Blue Man Group was referenced in a storyline of the TV series Arrested Development.
Blue Man Group grew out of a collaboration between three close friends, Chris Wink, Matt Goldman and Phil Stanton, on Manhattan’s Lower East Side in 1988. It originated as a celebration to the end of the 1980s. The three men wore blue masks and led a procession that included the burning of a Rambo doll and a piece of the Berlin Wall. The stunt caught the attention of MTV’s Kurt Loder, who covered the event, and the strange Blue Men gained attention. The Blue Man character emerged from small `disturbances` on the streets of the city, growing into small shows at downtown clubs, eventually becoming a full performance at the Astor Place Theatre in 1991.
