More People I’m Sick Unto Death Of: Blue Man Group13 Feb 2011 / Paul Epps
Hey fellas — mime died out with Red Skelton. It doesn’t become entertaining again because you paint your head blue.
I say to my kid, “You know what I would do if I owned the Blue Man Group concept is have multiple shows all over the world so I can make more money.”
“You can’t do that,” he says.
(It turns out they actually do do this, BTW.)
“Why not? It’s not like going to see the Beatles, where people actually care who’s in the group. It’s more like going to see Lion King. Why would there be only one Lion King show?”
“If you’re making more money, then I’d want you to pay me more money.”
“Well, that’s the beauty of my idea, Clem Kadiddlehopper, because as I said, nobody cares about you. You want more money, you can take a hike. I’ll get another guy in here and paint his head blue and nobody will know the difference.”
