NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Sometimes, art imitates… art.

At the annual Inner Circle charity dinner Saturday, Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s arrival on stage was gripped by technical difficulties.

Bloomberg was dressed as “Spider-Mike” in the annual comedy event, in which journalists and politicians take humorous jabs at each other.

While being lowered to the stage in a harness, Bloomberg got stuck.

Watch Highlights Of The Mayor’s Performance

The “glitch” was a nod to the troubles of “Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark.”

During the show, Bloomberg’s administration was razzed for the recent snow debacle, the hiring of Cathie Black and his relationship with the press.
