Clay Aiken – An Improv Star!


I used think of April 15th as Income Tax Day.  But, now I have a more exciting event to remember and it changes my outlook of the day.  On April 15, 2012, it was the 9th episode of Celebrity Apprentice and Clay Aiken showed off his skill as a puppeteer.

The task for the week was fun.  The teams had to design two original puppets and then perform in front of a live, adult audience.  They worked with Henson’s Alternative’s Improvisational Troupe called “Stuffed and Unstrung”.

This was the first time that Clay was on a new team.  To equal out the teams, he was moved to team Forte.  The project managers for this task were:

  1. Unanimous – Paul Teutul, Sr.
  2. Forte – Lisa Lampanelli

The evening was filled with the typical Celebrity Apprentice back-stabbing, insults, shouting, and tears.  However, Clay out-shone all the others as he proved that his improvisational skills were amazingly good and his ability to use different voices was outstanding. It was not a surprise when Team –Forte was declared the winner of the 9th episode.

The final results of Celebrity Apprentice were so disappointing and difficult to understand.  For that reason, I am only just now beginning to remember all the wonderful things that we saw because Clay was on the show.  Certainly, the Puppet Episode is one of the best!
