Wayne Brady’s improv and rap using words from the crowd (you try making filibuster cool) and Prince impersonations were hilarious. Speaker John Boehner was dry but still had some funny moments. The Howard University Thunder Machine drum line was off the charts and kept the party hopping.
NBC Washington was well represented too. Special thanks to my guest Jermaine Paul, Season 2 Winner of The Voice. He was a star in the crowd.. graciously taking pictures with his Washington fans.
My guest The Voice’s Jermaine Paul with Congressman Jim Clyburn. Look for Jermaine’s single “Butterfly Kisses” which comes out Father’s Day!
