Well, from a comedic standpoint, I have to be happy that Hillary’s still in this thing. Last week my former Second City castmate Brian Gallivan and I went to Chicago and filmed out scene “Killer” from the last show – the one where I play Hillary and he plays a reluctant assassin. The final edit is supposed to be done in the next week or so, and I’m glad that it will still be relevant then.
This week I’m traveling for some shows that Second City and the Economist magazine have teamed up to do. It’s a cast of 5 of us – all SC alums now living in LA, and it’s been a lot of fun. We were in Atlanta for the first show and now we’re in Raleigh. We’re doing three scenes from my last show (including Killer and my Al Gore song), so that’s been a nice nostalgia trip. The other part of the show, which is called “The Art of Political Satire,” is this guy who goes by the name of Kal and is a political cartoonist for the Economist. He’s very nice and looks like Mark Twain. During the show he does a segment where he does some political caricatures and even teaches the audience how to draw President Bush. We’ll do another show in San Francisco at the end of June.
