One ding…

We outliers of the world who get you–who love you–will miss you more than Geoff misses his penis.

See you on the other side!

Flip the switch

This clip from Late Show with David Letterman has been circling around the Interwebs today and made me laugh.

Of course it did.  It’s a classic Stupid Pet Trick.

Now…didn’t that do you some good?

We’re really nice

While this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live with guest host Charlize Theron won’t go on any “Best of” lists, there was one Digital Short that is getting a lot of attention.

SNLTourists

 

In “Tourists,” SNL cast members (including Theron) dressed up as — you got it — tourists and pranked the good people of New York City with indecipherable questions, unknown accents, picture taking confusion and general craziness.

It was very funny.

And I want to point out — despite all the weirdness that SNL threw at them, every New Yorker really tried to help them out.

Points for us!

Seven months and counting

bucketDuring last night’s tweets and emails segment on Late Late Show, a viewer asked Craig:

If I’m not famous before your last show in December, can I still be a guest?

Craig said yes.

BUCKET LIST!!!

 

 

To the letter

david lettermanHere’s to you, David Letterman –

The late night host of my generation.

Sure, I’m old enough to remember Johnny Carson.  I was even old enough to be indignant when Johnny chose Jay Leno to take over his desk instead of Dave when he retired.

‘Cause Dave was the new guard…and Jay was just more of the same.

Dave threw things off of the top of tall buildings just to watch them explode. Dave made celebrities out of the neighborhood deli employees long before Jimmy Kimmel made his parking attendant Guillermo a star. Dave was surly and controversial and random (well, before he had a child).

He made it okay for late night hosts to be unique and adventurous.

That’s why his future replacement should honor his philosophy — already does, in fact, by blowing up the idea of what a late night show should be every single night:

Craig-Ferguson-Doctor-Who Yes, you heard me right.

Craig Ferguson

And if he keeps the show here in New York City, I will be very, very, very excited.

Very. Excited.

Squeak!!

 

 

 

More Craig!

Guess who’s going to be hosting another show on television this fall?

craig celebrity name game

One of Craig’s guests mentioned it on Late Late Show Monday; he confirmed it; and the Google machine had the detes.

Celebrity Name Games is based on the board game “Identity Crisis.” Contestants partner with celebrity guests to guess famous identities from clues provided.  And with Craig as host, you know there will be lots of improvised fun.

It’s syndicated, so cross your fingers that it will be showing in your market.

(Mine are braided.)

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon just keeps finding more and more ways to get their audience involved in the show.

Hashtags. Screen grabs. Instagrams.

The show producers always pick the funniest ones…and who doesn’t like the idea of maybe seeing their idea on the show?

(One day)

But think about it — we are creating content for Jimmy.  Entire segments of the show.  He gets thousands of entries, all written by us — the audience — for free. Oh well, it does give him and his staff more time to focus on new parody songs, shows and series.

Still.  Brilliant way to play us, Jimmy.
