Perfect Liars Club at The Science Club on Monday 2nd June 2014
This show, billed as the preview to our Capital Fringe Festival shows in July, had some of the best stories ever, thanks to our four trusty suspects: Adam Ruben, JC Calcerano, Natalie McGill, and Rebecca Armendariz. By the luck of the draw, Natalie was first, with her claustrophobic tale of being trapped in a flaming coffin in an amusement park. Then Adam was up, claiming that he befriended a college alumnus who turned out to be a criminal mastermind. Then came JC, with his alleged stumbling into a white supremacist gathering. And finally, Rebecca, with her unlikely tale of cactus drugs and sex magik, with a k. The audience was bamboozled. After a rigorous round of interrogation, including a surprise rendition of a walrus song by Adam, few people felt certain... but after the vote there was one person who seemed pretty unlikely. Until he stepped forward: JC was the liar! Gasps and laughs all round as we applauded JC for doing a watertight job with this brilliant lie. Bravo, JC.
