Comedian and actor Matt Oberg (as seen on Comedy Central’s Ugly Americans and 30 Rock, among others) has had an illustrious lineup of musical legends on his show, Hit Parade. There has been George Michael, Phil Collins, Guns N’ Roses, and now Van Halen! OK, OK, not the Van Halen, but the Van Halen tribute band Bottoms Up (who take the job of accurately playing “Panama” very seriously). Helping Oberg take on the high-jumping antics of Diamond Dave are special guests Murderfist (named Village Voice Best Sketch Comedy Group 2010) and the Hit Parade Players Ben Schneider and Liz Bangs. Encore!
