I agree Nancy about Barry Manilow. I saw him in Vegas this summer, he looks so weird, and in person, he is tiny and frail...and freakish looking, but puts on a great show!
As for Coco, it is cute how Conan is a little embarrassed by that name. Robin Williams is great!!! He flipped off the powers that be a couple of times, he is so cool.
And...Andy trying to land a gig, any gig on tv. Like him saying "If you want me on one of those celebrity rehab shows, you name the drug and I will be addicted to it tomorrow!!" man, that was too funny!!
Last night I got a bit weepy watching the last Conan show. Tom Hanks was classic, it was a great show. His goodbye was really touching...
anyway...I watched him every night, or dvr'd him and watched next day. I am sick about this Leno thing...why couldn't he [Leno] just go away? really?
I would go to Hermosa beach several times each summer and on Sunday nights Leno would do stand up at the Hermosa Beach Magic and Comedy Store. He owns it I think...anyway it was always Sunday nights he would show up in a different car each time, or a motorcycle...cruise the streets around the place, just being kinda cool really, and he would be all casual and come onstage to try out jokes for week of shows, I had him talk to me about my profession one night, "I almost died when he picked me out of our table!
" because he was matching "pets with your profession" he got quite a kick out of that and making fun of our tables' combo's.....my best friend Beverly sitting next to me is a Manager of a restaurant and owns a tiny terrier...our other friend is a fight attendant and yeah, he has a poodle..his boyfriend (pilot) has a cat.. at the time I had my Rottweiler, "BJ"
I went to taping of Tonight Show with Leno, had a great time, and am sorry to never get that chance with Conan, because we were gonna go this late spring or summer.
So I am not a Leno hater, I just hate this situation that NBC has caused.
I think Conan is far funnier, far more talented, and really great guy. I hope he lands somewhere BIG and does very very well!!!
I joined the "I'm with Coco" group on facebook...cuz I am with CoCo...(and Andy)
