Rod Blagojevich Superstar!

Bill and I went to Second City to see their spoof, Rod Blagojevich Superstar! which is quite funny. It uses some of the music from Jesus Christ Superstar so they sing, "Blagojevich...Superstar, Are you as nuts as we think you are?"
The characters are Rod and Patti, Lisa Madigan, Dick Mell and of course Roland Burris, and the numbers are really creative, some are just hysterical, all cleverly done. It puts the whole sordid situation in perspective and makes you glad that he's finally out of the limelight. But if you're missing his ubiquitous presence go see this show instead - it's lots more fun.
