He's performed on cruise lines, TV shows and Vegas casinos. But he did a nine-minute bit at Improv Comedy Palace about various celebrities—real celebrities—contemplating appearing on Dancing With the Stars. His Jack Nicholson was all sharp eyebrows and smooth growling. His Nicholas Nolte killed. His Al Gore was robotic (meaning good). His George Bush was off, more like an impression of Will Ferrell's impression. But his Christopher Walken was a bullseye. Then he started interacting his celebrities. As Charlie Sheen: "I'm a little rusty. The last time I went dancing was on a table in Mexican with two hookers, a pile of blow and Garey Busey." As Garey Busey: "Goddamit kid, last night, that was not me, that was Nick Nolte." As Nick Nolte: "Shut up, Garey!" [WR]
