I performed in the stage reading of Shakes the Clown as Ho Ho the Clown, a role originally played by my comedy hero, Paul K of the Fake Gallery. Original cast members at the reading were Bobcat Goldthwait, Julie Brown, Tom Kenney, Florence Henderson, and Dan Spenser. Laraine Newman impersonated the late La Wanda Page, Ric Overton did Paul Dooley, and Kevin Pollak did Robin Williams. He sat next to me, and after saying “Whoa!,” turned to me, pointed to the script, and said, “It really says ‘Whoa!’ here.”
