June 2008

Clark and Barry Pearl, who plays the producer Bela Zangler, steal
the show with "What Causes That?" - in which Clark dresses as
Zangler and they mirror each other's actions (
Pearl at one point
observing "I'm beside myself").
Barry "Doody" Pearl, Annette "Cha-Cha" Cardona and Eddie "Eugene" Deezen
were celebrity guests at the 2008 HOLLYWOOD SANTA PARADE in honor of the 30th
anniversary of Paramount's hit film, GREASE. The parade will air on LA TV sometime
before Christmas. Check local listings.
