Steve Breen posted the photo below on Facebook with the caption: “Renowned Irish singer and Bono.”
In an email, he tells me that the Bono in the photo is an impersonator – a dead-ringer if you ask me.
But Dan Piraro, creator of Bizarro, did meet a REAL celebrity. He writes on his blog that while touring a Simpsons reading with Tom Gammill, he ran into Ricky Gervais.
As we were wrapping up and about to go home, our friend said let?s pop in here and see if anyone is recording anything. We ventured into a building and up to a second-floor sound recording studio where actors do the voices for the show. We first stopped in at the green room, a small room down the hall where guest stars are located before they record. There, sitting in a chair just like a completely normal person, was none other than Ricky Gervais, my personal hero in the field of dramatized comedy! I was beside myself.
