According to the Lawrence plays piano Tumblr site, Will Ferrell tested out his new, Broadway-bound George W. Bush material in a secret show at the Largo theater in Los Angeles on Sunday night. The play is set in the moments immediately following Barack Obama being sworn into office and presents a portrait of a newly unburdened and noticeably randy Bushie who, at one point, shows the audience pictures of his penis in slideshow form. But the review also contains several mentions to well-worn jokes about Dick Cheney shooting people in the face and jabs at  FEMA director Michael Brown, which leaves us no choice other than to stick to our original recommendation of just watching it on HBO instead.
