This show was a rare monthly show that did not contain an episode of Universe Journey. The next time this would occur would be three and a half years later, in Show XLIX, though that one still had UJ characters in it, while this one did not. Jerome has said that it felt odd to do a show without the segment.
This was Ryan Yohe's first performance as a troupe member. He guest starred three times the previous year before this promotion, which was earned by winning a second major character, Spencer in The Scary Dead. He was the first new troupe member after the initial formation of the group.
Cast member Katelyn Hamilton, who drove from several states away, took a two-month winter hiatus to avoid bad weather driving. She would repeat this in subsequent years.
For the first six shows, commercial breaks featured the same two commercial segments. With the end of Cowboy Joe in December, Holly Harper premiered to fill the slot this month. Never intended to be an every-month story, Holly would run periodically for years as one of the most-performed commercial segments.
The podcast version of the show launched just six days prior to this live show. The delay was purposeful to account for predicted technical difficulties and other slowdowns that did occur in the first six months of performances. Podcasts were originally not in order, but over time, they would be eventually be mostly released in performance order. The lead time would also increase with additional shows and material, until eventually, by late 2019, it was a full year ahead of the live show.
