CHATSWORTH, Calif.—What’s it like to watch a pornified version of yourself? Just ask Robert Ben Garant, a cast member of Reno 911, who saw New Sensations’ Reno 911: A XXX Parody at a Hollywood comedy club along with his fellow cast members. After the screening, Garant said, “To see yourself portrayed in high def, only you’ve got a 20-inch schlong, you feel like you can go back home and conquer Hollywood.”
Described as a roast, the screening was held at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre Los Angeles and was covered by TMZ, which aired a portion on its broadcast show. (Click here to download the clip). The sold-out event raised funds for charity.
Garant’s character, Deputy Travis Junior, was portrayed by the well-endowed Mr. Pete. Thomas Lennon, also in attendance at Upright Citizens Brigade, was similarly impressed by his porn counterpart’s appendage. Speaking about Jack Lawrence, who portrayed the X-rated version of Lennon’s Lt. Dangle character, Lennon said, “Seriously, we’re talking a foot. Because those guys don’t show up if it’s not a foot. If it’s 11 and a half inches, they just stay in bed.”
Joining Garant and Lennon at the screening were Joe Lo Truglio, Kerri Kenney-Silver, Niecy Nash, Carlos Alazraqui, Cedric Yarbrough, Ian Roberts and Nick Swardson.
During the roast, the cast was full of praise for Reno 911: A XXX Parody and its adult cast. Garant stated, “When we found out there was a porn parody of our show being done by New Sensations, we contacted them immediately and said …” Lennon interjected, “ ... we need like 10 copies of that right away; for research purposes.”
New Sensations president Scott Taylor said, “When we first started making adult parodies, the idea of showing them to the original creators and cast was the farthest thing from our minds. The roast illustrates how integrated our movies at New Sensations have become with popular culture.”
Two weeks ago, Reno 911: A XXX Parody was featured in a sketch from mainstream comedy website FunnyOrDie.com, which also featured Lennon and Garant.
After first watching the trailer for Reno 911: A XXX Parody on New Sensations’ YouTube.com page, Robert Ben Garant posted, “Wow. I have never been so proud. This is like winning an Oscar. An Oscar you can rub one out to.”
