Robert Smigel and Dino Stamatopoulos showed their Bozo parody at the Lake Shore Theater this week in conjunction with Just for Laughs. The pilot, which has been leaked to the internets, spoofs Bob Bell's version of the character he did on WGN and features the original TV Funhouse cartoons. Fox rejected it years ago, but last night, Smigel said Comedy Central is interested in doing the show.
