Last Thursday night was the wrap party for The Minor Accomplishments of Jackie Woodman, which has finished filming its second season, and cast and crew were treated to cocktails, crab cakes, and cigars. Jackie herself, comedienne and series creator Laura Kightlinger, was in fine spirits, dancing the night away with partner-in-crime Nicholle Tom, while the rest of the gang warmed up their vocal chords for the midnight live-band karaoke. I left at the party’s peak, just as the grips got a bit gropey, and the best boys started to look less than their best. Shame really – we were curious to see how exactly one performs Madonna’s “Ray of Light” with a live backing band. Catch Minor Accomplishments on IFC this August, and befriend Jackie on her MySpace for airing reminders and behind-the-scenes photos.
