New York mayor spoofs 'Spider-Man' musical

"Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark" has seen its share of troubles with the frequent postponements and injured cast members.

The Broadway show can now add being spoofed by the mayor of New York City to the list of notable events.

On Sunday, Mayor Michael Bloomberg donned a Spidey suit for a skit at the Inner Circle comedy show. The annual event is staged by City Hall reporters, and according to the New York Post, Bloomberg got in on the fun.

After the mayor swooped in on a wire, he hung in the air mimicking the technical difficulty actors for the actual show have endured.

"Will I be up here long?" Bloomberg asked.

"No," a stagehand said. "We just have to issue an RFP, get three bona-fide bids, go before the community board, submit a ULURP application, and do an environmental-impact statement - and we'll have you down and you can grab the train home," the stagehand joked, poking fun at the city's building process.

    Would have been really funny if the cable broke and the mayor pancaked! Only mildly amusing so far. Next!
