The Wiseguys improv comedy troupe will be hanging at Zinnie's Full Moon Club on Saturday, April 17 and performing its conceivably hilarious show "Storytellers Unplugged." Nothing weird about that right? But get this. Kerry Crawford-Trisler, the wilting homebody also known as the "I Love Memphis Girl," will also be in attendance. And word has it she'll be doing her best to horn in on all the hot comedy action. True story. Anyway, the Intermission Impossible crew—meaning me—was curious as to why someone who never goes anywhere interesting or does anything exciting would want stand up in front of people and try to make them laugh. That's why we asked Kerry if she'd like to play a little game called Three Questions. She said "sure" so here goes.

Intermission Impossible: Are you funny?

Kerry Crawford-Trisler: I've been told I'm funny, and funny lookin'.

Okay I guess. Can you maybe say something funny right now? Just to show us that you can?

Kerry Crawford-Trisler: If you were here, I could play "You Shook Me All Night Long" on my ukulele. It's not a particularly funny song, but the raunchy lyrics coupled with my tiny girl voice tends to make people giggle.

Actually You Shook Me All Night Long reminds me of riding the Himalaya at the Midsouth Fair and riding the Himalaya at the Midsouth Fair always made me throw up. But thanks. Last question: How did you hook up with a bunch of clowns like the Wiseguys?

Kerry Crawford-Trisler: They invited me to do "Storytellers Unplugged," and I rarely say no. Sometimes, I probably should.

Admission is $5. The show gets underway at 8:30
