When the art department had to do a parody set of ‘Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader’ I was tempted to call my friend Barry Poznick, who created and Executive Produces the show, to get a tour of the stage and steal some ideas. Instead I chose to just watch the show and do the sketch below. Again, we (Bianca, Josh and Shane) pulled this one together in a day and had to set it up and strike it in front of the studio audience while Robert Morton looked at his watch.
