Show In The Hallway Episode 6 (S2)

From The Producers of the Howard Stern Tv Show

A few real life events led to the conception of the final episode of season 2, “In The Bag”. For example one part of the story really did happen. Sal drove into Manhattan on a weekend and parked in the parking garage where Gary parks. When Sal went to pay the attendant told him he can park in Gary’s spot for free because Gary is never in on the weekends. After this true event Sal imagined it could be easy for him rent out Gary’s parking spot for half price. Sal didn’t do this but it did inspire one of the storylines for “In The Bag.”

The second real life event that impacted this episode was the chance meeting of one of the actors. Co-director Jason Katz and I were walking through Penn Station when we met Alex, a midget street performer dressed like Michael Jackson and dancing to his songs. This was months before season 2 was even in pre-production but we both know we had to have Little Alex on the second season. Alex didn’t speak English too well and it was tough getting a hold of him on the phone. There were times when he wouldn’t return our calls for weeks and we were worried we might miss out on the chance to work with him. Alex finally got in touch with us and it’s a good thing he did because he delivered a few of the funniest images in “Show In The Hallway” history.
