    Hello, I was just googling my last name, and as there are not many of us in the world. I’m just wondering how you guys came up with the name LYGO, Its funny because my whole family are like comediennes.

    • LYGO DC says:

      Ha! Never occurred to us that that’d be a name. For us, it’s an acronym. We started as a brunch show: “Laugh Your Grits Off”. When we added evening shows, we just shortened to the acronym so we could maintain the connection with our beginning without confusing people.
