Mayor Bill de Blasio got some help from his famous friends Saturday as he lampooned himself during the annual Inner Circle showcase.

It was a who's who in the world of New York politics, as former politicians from Dinkins to D'Amato graced the red carpet.

Current administration officials were also on hand for the lampooning, as well as some familiar anchors and reporters.

The main event was performed in front of a packed crowd.

The mayor used some of his A-list celebrity pals to poke fun at several of his shortcomings, including snow removal.

de Blasio: According to the press, we have some kind of issue with snow. Do you have any experience removing snow?
Actor Steve Buscemi: Let's just say I've had some unwanted things removed, and leave it at that."

He even hit on topics like Dante's hair being more popular than his administration, and the ongoing question of whether the first family move to Gracie Mansion or not.

de Blasio: Really, it doesn't matter where we live?
First Lady Chirlane McCray: It really doesn't.
de Blasio: Baby, you're the greatest.

This year's show was called "Stuck with de Bill."

It poked fun at the mayor's efforts to combat income inequality by portraying him as a Robin Hood-type character.
