I've always been a fan of Jesco's. Sure he's a good dancer, but I like his story telling better.

Hope that documentary makes it to MTV. Maybe he'll get a good payday from it.

Has the documentary already been filmed? I enjoyed the first one so much, I would like to know when this one will be available for the public!

The way I read it they filmed it and are trying to sell it to MTV. So maybe we'll see it or maybe not. Maybe it'll be a flop like when Roseanne saw his tattoos and got mad a shortened his apperance on her show. Wasn't his fault, he didn't even know what the tattoo meant.

What was this about? What kind of tatoo did he have?

Jesco Goes to Hollywood is the document of his journey. It has more of a narrative structure than the first film: Jesco and filmmaker Young get on a plane and fly to Hollywood, where Jesco dances down the Avenue of Stars and appears on the TV show. The producers of Roseanne wouldn't allow Young to include the actual scene in this film, but we see plenty of the
rehearsal, including Jesco dancing while Dweezil Zappa plays "Wildwood Flower" on guitar. "I thought his name was Weasel," Jesco says.

A couple of the more affecting moments come when Jesco is getting makeup applied for the first time in his life, before the show; and afterward when he goes to a tattoo parlor to get a crude jailhouse swastika covered. Roseanne and Tom, both Jewish, were shocked at the tattoo, but Arnold quickly realized that Jesco didn't really understand the symbol's significance. He hands Jesco a wad of bills and directs him to the Hollywood Boulevard shop where he and Roseanne both had numerous tattoos applied, and Jesco emerges with three huge roses covering most of his hand and wrist.
