VIDEO: HAMILTON's Leslie Odom, Jr., as Aaron Burr, Jokes With Hillary Clinton and Bill de Blasio at Inner Circle Show
An annual event since 1923, the New York City Inner Circle Show is a charity comedy bash created by the city's news journalists to roast Gotham's local politicians. It's a no-hold-barred affair that can get a little nasty at times, and the mayor is always handed the finale for a rebuttal.
At this year's show, held on Friday, New York's Mayor Bill de Blasio partook in a sketch where he goes back in time in a search for Alexander Hamilton, but instead finds himself being advised on how to incorporate hip-hop into his administration by HAMILTON's own Aaron Burr, Leslie Odom, Jr.
Before it's over, Hillary Clinton gets into the act with a few words of advice for the mayor.
