Happy New Year! The 21st century is becoming a man in 2013! But before we toss aside all memories of 2012 and break out the hora in celebration of the millenium’s Bar Mitzvah, let’s take a moment to reflect on the work of a previously Bar Mitzvahed young lad who put virtual pen to e-paper and created some of the most indelible images of Running Late’s Season 2 — Mikey Heller. Plucked from the dark recesses of Craigslist and residing in the even darker, colder recesses of Rochester, NY, Mikey cranked out a new, inspired poster for each of the season’s ten shows. There’s no wonder about this wunderkind’s talents; he’s also been pumping out the extremely popular web comic Time Trabble since 2010. Dude’s got 5 x as many Twitter followers and nearly 9 x as many Facebook likes than our own damn show does! BUT HE DESERVES EVERY ONE OF ‘EM! Peep the posters, and if you like what you see, you can purchase a limited edition print from the Running Late store. For commissions of your own, contact Mikey direct!
The highlight of the night… Chris Barron brought the house down with a Spin Doctors’ classic about duplicate royal sons. Too vague? Here’s a hint: the song is called Two Princes.

The NFL moved their season opener to accommodate the President, but Running Late didn’t budge. And it didn’t matter! Despite competition from Fashion Night Out, Madonna at Yankee Stadium, the closing night of the Democratic National Convention, and literally everything else there is to do on a Thursday night at 9:30pm, we sold out our 4th consecutive show at the PIT last night with a Season 2 premiere for the ages.
