From 1999 to 2001 opening many a CRIME SCENE evening as
daft newsman/commentator "Brad Friedman"...

The inept, frequently right-wing, "reporter" pictured here with "Bill Clinton".

My first appearance in CRIME SCENE was a moderately amusing "news commentary" on the Columbine Shootings which was a cold opener to that week's show. It was delivered just a day or two after the shootings had occurred, and the idea of finding - somehow - any humor in that event, at that moment, was both terrifying and terrifically fun.

Being able to respond quickly on stage - usually in some horrifically politically incorrect way - to current events each week, became one of my favorite aspects of CRIME SCENE. Because of the weekly format, we were often able to get some pretty wicked topical satire up and on stage just hours after a big news event would occur (as we did, for example, the evening we re-enacted the snatching of Elian Gonzalez by the FBI just hours after the story broke earlier that Saturday morning).

Several of the shocking and appalling "This Week in Crime" essays and video bits from "CRIME SCENE 2000: The Race to the Whitehouse" (CS2K: TRTTW) are available to peruse online....
