Gregor’s playoff beard, or “A classic comedy roast of Mayor Gregor Robertson”

I really will use any excuse to recycle this image that I photoshopped of our mayor, Gregor Robertson, sporting a ridiculous playoff beard a couple years back. If you think this image gives him a bit of a ribbing just wait until you see what the creators of CTV’s The Party and S**tHarperDid.com have got in store for the guy this Thursday at Club 560 as a part of the OLIO Festival! That group wrote all the jokes, and many of them are playing characters in the roast. There are also actual friends and colleagues of Gregor’s who are going to roast him, and some surprises too!

While we’re posting fake photos of the mayor we might as well throw in a fake quote for good measure. Read this as if he’s saying it through that big beard: “I’m excited for the potluck on Thursday night. I’ve never brought my homemade organic vegetarian beef stew to a club before. Wait, it’s a roast. Oh sh*t. I’m F’d!”

HERE is the Facebook event page.
