Normal Joe

July 1992

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 Shot." 

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 pilot.
