Lee Tergesen appeared in a play called "Normal
Joe" at the Lost Studio on La
Brea Avenue in Los Angeles. The show started at 10:30 p.m. July 1992,
prompting the LA Times to write: "Late-night theater often operates in its own goofy zone."
Normal Joe was written and directed by Dan Bell -- the other
long-haired headbanger with Lee in "Wayne's
World." Bell also wrote and directed "The
Ted Raimi (who also was in "The Shot") plays a
"nerdish, single accountant," who is "one funny
guy," according to the L.A. Times.
The Times writes further:
The accountant is "haunted by a sexist,
jive-baiting alter ego (Lee Tergesen) whose screaming head keeps
popping through round holes in the canvas set, like the kind you
throw baseballs at on the midway. A smitten Tracey Arnold is the
yearning girl in heat and the revolting, plaid-suited Mickey Swenson
is the gauche boss. It's all silly enough to make you light-headed
but not original enough to be a genuine diversion."
- Dan Bell directed a TV pilot of "Normal Joe" for MTV
Productions in 1998. It was a half-hour live-action/animated/claymation
