After an arduous and fulfilling journey out to Columbus – replete with countless personal and professional revelations – the Toots arrived at Denison university ready to perform. During their 10 hours trip from New York, the Toots discussed their views on religion, abortion, and their own quirks and idiosyncrasies. For example, Kyle learned that Rick has no pinky toe on his right foot. Quirky huh?
The Toots arrived on Denison’s campus overwhelmed by the support of their fans and admirers. As they drove up Main Street in Granville toward Denison’s campus, the Toots were flanked by hundreds, if not thousands, of Denison students cheering “Toots, Toots, Toots…” After being treated to a feast of bok choi, cabbage and artichoke hearts at
the home of Denison student and teen rap sensation P-Star, the Toots felt ready to perform. The evening proved to be a perfect appetizer to an entrée of comedy and fun.
By MCing Doobiepalooza, the largest annual concert on Denison’s campus, the Toots showed their fans, and industry professionals, that their professional skills are not limited to sketch comedy, improv comedy, stand-up comedy, musical performance, and commercial acting. As MCs the Toots provided some much need comedy relief between sets. The show lasted 6 hours (2 hours longer than the Toots had agreed to perform, but they rolled with the punches), and featured a number of acts that were as diverse stylistically as they were in their skill level. Everyone from talentless no-name phony Carter Moebius to headliners Beach Fossils – international superstars, fellow Brooklyn natives, and close personal friends of the Toots – were given a chance to show their stuff.
However, in the end, as fun as it was for the Toots to MC Doobiepalooza, the Toots can’t wait to perform their show tomorrow and show Denison what it means to be successful.
