Blago Guest Stars in 'Rod Blagojevich Superstar'
Ousted Gov. Rod Blagojevich appears as himself in a comedy show that lampoons the rise and fall of his own political career.
CHICAGO - Ousted Gov. Rod Blagojevich doesn't seem to mind being the butt of a theatrical joke.
Blagojevich got in on the joke Saturday evening, appearing as himself in a comedy show that lampoons the rise and fall of his own political career.
He opened The Second City's "Rod Blagojevich Superstar," a parody of the rock opera "Jesus Christ Superstar," standing on a chair with his arms raised as if he were being crucified.
The show -- which portrays Blagojevich as greedy, tactless and hair-obsessed -- opened in February and was supposed to end June 14. But production officials extended it to Aug. 9 due to constant sold-out performances.
