The Special without Brett Davis has officially turned one year old! Thanks so much to the people that make it happen (just naming a few): Darren, Frank, Edmond, Kate, Joe, Jordan, Kevin, David, Charles, Billy, Rob, Madonna, Chris, John, Max, Joe, Catherine, Matthew, Anthony, Nora, Alec, Scott and many many more. Plus all of the talented comedians, bands, actors, dancers, random people, pro wrestlers, magicians, Oscar nominees, famous dogs, Trivago spokesmen and actual murderers that have schlepped up to MNN late at night to be weird on television. I can’t tell you how humbling and crazy it is.

Even if/when I eventually flame out and disappear, this show’s greatest legacy will be it’s IMDB page, where people will look back in shock, surprised that such a talented group of people all worked on something (for free, in relative obscurity) before making it big.

Mike Abrusci took these pics on the very first night of the show, and I share them with you for the first time. 

If you still haven’t seen it, I suggest checking out the “Best of The Special” episode to really see what it’s all about.
