The Worst Talent Show...Ever!

After a lengthy stay in rehab for her marshmallow addiction, Persi is trying to make a comeback as the emcee of a new TV talent show, "Shooting for the Stars." The lineup includes a "singing" alien, a wrestler who wrestles himself, the Wheelbarrow Dancin' Guys, a yodeler, a guy with a lampshade on his head, and many others. In the end, the heckler may be the most entertaining part of this show, which should be called, "Shooting at the Stars"!
