Begin the last month of the last year at the top of the Noble fir

As we approach the ultimate month of 2011 (according to the sheep who believe the Mayans) and face imminent obsolescence, let’s all agree to go out in style. I, for one, will be celebrating my encroaching death every single, dingle day of December.

And I can think of no better way to start than with an evening stacked head to toe of alum and celebs.

The lineup on the iO West Main Stage this Thursday, December 1 is a rare assemblage of presence (not a misspelling).

First, at 8, The Lampshades with Scot Robinson (Anchorman) and Kate Flannery (The Office) will perform their Christmas special. This mock lounge act, which has been mocking it monthly for years, is so mock bawdy and mock raw and truly hilarious you will need to up your life insurance because you might actually bust a nut laughing.

Then, at 9, Joel Murray and Friends grace the stage with their clever version of the Armando. Typically, folks from Mad Men and Whose Line is it Anyway? join the cast along with other brilliant seasoned improvisers.

Finally, long-standing giants Quartet followed by newly formed stars Pascal share the ten-o-clock hour.

There is clearly no better way to spend the first month of the last of your life.
