okay fellow tiki fans here goes...
I am pitching a new lifestye entertainment show called Lotta Living. It's based loosely on the L.A. Conservancy Modern Committee and the Lotta Living community that my cousin Futura Girl has been building, along with some Tiki Central elements thrown in.
(About a year ago, I taped a test segment with Bamboo Ben and Crazy Al. And I plan to involve my friends at T.C. whenever possible and appropriate... and always spread good authentic information about tiki.) If given the chance - I will dispell the Jimmy Buffet connection
I went to a trade show in Las Vegas last month and they taped me and King Kukulele and C.B. Howlie pitching our show to Jay Leno.
I just got the call that they are gonna pick up the segment and air it on Wednesday night. The bit is they show the clip and then ask the audience if the show should get picked up.
Here's where Tiki Central comes in...
We need the following help:
If you are able to attend the taping - please do so. We could use the plants in the audience. It's taped at the NBC Studios in Burbank. They open the doors at 4:30, but they ask people to line up around 3:15
I am planning on showing up that afternoon to 'warm up' the audience outside while they wait in line. Hopefully King kuke and C.B. will be able to join me... I will be handing out matchbooks and a few t-shirts to lucky tourists. If you can't attend the show, we could use help from someone taking pictures of this whole shebang.
If anyone has publicist, p.r., agent friends with good connections that might want to jump on our bandwagon - send me a private message we need a "mgmgt. team" put together yesterday.
After the show has aired, please call NBC and ask for the Tonight Show. Ask innocently if they can direct you to more information about Cherry Capri (that crazy red headed girl, that show with the krazy uke player, etc...) DO NOT CALL UNTIL AFTER YOU HAVE ACTUALLY SEEN THE SEGMENT AIR - otherwise it will not look "real" 818-840-4444
I suspect there will be some celebrating at Futura Girl's house on Wednesday night. We gotta open that bottle of rum that HumuHumu brought over on my birthday! If you're in the neighborhood, come'on over...
Thanks for the grass root support. And the TIKI said, "Spread the mana across the airwaves and let the mai tais pour forth across the lands. And he saw it was good"

I am getting into LA on Wed morning.
This sounds like it could be pretty fun.
We have been to a Tonight Show tapeing before and it was interesting.
So is anyone else up for this???

I am almost 100% sure that I will be there. I will be bringing along my buddy who works the door at the Purple Orchid.

I can help with the rum! I'll be working, probably until ~6. How can I catch up with you guys for the post-taping festivities?

Congrats Miss Capri, that sounds like a real possibility. Though I am unfree Wednesday I will be sending mana by thought power! Hope you get the gig.

If I can stay awake, I'll try to survive through Leno's brand of "humor."
Here's a link to the Tonight Show's page where it looks like you can also e-mail them feedback -

Here's some ticket info for the Tonight Show:

So I'm guessing we'd need tickets before lining up in the afternoon?

I'm certain you'll be swept up into the torrent of Hollywood's clique - make some money - produce a killer show and then move onto your next great idea.
Very very cool.
