    • The parrot in the Robinson Crusoe sketch is She McGee, a 35-year-old "actress" owned and trained by Beth Dannaldson. The bird marks $35 to $50 dollars a day plus a stipend for her owner. She was sprayed orange for this appearance since her natural green colors blended into the jungle foliage.
