You’ve seen Leno. You’ve seen Fallon. The “man on the street” sketch is always a hit. Take a camera, put people on the spot with a question, and see what you get. (For instance, have Mets pitcher Matt Harvey go as a normal newscaster asking New Yorkers what they think of pitcher Matt Harvey.)
This past weekend, I decided to try it for myself in what is the first ever “friar on the street.” There was one difference, though (besides the habit and drastically lower budget!): instead of me asking strangers questions, I asked parishioners of St. Francis of Assisi parish to approach me with their questions. Anything that wanted to know about me or the friars. What could go wrong?!
I hope you have as much fun watching this segment of “Ask Br. Casey” ON LOCATION as we did filming it. Be sure to ask your own questions in the comments for the regular segment returning next week!
