A Little Streetmosphere at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
By: Nick Maglio, co-author of the Disney Musings Blog
They perform largely improvised shows that are sometimes truly inspired. These shows are never the same twice, as they obviously change depending on what character is involved, and, of course, the audience participation.
My wife an I have personally been involved in one such performance!
I was picked out of the gathering crowd, as I am, of course, a “world famous actor” who has agreed to star in the world renowned director Flavio Fellini’s next movie.
There are many different shows and skits the Citizens perform throughout the day.
This one was early in the morning of our last trip. My wife and I were just finishing up our cupcakes at Starring Rolls, when many of the citizens walked, and rode by.
This is Officer Percival Peabody.
Also on our last trip, we saw the “Funniest Citizen in Hollywood Contest”, and it was great.
The host, Jack Diamond, asks a random guest what they did for a living, and an item they used for their job, and the citizens would then have to tell a joke based on that item, in the form of “99 (insert item here) walk into a bar, and are denied service by the bartender” joke.
The Citizens must come up with a funny one-liner to end the joke.
For instance, someone said they worked with electronics, and the item they used was a DVD.
“99 DVDs walk into a bar, and the bartender says, “We don’t serve your type in here, get out!” and the DVD says “Hey, you’re making me blue-Ray!
“Officer William Club, telling a joke.
Host Jack Diamond keeps the show rolling.
Bottom line, if you are in the Studios, and you see a Streetmosphere show starting, or just a lone Citizen, stop and take the time to enjoy one of the most unique and funny experiences Walt Disney World has to offer.
