I’ll Write Now

Sunday night at seven? That means it’s time for The Monty Ashley Show! What are Monty and his friends doing for New Year’s Eve? And isn’t it a bit late for that? Feuding aunts, wacky neighbors, an announcer entirely too entranced by gelatin, and a lot of mistaken identities later, will we ever find out how the cream gets in the cow? Don’t count on it. And is that really the band you hired? Good thing they work cheap. Steve is not in this one, but Chris is hair. Also, where the hell is David, and how is your mattress anyway?
