Resident douchebag John Mayer, who just can’t stop himself from making that creepy O-face every time he, as he puts it, “feels” the music, might be a perfect candidate for a comedy show—and yet why kick a dead horse when its down? A far greater challenge is the fist-pumping, all-American wholesomeness of the Boss. And that’s exactly who four sketch groups aim to capture tonight in The Bruce Springsteen Show, described as a “heart-stopping, pants-dropping, house-rocking, earth-shaking, booty-quaking, love-making” event. Presented by the Upset Triangle, this send-up of Springsteen’s true essence—signature white T-shirt, blue jeans, bandanna, and all—stars the wacky talents of Seth Herzog (Role Model), Leo Allen (Funny or Die, Human Giant), BoF, Dan St. Germain, and Rue Brutalia. So, who’s playing Steven Van Zandt?
