Blago’s Rock Opera Cameo

This time, the comedy is intentional (and probably a whole lot less funny): Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich opened a comedy show Saturday night that lampooned his rise and fall, guest appearing in a production of the rock opera, Rod Blagojevich Superstar. His appearance included mock crucifixion (he probably wasn’t joking) and an enthusiastic plug for his wife, who is appearing on NBC’s I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here. Later, during the improv portion of the show, Blagojevich was asked what he thought of rock opera. “It’s bullshit,” he answered.
