Raunchy roast for Assembly Speaker Perez

Wednesday, June 1, 2011

image Capitol Alert’s Torey Van Oot says from the time Assemblyman and veteran stand-up comic Tom Ammiano (pictured) asked if anyone had an “objection to the f-bomb” the tone was pretty much set for last night’s raunchy roast of Assembly Speaker John A. Perez. The “XXX” rated affair was to promote programs to engage youths in public policy issues, she says.

Among the highlights: A trio of assembly members, including San Francisco’s Fiona Ma and Berkeley’s Nancy Skinner, performed a “tone-deaf but spirited rendition” of “Johnny’s Got a Gun.”

Among printable jokes: GOP Democratic Assemblyman Bob Blumenfield got in a dig about the Speaker’s recently-revealed inflated resume: "You know why he supported the Dream Act? Because he once had a dream he graduated from Berkeley.”
