The Night Shift

Stephen Colbert, David Letterman, Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien

These are some of the guys who snicker you off to sleep at night. A few of my thoughts here -

Colbert must have a very high IQ. He's not only very knowledgeable, but quick on his feet. I often think the average news program is so padded with fluff and lazy reporting that you'd be better off watching something like The Colbert Report for your news. At least it advertises itself as a comedy program.

Anyway, I'm probably a Letterman guy myself, I just like how odd the man is. I actually like playing "Will It Float?" and I always stay up and watch the show when they they hurl stuff off of the roof :) I'm still trying to figure out how to do that little pencil trick of Dave's.

Jay Leno is cool too, his "Headlines" segment on Mondays is always a sure bet for laughs. His "Jaywalking" segments are pretty much a service to America, showing that a good number of Americans are clueless about politics, the Bible, and the world around them.

I like Conan O'Brien because he can pretty much walk his way into any situation and wrestle it into something funny. His little dances and silly voices are icing on the cake. It's too bad Jay is leaving The Tonight Show, but Conan should fill the spot as well as anyone could.

Anyway, it's time for me to say g'night!

UPDATE -
Craig Ferguson is here

  2. Conan was once a writer for the simpsons. I think that's pretty relevant to your project here.

    As for Bill Maher, it's HBO so it doesn't count. :)

  16. The eyebrow on Colbert is what sells it.

    Fantastic, all of them.

  17. even though he was already simpsonised, you can't do colbert w/o stewart. come on!

    the colbert one is the best. the eyebrow is the winning touch.

  18. Thanks, anonymous, for the link to Jon Stewart on the Simpsons, but he doesn't have legs like the other punx. Please do Jon Stewart so I may add him to my collection (that I have printed out, pasted on cardboard, and attached to my computer monitor :-)
    These are all great, Dean, thanks!
