Dave Letterman and SNL mock Rudy Giuliani's son

Dave Letterman and SNL mock Rudy Giuliani’s son

Posted on

Farewell, Chelsea Clinton: America has found a new political scion to parody. When New York City’s new mayor, Rudolph Giuliani, delivered his inaugural address earlier this month, his 7-year-old son, Andrew, stole the show by waving to the crowd and mugging for the cameras. Since then, Andrew has been profiled on Inside Edition and PrimeTime Live, impersonated on David Letterman’s Late Show, and lampooned on Saturday Night Live.

”He should get a good agent,” advises Ruth Hansen, vice president of the Gold/Marshak talent agency. ”He’s a natural, so I would have him play himself in a movie. My second choice would be a guest spot on a TV series.” So far, Andrew’s dad is trying to keep a lid on his son’s potential career. His office has turned down a dozen or so requests for Andrew to appear on everything from CNN to Late Show. ”He doesn’t want to give Andrew further political strength,” muses a Giuliani spokesman. ”There’s a chance Andrew might challenge him for reelection in 1997.”
