Election Special: Planet Washington Show!


“BELIEVE” – THE BOOK OF ROMNEY!

“FORWARD” – BARACK OBAMA SUPERSTAR!

“JUST GO AWAY” – AMERICA

 

Planet Washington will present a special show of wicked funny and musical spoofs of the elections, the candidates, and all the fun, fudge, and gridlock that is Washington – in the weekend between the two presidential debates:

Our Triumphant Return to DC: At our old haunt The Westin, formerly the Vista International, made infamous in 1990 when DC Mayor Marion Barry was videotaped smoking a small pipe in Room 727 (apparently a non-smoking room) and was escorted out by FBI agents who just happened to be next door (There’s always a cop around when you DON’T need one. ) (“At the Vista with the Sista” is Stop #12 on The Planet Washington Irreverent Tour )

Last time we performed at The Westin our friend and mentor Mark Russell, Dean of DC political satirists, dropped in to share a few of his arrows which were as always right on target!
Mark just turned 80 in August and is still the Jedi Master of musical political parody!

Parodies

Arizona: The Borderline Musical!

Hil: Arizona can’t just legislate in foreign affairs and immigration law!
Here’s why: 

AZ Citizenship Quiz
   

For County Sheriffs catching suspects – like sentry posts during WWII – “Who is Joe Dimagio?” “Rita Heyworth?
We have obtained an Arizona County Sheriffs spot “citizenship quiz” – sure to identify real Americans: 1. We all know Senator John McCain. Who is Arizona’s OTHER Senator? 2. How many homes does John McCain own? 6 5 10 3. John McCain is a Maverick. True or False.
Teach Your Children Well
Arizonans may know what they’re doing. If the Navajo had stepped up THEIR homeland security – they would still own Phoenix and John McCain would be a pit boss at the Lucky Cowpoke Casino!
Set it to music!
Arizona – The Borderline Musical
ARIZONA (PARODY OF Oklahoma!) Lyrics by OSCAR HAMMERSTEIN II Music by RICHARD RODGERS Parody by KEN RYNNE
ARIZONA, WHERE YOUR LIFE CAN BE A LIVING HELL
