Sell/Buy/Date View Comments Related Shows Leave it to Tony winner Sarah Jones to get laughs when discussing something as serious as the commercial sex industry. That’s exactly what she’ll be doing in Sell/Buy/Date, her Carolyn Cantor-helmed solo show which will feature Jones taking on 19 different characters. On September 13, she introduced late night host Seth Meyers to a sassy, bespectacled Lorraine. “He’s married, but even so, nice to flirt at 12:30 at night,” Jones joked at Meyers. She also went on to say that she used her impersonation skill to call friends out of class as their parents back in the day. We’re excited to see her use those powers for gut-busting good in Sell/Buy/Date, which begins performances on September 27. In the meantime, watch the clip below!

He added that seed capital investments would also “complete” KLP’s investments.“We invest broadly and deeply all around the world, but up to now we have lacked investments in the starting phase of a company’s history,” he said.The pensions provider saw it as a social responsibility to contribute to new growth in Norwegian business life, Thornes said.The new fund is to manage a total of NOK500m. The European Investment Fund (EIF) has put in the largest stake of NOK155m, while SINTEF Venture has made a NOK110m investment.Other investors alongside KLP include charitable foundations Gjensidigestiftelsen and Sparebankstiftelsen.While the EIF invested in SINTEF’s previous venture fund, this latest allocation is its largest in Norway so far, the research group said.SINTEF said the new fund would promote the commercialisation of research and development results.It will invest in and develop small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) whose activities are based on technology originating from research at SINTEF and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology – both based in Trondheim. Kommunal Landspensjonskasse (KLP), Norway’s municipal pension fund, has taken its first step into venture capital with a NOK75m (€8m) stake in a new fund for Norwegian research businesses.KLP has also indicated that it plans to direct NOK1bn into seed capital over time.The NOK652bn pension provider has invested in the Venture V fund launched by Norwegian research group SINTEF.Sverre Thornes, KLP’s chief executive, said: “This is just a start for us. In the course of the next few years we see ourselves investing a billion kroner into seed capital funds linked to development in many places in the country.”
Despite taking 40 shots on net and finding an early 1-0 lead, the Wisconsin men’s hockey team struggled to fend off Bemidji State, tying the Beavers 2-2 Friday.“We are scrambling to get as many points as we can and not getting two with the expectation, that was our goal tonight, and that’s coming up short,” Eaves said. ” We just didn’t find a way to get that third goal.”Freshman forward Nic Kerdiles put the Badgers on the board 11:55 into the first period after a pass through the crease by sophomore center Brendan Wood left Kerdiles with a shot on a wide open net. The power play goal – an area UW has struggled with all season, finishing just 10.3 percent of opportunities previously this season – gave Wisconsin a lead heading into the locker room after the first period.Just over half way though the second period Beavers forward Phil Brewer found the back door with Badgers goaltender Joel Rumpel out of position and unable to make a save.However Rumpel and the Wisconsin defense regained momentum, successfully defending a two minute 5-on-3 Beaver power play after Woods and junior defender Frank Simonelli were handed cross-checking and tripping penalties, respectively.“When you give up a bit of a weak [goal] you want to make up for it in a way and kind of give you team a chance to get back,” Rumpel said.Momentum from the penalty kill gave way for Wisconsin to again take the lead. Junior forward Sean Little found the back of the net with 59 seconds remaining in the second period, slicing a shot into the upper corner of the net that Bemidji State goaltender Mathieu Dugas could not get a glove on.Though it appeared Wisconsin was ready to add to its one-goal lead heading into the third, it was the Beavers that put one away, with a shot from inside the left circle by sophomore Danny Mattson that tied the game up with just under 14 minutes left to play.Wisconsin remained determined to find victory, putting up 16 shots in the third period to Bemidji States’s seven. Junior center Mark Zengerle failed to convert on a one-on-one situation with Dugas off a pass up the center by Kerdiles with seconds remaining in regulation, sending the game to overtime. Zengerle led the team in shots Friday with 10.“I think their D overcommitted and one slid a little, and I just got down the middle,” Zengerle said. “It was a great play by Nic [Kerdiles] but no finish there.”The five minute overtime period saw little opportunity for either team, ending the game in a 2-2 tie.Both teams will be back in action tomorrow at the Kohl Center, with the face-off time set for 7pm.
