Some clips I did “hosting” an episode of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN CELEBRATE YOUR BIRTHDAY, a parody of SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, for a friend’s birthday party that I couldn’t attend because I was touring with RENT. Jed Resnick is the SYTYCCYB dancer. There were “Happy Birthday” clips from the cast interspersed, but I removed them so it’s just my hosting parts.
