New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is already more of a jokester than his predecessors, casually threatening to striptease and yukking about his height at press conferences.

But during Inner Circle, an annual variety show put on by the city's political journalists, the new mayor will have to contend with the same shenanigans that had former Mayor Michael Bloomberg dancing and Rudy Giuliani in a dress.

A video posted Monday shows de Blasio "practicing" for his Inner Circle debut with actor Steve Buscemi, an early supporter of his campaign.

There are growls, spirit fingers and the signing of municipal labor contracts. (It's funny because the majority of city unions are still working without contracts.)


"Stuck with de Bill" will take place March 22.
