You just never know what Taste That is cooking up.  Last Saturday night they really outdid themselves with the opening show for the 2019 Comedy Country Summer Series.  The night started with your worst nightmare, an accordion recital.  Thankfully, followed quickly by the County Round-Up, news and views from around the County (including Wellington).  Then Noah showed up and a dinosaur!  And finally, the night ended with too many puns, with lots of laughs in between.   I know, you’re sorry you missed this show.  Don’t worry ‘they’ll be back’ August 17th in the Valley, opening for Sex T-Rex.

Special thanks to Michael Lindon and Ramesh Pooran for all the wonderful photos.
