Steve Buscemi did a skit on the April 10'th show, which was ok, but came off pretty scripted. Still, pretty cool. Also, Lena Dunham played Bob Dylan, which was groan-inducing. NY has no love for her, regardless of what HBO wants you to think with that stupid show she had. The audience (which was great the entire night) was pretty much in solidarity in hating her being there. Not funny at all.
My impression of the show was overall positive. I thought Mike D was much better at being tongue-in-cheek. Adrock had a much more natural charisma and stage presence, but I think he over-acted, if that makes any sense. My favorite part was easily when they went over the Rick Rubin stuff. That was absolutely hysterical. Roddy Piper got a big pop from the crowd.
