In the back, behind the glass, Tammy Fae Bakker! Who has actually been proven to be Elvis!

Yes, we’re almost over with this fabulous, fabulous evening.. Wait. I’m braking down, because there’s a guy in the booth going.. [ motions ] “Five more minutes! Five more minutes!”

An incredible evening, we’ve raised over $4 million for The Knicks! Thank you! Those phones are ringing – for the National Tourette’s Foundation! [ twitches ]
