It has been a lot of fun doing a musical again and getting to play with a very talented cast. It’s been a long time since I’ve done a real musical. The last thing I sang in was the Christmas show last year, but those were holiday standards. It’s easy to forget that Broadway musicals actually have some very complicated harmonies! Nothing makes you realize how out of shape your voice is then pushing out tenor notes you haven’t had to reach since you were in your twenties. I don’t know if I’ll be hired for any national tours any time soon, but it’s been great getting back into swing of things.

While we were rehearsing we shot a series of promo videos to help advertise, I’m sure you’ve seen the one of me if you follow my Twitter feed or are a friend/fan on Facebook. In case you haven’t, here are all of the promos in one spot!

You Don’t Want To Meet My Lawyer.

This is a video that used to be really hard to find. I have always been a big fan of the Sifl and Olly Show. They are hand puppets, it’s silly humor, and back in the day I would stay up all hours watching MTV just so I could catch these episodes. Every once in a while I try to bring back a catch phrase or two and the one of my favorite jokes was during the “Precious Roy” segment when they would talk about their problems and it would turn out to be a “serious ass *blank* problem.” If more people got that reference I would use it all the time.

I would put up a link to their website or to where you might be able to purchase the DVD’s but MTV are bastards and they not only still hold all the rights, but they refuse to release both this show and the episodes of “The State” which is another really funny show from the same people who bring you “Reno 911.”

This segment used to put my friend Randy and I into fits of laughter that usually ended in choking and tears. You might not find it as funny – hell you might not think it’s funny at all – but MTV keeps trying to get it taken down. Watch while you can, who knows how long this will work.

By the way, you’re a cheap ho.

See you tomorrow!
