CONGRATULATIONS LISA!!

LISA PETERS 2nd RUNNER-UP
in MISS HOTSPOTS .ie Beauty Pageant!
More about this down bottom!

!!!NEW VIDEO!!!
JASON TRACHTENBURG & The MOON is a DISCO BALL

Together again for the very first time!

Yesterday was the gathering of the 209 Show tribes
in Manhattan
at Frank Wood's
Wind-Down Sunday @ Otto's Shrunken Head.
Above, Jason Trachtenburg of The
Pendulum Swings

meets Noel Avello from The
Moon is a Disco Ball
.
All my friends have band names which are too long!!! haha
Why can't someone call themselves Blort or Freem
or something short
and easier to type over and over?? Haha

We have a historic new video on YouTube today featuring BOTH
The Moon is a Disco Ball
AND
The Pendulum Swings!
It's like the Justice League of music videos!
It's called, All the Pretty Girls!
CLICK
HERE
to watch it now for free!

But it wasn't all about kicking up your heels.
There was ROMANCE in the air as well...

Lucy DeLeche made a very forward proposition to an obviously shocked Angel Yau
(above)!

This led to an onstage fight between Lucy and Noel which could only be resolved
by making the confused Angel (above)sit on stage though a song,
not knowing what to do with the tambourine she was given.
I might make a YouTube video out of the dramatic love triangle
if I can figure out how to edit it down from the 4 cameras.

Angel also performed her "audition" routine, which is sort of ironic
because she just texted me from an audition for some kind of NBC comedy thing.
She asked me what she should do, she only has a minute in front of them.
I asked her if she had a bucket to puke in.
Sadly, she did not. But they would have loved that!
GOOD LUCK TODAY, ANGEL!

The lovely and talented MICHELE
CARLO
(above)
told us a story about drugs and rock'n'roll
from her forthcoming book,
Fish Out of Agua!

Frank liked The moon is a Disco Ball well enough that he's already booked them
to perform at one of his birthday shows coming up in November!
Thanks Frank for throwing the great party for us and thanks also for
giving the Moon girls an excuse to come back to NYC!
To see the videos from this event as I get them done, bookmark the show's blog at

The Moon is a Disco Ball!!!!!
LIVE!! In historic Tompkins Square Park!
Performing their loveliest and most fun song ever,
"TOYS!"
Watch it HERE!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Our own lovely LISA PETERS
came in 2nd runner-up in the Miss Hotspots beauty
pageant in Ireland.
It's a fairly big deal over there. See below, this is Lisa in yesterday's Sunday
paper in Dublin:


Last night Lisa and the first runner-up (her new buddy) got let in for free
and put in the VIP room at a Leona Lewis party.
I think Lisa's mad at me today because last night instead of just congratulating
her, I was lecturing her
about how to extend this into longer-lasting fame. Every time in my life I was
in the VIP rooms, I never cared.
And that's why I'm typing this myself instead of having my hot secretary do
it, you know?
I was totally in Professor Bernard mode, I can become very didactic, but I want
to see Lisa succeed
more than I want to be liked or be popular.
Lucy DeLeche says that when Lisa doesn't understand me, it's because
she's probably expecting me to behave like a normal guy, haha.
That's a good way to put it.

Uh-oh, NOW I've done it! Lisa's leaving.
I talked about myself too much. Beautiful women hate it when you talk about
yourself.

CONGRATULATIONS LISA!!!

Lisa Marie Peters in big beauty contest TOMORROW

Lisa was just writing to me online from the beauty parlor, giving me a verbal preview of what is to come. Apparently her hair is now the hair of a superstar or superhero, from the way she described it. All of us in the States have to just wait though to see it. I'm incredibly jealous of everyone in Dublin right now. If you love Lisa Peters and you're in Dublin, go to Lillie's Bordello (a classy place even with that name, haha) tomorrow (Thursday) night for the MIss Hotspots competition. Apparently there will be TV celebrities there (famous in Ireland at least) and it should be a really big deal.

Lisa, people all over the world are rooting you on! So you have worldwide permission to go ahead and be great!

LISA in MISS UNIVERSE PAGEANT?

209 Show co-creator Lisa Peters is NOT going to be
coming to perform at the 209 Show Live events, but she has a good excuse:
Lisa is in Ireland getting ready for the MISS HOTSPOTS.ie
BEAUTY PAGEANT being held THIS THURSDAY in Dublin!
The winner of this contest is automatically entered in the Miss Universe Ireland
pageant, so obviously we're all very excited for Lisa and I'm very proud of her.
She's been working mostly in modelling and acting lately (below).

A friend of mine commented that Lisa's beauty surpasses these contests,
and that he didn't even need to look at the other contestants to know who he
felt was the winner.
I told Lisa this, and while she accepted the compliment graciously,
she said she wanted to be known more for her music than her looks.
I asked her if I should mention she's a singer or musician on the website?
She said, "No, let it be a surprise when they find out!"
I asked, "So then you want me to just say you're beautiful?"
And she said, "Yeah, defo!"

There's a happy-looking leprechaun.
For more about Lisa, go HERE.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
WHO IS ANGEL YAU?

I first encountered Angel back a few years ago when I had been told by two different TV people that they might want to use my cartoons if I had teenagers in the cast or college students in the cast.
I went searching on not Facebook, not Myspace, but FRIENDSTER (yeah it was that long ago)
and found her by searching for college students who wanted to act or do comedy.
I talked her into playing a voice of a character and a promo thingie got made
for one network.
We would email alot and she asked me what I thought of different comedy scenes
in NYC. I told her about this one toxic comedy scene which locked people in and killed their careers, and I also told her about the UCB scene.
I told her that the UCB scene would get her hired and get her work and a chance
to be known,while the other scene would get her laid and people would write books about having sex with her.
The next thing I knew, Angel was in Los Angeles studying with the UCB and getting
bit parts in TV shows and movie trailers with Sandra Bullock.
We kept in touch and when she was in New York,
Angel would always come on my show.
Fast-forward a bit and I found myself working with a crazy girl from the
aforementioned toxic comedy scene.
She spent a week quitting my show, then apologizing, then quitting again, then
calling me from in front of clubs she was performing at to cry that I was
just like her ex-boyfriend and that I was going to hypnotize her and abuse her.
(I was NOT dating this girl, and she lived with her bf!!!!!!!)
I accepted one of her many resignations and was really
completely and totally ready to never do another public access
television episode ever again with ANYbody.
I sent out a mailer to a limited list at 6 am on a Saturday,
announcing that if anyone on that short list wanted to host the show,
they should contact me before noon that day, a 6-hour time window.
I also think I cursed and was rude in the letter because I honestly
didn't want anyone to take the gig, but I didn't want them saying later
that I hadn't offered them the chance.
In my mind, the show was canceled and I could go back to a real life.
Anyway, Angel wrote back at 9:30 am, which was 6:30 am in Los Angeles,
asking if she could host the show.
When I first met Angel, she was really shy.
I was so proud of her for wanting the gig even though I was
acting grouchy, my heart melted.
I loved the idea of doing the show with Angel-- not just because she's Angel,
but also
because she's someone from the UCB system.
I had worked with the originals in the first season of my show, in 1996,
so I figured, okay, but Angel will be the LAST hostess.
This way I started in the first year with the UCB and I end it with a modern
UCB student.
Angel's humor is mostly quiet, but if you follow along,
then she often surprises you in very unladylike ways!
Here is a case in point:
http://209show.com/angel/angel6192010web.html
That's Angel at the UCB Theatre this past Saturday.
She says she's going to put that on the UCB site, but in the meantime,
you can watch it at the above link.
Angel is also a really good person-- she probably gives me more advice than
I give her.
She's taught me that I don't need to take it personally
when people go crazy or get angry, or say terrible things to me or about me,
and that I CAN have NICE people in my life.
And so can you!
So come meet Angel Yau this coming Saturday and Sunday night
as she does back-to-back shows with
The Moon is a Disco Ball!!!

TONIGHT ON TV:
FINALLY! The NYC Television Premiere of "BEST
FRIENDS on the go!"
by
The MOON is a DISCO BALL!

Mysteriously, this episode has been censored in both boroughs each time I
tried to air it. But they aired last week's show in both places, and I have been talking to them in person lately, so I think there's a good chance this great episode will FINALLY see the light of day! That's The Moon is a Disco Ball and Angel Yau
ON TV TONIGHT IN NYC

Brooklyn: Midnight channel 56 or 69
Manhattan: 2 am channel 67 or 85

Angel gets a shout-out from MICHELE CARLO (below)

in today's new Peter Bernard's New York!
Watch it now in widescreen HD: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bWKVpBH0qU
Today, Michele is talking about her new project sponsored by the Brooklyn
Council on the Arts
as well as her upcoming gig with Angel and The Moon is a Disco Ball,
which she for some reason calls the 209 Show Tenth Anniversary Party,
haha.

I think Lisa and I started calling it the 209 Show
in 2007, hahaha.



This one event has expanded into two, including a charity event for breast cancer that we're very proud to announce that The Moon is a Disco Ball will be hosting the entire evening! It's part of their New York City Tour 2010 (and Sunday is the conclusion of said tour!)
There's a flyer for both events up there, and we'll have more info as the shows get closer!
Thanks to Cliff Ferdon and Frank Wood!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
CONGRATULATIONS TO LISA MARIE PETERS!

If you're not one of the 8 billion people friended to Lisa on Facebook, here
are some of the pix of her at the recent MS. PB IRELAND competition in Mullinger. She looks convincing , she looks like a living ad up there!

Lisa loves being interviewed. This is why she needs to become a star, haha!

$100,000 cash prize or Lisa. Which do you choose? Answer quickly!

OK I'm only including the bathing suit shot as PROOF that Lisa is really in this
beauty pageant, in case people think we're pranking again. If she wins in September, Lisa would become international spokesperson for Planet Beach.
Congratulations, Lisa!!!
Speaking of Lisa and pranks...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jFZ9jXMVOs
See that red pointy hand icon up there in that picture?
Well, you'll have to take our word for it, but that hand points to Lisa Peters, beauty queen, involved in an elaborate PUBLIC PRANK DANCE FLASH MOB in Dublin, Ireland just the other day. For some reason only one person videotaped it, and he neither concentrated on getting good shots of all the dancers nor on getting many good crowd reactions. It's a shame the event wasn't documented better, since the girls obviously put so much effort into their rehearsals.
This is the side of Lisa that usually only comes out after midnight-- the
elaborate, fully thought-out prankster side. She'll invest days and days setting you up and you'll be living in a false reality of her creating for however long she wants it. She's got the most surreal sense of humor and perspective on reality that I've witnessed, and she never fails to surprise me. She's the silliest person on the planet and then she'll send me an mp3 of her new secret song and it's so powerful and sad that it's almost painful to listen to. Her prankster attitude had me convinced for a long time that someone else was really writing her songs!!
I hope she gets back to releasing her music to the public, it's surreal in a BAD way to keep her music hidden.
Anyway, this info is for people who think Lisa is just a pretty girl.
ALTHOUGH, uhhh... she IS out on a modelling shoot as I write this!
