    Continuation of kbuzz Single Bottle Blind LIF: "talkmusic.com"
    https://www.talkbeer.com/community/threads/single-bottle-blind-lif-talkmusic-com.42140/

    Which is a continuation of MrVonzipper Single Bottle Blind LIF
    https://www.talkbeer.com/community/...n-of-something-single-bottle-blind-lif.42080/

    I haven't reviewed kbuzz bottle yet, but I wanted to get this thread rolling ASAP!

    Single Bottle Blind LIF Rules: The winner will receive a Blinded single bottle in which they must Blind Review the beer in this thread and then continue this premise and continue the LIF. Beers you actually have a Love are encouraged. Weak beer makes for a shitty LIF. Also you must sign and date the styro shipper to keep tradition.

    So those are the general rules. Now let's personalize it for me! I love comedy. It's been a big part of my life, both watching it, listening to it, and performing it. Let's guess about some of my favorite comedy related things to win some beer!

    How you win: Guess correctly all three of the questions below. 1 guess per day per user.

    1) What is my favorite comedy ensemble? For the sake of this question, "comedy ensemble" can be a sketch group, musical comedy group, show cast, movie cast, improv group, whatever. It's a group of people being funny.

    2) Which comedy ensemble put out the first comedy DVD I ever bought?

    3) I've performed improv comedy for a long time. How many different improv groups have I been a part of? This will only count long-running teams that I regularly rehearsed and performed with, and not one-off jams and stuff like that.

    Will likely provide hints daily depending on how things go.

    Because this was rethreaded, I think tags are needed to draw attention.

    Great guesses so far! New day, new clue, new guesses. Due to my time zone, I'll say that the rule for "one guess per day" is really "one guess per set of clues", so if you already guessed today before this post feel free to guess again. So far nobody has guessed any of the questions.

    1) My favorite comedy ensemble doesn't have anything to do with music.
    2) Several members of the DVD comedy ensemble have gone on to be between somewhat and very famous for other work.
    3) I have been part of improv groups in four distinctly different "scenes".

    More clues! Also, one of the items has been guessed!

    1) Favorite Comedy Ensemble - "Ensemble" was a bit of an intentional misdirection. My favorite ensemble is actually a duo.
    2) First Comedy DVD - Even if you've never seen any of the members of this ensemble perform, there's a chance your kids might have, as some of the members have also done voice acting for kids cartoons.
    3) Number of groups - In one of the distinct "scenes" that I was a part of, I was part of 5 different groups.

    1. Key n Peele (because i can’t think of any other Non musical duos and if it’s Abbot and Costello or Laurel and Hardy, you can fuck right off. And I hope it’s not Bob and David because there was a clear Cast there)

    More clues! Two of the items have been correctly guessed, though not at the same time!

    1) Favorite Comedy Ensemble - They're an improv duo, though you might have seen them independently do other non-improv stuff as well.
    2) First Comedy DVD - The DVD in question contains a sketch with a character whose first name is the same as my last name. Hint: my TB user name is super creative.
    3) Number of groups - You could count them on your fingers. Unless you were Buster Bluth.
