Look How Awesome My Life Is

From Schtick or Treat organizers Matt Ruby and Mark Normand:

Bands often perform special "tribute" sets on Halloween and do an entire show as their fave band. It's always a lot of fun and crowds love it. So why not do the same thing with comedy!?...

Starring:
NORM MACDONALD (Jesse Popp)
JERRY SEINFELD (Mark Normand)
EDDIE MURPHY (Matt Maragno)
RODNEY DANGERFIELD (Matt Ruby)
+ LOTS MORE
...AND YOU!!?!?!???

You perform up to 3 minutes in character as a famous comic. You can even go all out and do full costume. Let's have fun with it.

So what d'ya say?!?!?


I say where's my windbreaker pant suit? I'm going as Sinbad!

Good idea. For ages I thought I knew him but it turns out I was matching your face to Hasan McLendon's name. Now I know he is a ghost.

And just so the readers at home can get a double take:

Hassan Madry

Mo Diggs

The Imperial Palace in Vegas has a show called Legends in Concert with celeb impersonators. The real Kenny Rogers subbed in for his impersonator one night for the show. After the show, some staff members did a quick poll asking the audience about what they thought of the show and the Kenny Rogers impersonator. One guy said, "he was ok but nothing like the real Kenny."

I think it was because he sang, "You've got to know when to nip 'em. Know when to tuck 'em. Know when to change your face. Know kids will run. You never count your money when you're talkin' to the doctor. There'll be time enough for counting while the healin's done."
