along with the rest of the packed house. 

And what’s even more exciting is that now you have a chance to be a regular part of the show. Bye Bye Liver: the Nashville drinking play is holding an open casting call for actors and comedians on Tuesday, December 6 from 7p.m. to 10p.m. at the East Nashville Performing Artists Co-Op. No prepared material is required and auditions will be held in one-hour time slots.
