Late Late Show Highlights

The cold open from last night’s Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson was terrific:

Here were my favorite monologue jokes:

There are two very big showbiz birthdays today: Victoria Beckman, aka Posh Spice, and Daffy Duck. It is, it’s Daffy Duck’s birthday. Daffy Duck is seventy-six today. Looks good for his age. It must be true what they say, “Quack don’t crack.”

Posh Spice and Daffy Duck are very different, of course. One is a gorgeous diva whose sexy ass has haunted my dreams, and the other one’s Posh Spice.

I don’t care what you say; Daffy Duck is much edgier than Donald Duck. I’ve heard the argument, “But Craig, Donald Duck doesn’t wear pants.” Daffy Duck doesn’t wear a @#$%^&* thing! Nothing! Daffy Duck’s got the full monty. He lets the feathers feel the weathers, if you know what I’m saying.

And, in terms of personality, Daffy is set apart by his bad attitude. He doesn’t care if people don’t like him. And he screams at anyone who gets in his way. He’s kinda my hero. He’s right up there as one of my favorite cartoon characters. You know, right there with Scooby Doo and Joe Biden.

The comedy segment was Tweetmail. It was just enjoyably goofy enough to recommend:

Melissa Rauch was the first couch guest. She is one of the stars on The Big Bang Theory. The interview was ok. I like Melissa, I think she’s a neat person and talented actress. That said, I just couldn’t get into the topics of conversation Craig choose or the answers she gave. Still, you might enjoy them more, so here’s the interview:

Brad Goreski was the second couch guest. He stars on the show It’s A Brad Brad World. The interview was very good. Knowing nothing about Brad other than he’s in the fashion industry, I initially did not have high hopes for this segment. However, as soon as he and Craig started chatting I no longer had to worry. Brad was pleasant and the conversation was fun. Here’s the interview:

The closing segment super quick and forgettable.

Fine show. I give it:
