Wow - you know it's bad when even the government officials are making jokes at your expense!
New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg recently took part in the annual Inner Circle Comedy Show - which is staged by current and former City Hall reporters - and decided to make a pretty blatant crack at the troubled Broadway show Spider Man: Turn Off The Dark by dressing up as a superhero to fly over the stage, before getting caught hovering over it due to "technical difficulties!"
In the skit, he jokingly asks the stage hand "Will I be up here long?" to which he's told:
"No. We just have to issue an RFP, get three bona-fide bids, go before the community board, submit a ULURP application, and do an environmental-impact statement — and we'll have you down and you can grab the train home…from the completed Moynihan Station."
Oh man, we have to hand it to them - that's pretty funny!
Hopefully the producers of the show have as much a sense of humor about how ridiculous the situation has gotten as everyone else!
