Alec Baldwin Hosts a Night of Bad Parenting Stories
Alec Baldwin took a break from his duties as Saturday Night Live‘s resident President Trump on March 23 to take the stage at Carolines on Broadway to host Bad Parent with Alec Baldwin, a live stand-up show exploring the ups and downs of parenthood with personal stories from comedians Karen Bergreen, Tom Cotter, Drew Fraser, Judy Gold, and Caroline Rhea. Baldwin hosted the show, which was presented by WNYC Studios. Rhea joked: “I had my daughter at 44 and now I’m 38. But I really don’t have any bad parenting stories because…I’m in denial.” She told of how her daughter was conceived during a Giants Super Bowl victory and quipped: “I love Eli Manning. We have a lot in common… we both know what it’s like to score with only seconds left on the clock.” America’s Got Talent runner-up Cotter, father of twins, joked: “My wife and I always dreamed of having twins. Only I thought it would be the Olsen Twins in a hot tub.” Bergreen took shots at her own kids:“Mommy when I grow up, if I don’t have a baby, you’re just going to be an old lady… and I said you’re right, and instinct tells me with that level of charm, you’re going to be my roommate.” Gold lamented about her son wanting to get a tattoo of their zip code on his bicep. “Henry! You’re Jewish! You are not getting numbers tattooed on your arm!” Baldwin, who appeared to be having a ball on stage, teased the possibility of more themed stand-up shows in the future. Portions of the Bad Parent show will be broadcast on WNYC Radio.
