A to Z Challenge: A is for Adam West

I can't believe I am actually participating in this challenge. I hope I can make it all the way through. I'm going to need lots of Red Bull. My theme for this challenge is fictional characters including but not limited to cartoons, tv shows, video games, movies, books, etc. Now let's have some fun.

I, PTM, have commandeered the show Inside the Actor's Studio hosted by James Lipton for the A to Z challenge. James is safely being held prisoner until May. He will get plenty of food and water, no need to call the cops. For the month of April, I am renaming his show to Inside the Fictional Character's Studio.

My first guest is Adam West. I know what you are thinking already: Adam West is a real actor, he isn't fictional. While you are right about that, I am not interviewing Adam West the human, I am interviewing Adam West, the fictional mayor from the tv show Family Guy. Let's get started.

PTM: Thanks you Mayor West for being here today.
Adam West: Where is the fruit salad? You promised there would be fruit salad.
PTM: There was a giant bowl in your dressing room.
Adam West: I get a dressing room?
PTM: Of course you do, every guest has the privilege of using our dressing room as their own. Where did you get dressed and ready?
Adam West: In the bathroom stall like I usually do. I'm not allowed to have a dressing room on Family Guy after what happened last time.
PTM: I know I am going to regret asking this but what happened last time?
Adam West: I tried making 10 lbs of spaghetti in the bathtub and clogged the drain.
PTM: Yup, I regret asking. Well you can use the dressing room here after the interview, just no making any pasta. You have been Mayor for awhile, do you have any future plans to run for President?
Adam West: No but I am going to run for Queen of England in the next election.
PTM: Good luck with that, I hope you win. What is your biggest fear?
Adam West: That Richard Simmons is going to be hiding in my closet when we aren't playing Hide and Seek.
PTM: I would be afraid of that too, now I am going to have nightmares.
Adam West: When do I get to spin the wheel?
PTM: Adam, this isn't a game show. You are on a talk show. We are in the middle of an interview.
Adam West: I'm ready for my nap. (He curls up into a ball on the floor and falls asleep)
PTM: I need to start pre-screening these guests. I guess we are done. Good night folks.

Wonder if Richard Simmons owns real clothes other than short shorts?

You captured Adam West perfectly. I'd love to interview Adam West... but Family Guy Adam West. I'm sure regular Adam West is just a boring old man, and therefore only likes to talk about woodworking and his grandchildren.

Great start to the challenge! The interview style is neat. Who will be next?

Mark said...

Don't forget he was in Fairly Odd Parents too. Adam West is actually my favourite Family Guy character.

Hopefully no one wakes him before the next election.

Birgit said...

Didn't you know that Adam West the (so-called) actor is really made of plastic and Burt Ward animates him...scray tain't it. No 5 questions? Would love to know his favourite swear word

Adam said...

he's awesome, he might be old as time now but he hasn't changed.

Pat Tillett said...

I want him to be queen of England!
Nice start PTM...

Al Diaz said...

I think he would be a cool queen of England. This was fun to read!

Powdered Toast Type Dude!

What are you doing? Okay, even though I thought you started this creepy challenge from the letter "Z" and worked backwards, I now realise that you start with "A". What was I thinking...

So "B" is for "Batman"?

Right, I'm outta' here..

Chuck said...

I forgot West was the mayor of Family Guy...or was he??? This is going to be a great theme. You got the demented Adam down perfectly...I can almost. hear. his voice.

That was really funny. I didn't get at my comments until late, bed time so it was a good laugh to end the evening.
