BILLY MAHONEY MEETS MR. VEGA$
My buddy Sam and I decided to go on a trip to Las Vegas. I suggested to him that I bring my video camera and make up a "Billy Mahoney" comedy while going to Vegas and finish it during our stay at The Rio Casino Hotel. He was all for it. The rest is history. It's probably one of the funniest episodes of the series. The only part that was scripted was where the hookers come to the suite. That part was added in eight years later. I had access to a hotel in Liverpool, New York, and I finally linked the desperately needed chain, since the story was so lacking women. In the film, all Mr. Vegas does is call hookers to the suite and in the original version we never shot any women for the sequence. I had such a feeling of relief after getting this done.
