Stagebender Kim had the opportunity to appear on The Tonight Show, with Jay Leno.
It was a remote shoot, taking place at Venice Beach. The bit was called, ?Speedo or Trunks.? The bit was two people wearing long robes, Jay and Kevin had to guess which one was wearing a speedo, and which one was wearing trunks. Kevin picked Kim and Jay picked the other gentleman. When the robes were dropped, Kim was in the Speedo. It was a lot of fun.

Unfortunately, the late great Milton Berle (Uncle Miltie, "Mr. Television") has passed away at the age of 93 (1908-2002). Our favorite films? "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World", and "Broadway Danny Rose" (cameo). Our favorite line? Known for doing anything for a laugh, including stealing others witty quips, he once said about another comedian: "I laughed so hard I nearly dropped my pencil." So, with respect, we steal that one and put it on our web site. He will be missed.
The Stagebenders are currently writing their first comedy record "The Road to Hollywood" to be recorded in early April for a tentative mid-April on-line release. Check back for updates!
