THE BIG MIKE ROAD SHOW - 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY PICS ON PG 769


Recommended Posts

Hello Valuable Big Mike Readers!!!!

 

Wow, we have now finished 7 full weeks of daily Big Mike Road Show updates, minus the one week vacation to Cancun!

 

This puts us at 35 new 2012 updates so far, on a goal of hitting 200 for the year, so we are already 1/6 of the way there!!!

 

 

I think it is a great time to tell the full story on how Big Mike got to guest star on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and let all the new Theme Park Review people who have joined since 2008 a chance to witness the moment of greatness! Honestly, the clip NEVER gets old since it is pure gold comic genius from The Mighty Big Man and you can watch it again and again and still laugh every time, or at least Big Mike does!

 

 

THE STORY

 

Big Mike was visiting California once again while he was "Traveling The World Riding Roller Coasters"!

 

While at Universal Studios in Hollywood, Big Mike was sitting on a bench wearing his Official Big Mike Road Show T-Shirt and updating his thread on TPR on his smart phone.

 

Two men come up to Big Mike while his head is down and say hello and ask about the T-shirt and the story behind it.

 

I proudly tell the men that I am Big Mike and travel to all parts of the World riding as many diferent roller coasters as I can.

 

The men are so interested in Big Mike's story and accomplishments that they proceed to tell The Mighty Big Man that they are producers of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and they are looking for very interesting people such as myself to be on TV with Jay Leno.

 

I, of course, am totally interested in finding more ways to promote The Big Mike Road Show, so I tell them that I will help THEM out by appearing.

 

They give me tickets and tell me to show up at the studio early, but don't get in line, go in the VIP section.

 

I have a few hours to spare, so I give a call to Robb and tell him the news and he spreads the word that Big Mike will be appearing tonight!

 

Big Mike arrives at the studio and goes straight past the huge line to get in, and is greeted by the same two guys at the VIP area. "Hey Big Mike" they say, obviously seeing the star quality in The Big Man!

 

The producers give me a card and ask me to memorize it, and make sure that I am not wearing my Big Mike Road Show T-Shirt, which was not allowed for some reason. Booooooo. They also say no cameras, to which I said double boooooo.

 

Anyway, Big Mike learns his lines and is told to say where I work and make sure I also include that I "Travel the World Riding Roller Coasters", and not to vary from that what so ever.

 

The producers then tell me that Jay will ask me about The Big Mike Road Show and then move on to the question I ask.

 

Big Mike is escorted in via the VIP entrance and guided to his pre-selected seat, so that Jay will know exactly where The Big Man is sitting.

 

The show starts and Big Mike is ready to go!

 

Our skit finally starts and Big Mike is true to his word, saying exactly what was planned. Jay, however, decides to have a little fun at The Big Man's expense, and instead of asking questions about The Big Mike Road Show like I was told, decides to throw a couple zinger insults Big Mike's way!

 

The crowd laughs, Jay is amused, and Big Mike figures out that he has been had and is only there for star power and to be the butt of Jay's jokes.

 

Little does Jay know, Big Mike is pretty quick and smart on his feet, and the joke is about to backfire in his face thanks to The Mighty Big Man!

 

Big Mike may not have gotten a chance to hype The Big Mike Road Show as originally planned ,but he was going to make damn sure that Jay's little skit came to a crash and burn also as payback for the insults!

 

Big Mike tanked the rest of the skit, making believe he forgot his lines and then completely throwing Jay for a loop by asking the original question after Jay had already finished his skit. This moment was a majestic masterpiece, as you can hear Jay just stumble for a loss of words as Big Mike gets his revenge!

 

For what it is worth, Jay did come over and laugh about it with good ole Big Mike while the musical act was on, so we are on good terms!

 

 

I hope everyone enjoys this classic comedy and if you want to see more Big Mike entertainment, click this link for a summary of ALL of the first 35 brand new episodes of 2012 on The Big Mike Road Show, SO MANY fun things to see!!!!!!!

Big Mike does three things well!

1. Travels and rides many coasters in many countries.

2. Will always get the last laugh.

3. Too X-rated to tell on TPR!

 

 

Hope you enjoyed!

 

Peace, Big Mike

OMG! You people with the 7th duck! No matter how hard I try, I just can not convince myself that one is a duck!

 

With that being said, lock me in for 6 ducks please.

Locked in!

 

Alright, I'm coming in last minute from a hockey game tonight and cutting it close on time. I'm 100% sure that I see 6 duckies, and I'm about 95% sure that I see 7 duckies. With that being said, please lock me in for 7 duckies!

This round of Find the Ducky is now closed!!

 

I admit I was baffled with all the 3 and 4 ducky guesses, but the strategic players were holding out their guesses!

 

You can now show all the hiding places!

 

Peace, Big Mike

I didn’t see the one on the rock by Manta, didn’t see the one over the Jazzy Jellies sign, didn’t see the one on the Budweiser wheel (although I kept thinking I was missing something in that picture!)

 

I've been pretty good at this so far with at least being in the right ballpark, but this time I was just being blind I guess. White ducky doesn't like me.
