Wringing song, satire from the headlines

PCLI invites everyone to ring out the old year and welcome the new with laughter. This year our Capitol Steps-style review of politics and culture features our usual blend of melody and parody, but also features a farewell from a “powerful” Long Island icon, Richard Kessel. Or maybe not: perhaps Richie will choose our show as a venue for describing plans to plug-in to a new venture. Join us and find out!

Times like these call for comedy! Our review of recent events on Long Island is framed around the insights of a lovely, young reporter as she’s introduced to the mores and methods of the local press corp. Included in her lessons are wry looks at trends in outsourcing jobs, in-sourcing immigrant labor, gas-prices in a commuter culture, and listening as the air leaks from Long Island’s housing bubble. It’s fun. Honest! Have you ever been misled by the press?

Send-ups for satire this year include America’s favorite Long Islanders Lindsay Lohan, Studly Septugenarian Al D’Amato, and
of course, all-time hall-of-famers Joey and Amy. Borrowed tunes include works by Petula Clarke (as accompanied by a duo of hot back-up singers), Crosby, Stills & Nash, Kim Carnes, Madonna, and that hot new artist all the kids are talking about, Stephen Foster …

I look forward to seeing you on Thursday, Dec. 6 at the Hilton Hotel, Melville! This is your announcer speaking.
