STAGE TUBE: Blue Man Group on The Celebrity Apprentice
The Blue Man Group made an appearance on the April 1 episode of The Celebrity Apprentice, helping the men's group raise money for its charity. The men's group includes Clay Aiken, Penn Jillette, Dee Snider and Arsenio Hall. Watch the video below to see how Aiken and others reacted when the blue men blew up cash-filled balloons!
Made famous by American Idol, Clay Aiken appeared on Broadway in Monty Python's Spamalot the musical.
In the Blue Man Group show, three enigmatic bald and blue characters take the audience through a multi-sensory experience that combines theater, percussive music, art, science and vaudeville into a form of entertainment that is like nothing else either on or off Broadway. The show's origins lead back to the late '80s, when longtime friends Chris Wink, Phil Stanton and Matt Goldman began to appear on the streets of Manhattan covered in blue make-up. The appearances led to a theatrical show, which premiered at La Mama, ETC and finally to off-Broadway's Astor Place Theatre in 1991. Since then, over 60 Blue Men have entertained crowds in New York, Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas and beyond.
On The Celebrity Apprentice, the celebrity contestants will work in two teams, each under the guidance of a designated project manager, to compete in business-driven tasks around New York City, using their fame, along with their proven business acumen, to win challenges. Contestants are subjected to long hours, grueling deadlines, intellectual challenges, personality clashes and intense scrutiny under the careful watch of Donald Trump and his advisors.
Certain challenges encourage contestants to reach out to their network of celebrity contacts for assistance or donations, leading to surprise visits by some of the world's biggest stars and pop culture icons.
Each task will end in the Board Room, where contestants must account for their actions and be judged by Trump and his advisors. Returning this season are Trump's children and colleagues, Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric.
