Varla Jean Merman's Big Easy Awards video acceptance speech

Roberson couldn't attend last night's ceremony because he's currently rehearsing for the off Broadway show Lucky Guy, which opens for previews April 28 at New York's Little Shubert Theater. But Varla was kind enough to Skype us ("Like Oprah or whatever") from New York. Here's the video, which includes some special cameos:
