If you've spent precious work hours watching an Internet gift called Yacht Rock, you're familiar with J.D. Ryznar. In 2005, Ryznar and his comedian and writer friends (David B. Lyons, Hunter Stair, Drew Carey, Dan Harmon, Jason Lee and Doug Benson) created the web series, which gently spoofed a time when music was smooth thanks to soft-rock bands such as The Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan, Loggins & Messina, Hall & Oates, Christopher Cross and the smoothest of them all, Michael McDonald. Now Ryznar is turning his attention to another bearded classic-rock icon, Bob Seger. Ryznar describes A Night of 1,000 Bob Segers as a “low-budget play wrapped around a tribute band,” with Ryznar acting as narrator, while Jason Makiaris and the Bobsegers play Seger songs from the '60s to the '80s and a cast – including Stair, Tim Heidecker (Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! ), John Konesky (Tenacious D) and stand-up comics Matt Braunger, Kyle Kinane and Mike Burns – liberally reinterprets Seger's life and career. Audience members are encouraged to come dressed as Seger. Wearing underwear and socks à la Risky Business doesn't count.
