World Series, SnapChat Rap, & Anniversary Love… Typical #DateMe Weekend.

It was another CRAZY week at #DateMe!

Note the guys in the above pic. They’ll come into play later…

It’s Time For Our Weekly Roundup

Every week we feature our favorite moments from the previous week’s #DateMe audience, posing the question, “Would YOU Date Our Audience?”

We’re pretty sure the answer is YES. Because they’re Hilarious!

We had submissions via:

Follow us on those platforms!

And read on to see it all. Who knows. YOU might be featured!!!

Here Are This Week’s Audience Favorites:

PickUp Lines

We asked for your Best Pickup Lines. And you gave them.

This Week We Had The Tried And True:

I just do the bend + snap. It has a 98% change of success in getting a man’s attention.

Hey, any reference to Legally Blonde is a winner in my book.

Then The Direct And Unapologetic…

Did you just fart? Because you blew me away…

The above submission came from a proper LADY.

Nice work, Caroline! #Owning it!

And Finally,  The Cerebral Poet…

The most important things in life are love and wine. I have one but not the other and therefore my life is empty.

Ah, Will… you sweet, sweet poet. At first I assumed you just had the wine and were lonely for a lady.

But now I’m wondering if you have a lady and would rather have Wine??

Well, you’ve got me thinking, so that’s a win. Cheers!

Profile Names

We ask our audience to create their own Profile Names.

This Adorable Couple Posted Their Profile Names On Instagram.

We’ve got “CozyBabyPooh” and “2PhonezGuy489”

That name KILLS me!!!

Why does he have two phones? And why is he leading with that?!

Also, someone commented on his Instagram pic…

“Winkyboo67” “blueFlame2000” “PartayInMyPants4” “SamDogs6969696”

More like this, please!

And Finally, In Line With The Theme For The Weekend:

Haha, LOVE the sense of humor, Will!

And this brings us to…

Cubs Weekend

Saturday night the Cubs were playing the Dodgers for their spot in the World Series.

We were really surprised that we had a packed house for our 8pm show, given that the Cubs haven’t gone to the World Series since 1945.

BUT we WERE packed. AND the audience was really respectful.

I expected to see tons of guys on their phones during the show. But those that were, did a great job of hiding it.

I had a hunch something had happened during my final monologue when I heard someone rush out and slam the door to the theatre quickly. But the rest of the audience, remarkably, stayed with us.

As I walked offstage before the curtain call Dana whispered…

“Cubs Won”

We quickly did our bows and the show outro and then the audience erupted in applause. I’d like to take credit for that but I’m pretty sure it was for the Cubs.

Kudos to the audience for being so respectful. And congratulations, Chicago!!!!

Now, back to our regularly scheduled Dating Stories:

Awkward Dating Stories

We asked. You Tweeted. Here are this week’s favorite #DontBeMine Awkward Dating Stories.

“Hey, Babe, do you have any credit cards?”

Hm… not sure how that works as a pickup line. Assuming he wanted a Sugar Mama?

“Is it cool if I never call you again?”

Um, Yeah, it IS. Since you just revealed yourself to be a huge D-bag!

Sorry, Alyssa. You deserve SO much better.

In fact, let’s focus on some positive Love Stories.

Happy Anniversary

This week we got the following Tweet:

This makes my heart so very, very happy! Thanks for celebrating at #DateMe!

We Also Had ANOTHER Successful Couple Approach Us After Our Show.

Elyse & Werner

Elyse came up and told me she’d been on…

More Dates This Summer Than In Her Entire Life!

She tried Match, Plenty Of Fish, OkCupid, and I think a couple other apps?? Must’ve been EXHAUSTING.

Anyway, she met Werner and they immediately deleted all their dating apps! Because they just KNEW.

Then they came to see #DateMe to laugh at all the ridiculousness that they no longer have to deal with!

Congratulations Elyse & Werner! So happy you found each other!

Audience Member Of The Week:

So we usually feature one of the Volunteers from the actual show. But this week our Favorite Audience members were two guys sitting front and center right by the stage.

You may recognize them from the TracyLovesCats KITTIES pic at the top of this post.

Here’s them visiting our #DateMe Photobooth:

Phil & Jason

Note the excited expression. We LOVE that!!!

A Lot Of Times The Audience Doesn’t Realize That WE CAN SEE YOU!!!

Most of the time people are laughing and having fun. But occasionally we do see:

  • Random Drunk Girl Passed Out On Her Friend’s Shoulder
  • Girl Taking Selfies of HERSELF While We’re Onstage
  • People Who Came To A Comedy Show But Can’t Crack A Smile

Hey, it’s all good.

You do YOU.

Our job is to entertain you and if it’s not your cup of tea or you’re got something else going on, seriously, no worries.

But In Order To Not Let It Bring Us Performers Down, I Have A Trick I Do.

If I see someone with a sour face, I immediately look to find someone else to focus on. I like to pick select audience members out who are genuinely smiling and laughing and I think to myself…

“I’m doing this show for THEM.”

And Phil & Jason were just those people. Sitting in the front row, giving us so much love and so many laughs.

But The Favorite Part For Me Was At The End Of The Show.

We have a moment where Dana Robie takes an audience member’s hand and serenades him lovingly.

And when she came up to Phil he was so genuinely enthusiastic and adorable that it seriously touched our hearts. He totally played along with the moment and it was just a perfect moment in the show.

We also got to meet them in the lobby after the show.

Phil Posted This Adorable Pic On Instagram:
