Madge’s short set of jokes got some laughs out of the audience, but a real-life comedian is claiming that the Material Girl singer used her material!
Nadya Ginsburg has generated a bit of a following for her web sketches Madonnalogues, where she plays a pretty spot-on character of the pop superstar in funny situations — one where her Madonna character performs cringy stand-up at a coffee house!!
When Ginsburg saw the actual Madge perform do a stand up set on The Tonight Show, she thought one of the diva’s jokes was noticeably similar to a joke from one of her very own web sketches!
In the sketch, the singer tries to collaborate with her son Rocco about a duet performance, but she isn’t interested in sharing the spotlight! After multiple disagreements, Madge proposes to her son to invite his friends over for a pool party!
Here’s a short clip of the sketch the comedian posted on her Instagram:
@Madonna even used my material for her #Fallon #Standup Episode 03 #Madonnalogues directed by @eldoradogreen9 with special guest star @twalck as RoccoA video posted by Nadya Ginsburg (@nadyaginsburg) on Apr 10, 2015 at 9:56am PDT
This joke was pretty similar to the one that Madonna told during her set on the late night show when she talked about dating younger men. The star joked:
“I did find myself very strangely the other day at breakfast with my son, Rocco, thinking ‘I haven’t had a date in a couple weeks.’ And I look to my son, without thinking, and said, ‘Do you have any friends you could introduce me to?’ “
But Ginsburg isn’t looking to call out Madge for stealing her bits, she idolizes the superstar! The comedian and write spoke with us exclusively about her dreams to work with the pop diva, EXCLUSIVELY telling us:
“My sincere goal is to write for [Madonna] and am hoping that could meet that end.”
Well, this just proves that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!
Ch-ch-check out Madonna’s bit on The Tonight Show in the video (below) and decide if YOU think her joke was swiped from the Ginsburg!
