As promised, last year’s Kolpovision winners! They don’t have names in the strip yet…but they’re based on Ilsa and Freyde from But I’m A Cat Person, so in the transcript I’ll call them Not-Ilsa and Not-Freyde.
Holly: Hi! Can I talk to you for a minute? My name’s Holly, and I work with Cedar. You don’t know me, but I’m . . .
. . . a big fan.
Not-Freyde: We get those.
…Why do they not have a roof?
I was wondering that myself honestly.
I’ll do you one better: Why is the Tamaputian green room on a cart instead of a permanent fixture halfway up a wall?
If I had to guess? It’s because the Tamaputian green room is actually a hastily-repurposed high quality doll playset. Presumably this is is because the venue’s walls are too historic to be altered for accessibility.
Here’s where Holly asks them to stretch out their performance, to cover for Cedar being far away at the hurricane.
I’d have thought “I’m on Cedar’s staff” would get you farther than “I’m a fan of yours” here, but I don’t know what Holly’s going to say next.
“I work with Cedar” and “I’m on Cedar’s staff” are pretty similar. The difference is the former doesn’t say that Cedar pays her. But I think either get her an excuse to be here.
The look on Holly’s face as she realizes the unintentional pun she’s about to say is priceless.
(yes, I know you can see only half of it, but it’s still got that “oh, oh *no*” vibe perfectly xD )
