Thrilling Adventure Hour #146: The Algonquin Four in ‘Fun and Whimsy!’

Starring Annie Savage as Dorothy Parker; Mark McConville as Woodrow “Woody” Wilson; John Ross Bowie as Harry Houdini; Mark Gagliardi as Robert Benchley; and Paul F. Tompkins as K.


Recorded November 2, 2013.


  1. Dorothy Parker adopted 22 dogs during her lifetime. Woodrow Wilson was her Boston terrier. Her last, a poodle was named Cliche. Actually, it was the second dog to be named Cliche.

  2. Nate says:

    She didn’t. It was the table itself that was turned into crocodiles, and then one of them was torched by Robert Benchley before they were turned back into the table. Presumably Dorothy was munching on the charred remains of the croc Benchley fried.

    As far as I can tell, the only association that Woodrow Wilson has with the Algonquin Round Table is that in a fictional mystery series by Agata Stanford, Dorothy owns a dog named Woodrow Wilson. In reality, it appears Parker’s dog was named Cliche. Any idea why one of the other *actual* members of the Round Table wasn’t chosen for the fourth spot?

  3. Rob S. says:

    If Dorothy Parker was allergic to shell fish soup before it was turned into crocs why did she eat it after it was turned back into shellfish soup?

  4. Alec says:

    Dorothy Parker is like a dream low-Int character from a Fallout game.
