Pilotcopilot's State of the Union Address

(A hush falls over the crowd as a young man wearing corduroy trousers approaches the podium. He appears nervous. He wears glasses)

Uh, Hello, uh, Lucas Myers was supposed to be here to do this but he, uh, he is a bit busy, or something, so one, or both of the Cornholey Brothers was...were? going to do it but they are apparently workshopping in Yahk so I'm here.

(Pause)

Uh, my name is Jimmy. Jimmy the Intern. Hi. So, uh, let see here.

(begins to read)

"2010 was an amazing year for Pilotcopilot, we had over 800 people out to see Wedding Pool in February, and the World Premiere of DECK: How I Instigated Then Overcame and Existential Crisis Through Home Improvement had an incredible two night run at the Capitol Theatre. A Big THANK YOU to all the people that were involved in making those shows happen. 2011 is going to be ridiculously jam packed with exciting theatrical extravaganzas. Let's Get To It!
