Mike Myers and Fred Armisen Are The Modern Weepers

The Modern Weepers is a very funny sketch parody on the new wave movement from the 80’s featuring amusing song titles like “Don’t Ask Me Personal Questions On the Dancefloor.” Both Mike Myers and Fred Armisen donned accurate Mancunian and Cockney accents respectively, never once breaking character. Their elaborate hits of the synth percussion were accompanied by emphatic and intense stares and lighting blasts to create the dramatic effect so typical of early 80’s new wave. Lively crowd enjoyed the humor. They played for about 35 minutes total and abruptly left the stage.
