Alice Cooper brought his distinctive stage personality to the role of King Herod on Sunday night’s live production of Jesus Christ Superstar on NBC. (Note how the extras are bowing down. I wonder if they were saying “I am not worthy” like Wayne and Garth?)
However, if you enjoyed Alice’s performance, see how you think it stacked up against this British version from 2000. Here, King Herod is played by Rik Mayall, the British comic you may recall seeing in the 80s on the cult Brit sit-com The Young Ones on MTV (or in the movie Drop Dead Fred).
