And in a JellyVision Show exclusive we reveal the identity of the mystery man who has been leaving extremely generous tips at restaurants around the country. We first found learned of this from Gawker. Known only as @tipsforJesus, theories have run wild about the identity and motivation behind tips ranging from $500-$10,000. A rich religious fanatic spreading the word of Jesus? NOPE. Nothing could be further from the truth! Mortimer P. HighBottom is a dying rich man simply honoring the memory of his best friend and gardener, Jesus, who he accidentally ran over with his tricked out Rascal and killed in August.
We even surprise Mortimer with White Wanda and Tomato a waitress and dishwasher from The Cindy Dee Diner in West Virginia. Wanda is actually upset because she only got a $500 tip from Mortimer and the shocking reasons are revealed.
Not White Wanda's Tip
Special thanks to the talented DC area improvisers Mark Johnson (Mortimer Highbottom), Erin Hayes (White Wanda & Ghost of Jesus) and Michael McFarland (Tomato).
