penguin_goddess pinged me last night with the bizarrely cool news that she saw this commercial for "America's Got Talent". Normally I would barely notice such things, as it's basically where all of the old Ed Sullivan shows other than the one's with the Beatles, Stones, Elvis and the Doors went to die. However, the stars of this 30 second spot (they receive a standing ovation!) is none other than the Kinsey Sicks.
Yes, THAT Kinsey Sicks.
Even scarier is the fact that, as I viewed it, I had the same reaction as Kim -- "Holy Shit, is that CHRIS?!"
Last year Chris Tilley (Trampolina's alter ego) left last year to try his considerable chops on Broadway (and was replaced by Charles Romaine -- a bit jarring for those of use following the group for the better part of a decade). We went to the farewell performance in SF, and caught his one man show before he left us for "the lights of". Yet, not only is he featured in the commercial (twice!), you can HEAR him.
Unless, of course, Charles has dramatically improved his depiction of Trampy. That, and underwent massive reconstructive surgery.
I'm SO freaking psyched -- even better, the show is next Tuesday, June 17 -- the day that same-sex marriage licenses are to be granted in California since the state supreme court set the homosexuals free. Then there's the documentary about their stint in Vegas (so much for staying there!) that's being premiered June 28th during pride weekend.
And here I am, possessing tickets for their show at the Herbst on July 11th! Man, if Chris shows up there, it's going to be a ZOO -- and not because of Rachel this time!
