Late Late Show Highlights

The cold open from last night’s Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson was crazy enough to recommend:

Here were my favorite monologue jokes:

Two American icons celebrate birthday’s today. The one and only Statue of Liberty turns a hundred and twenty-seven years old. Happy birthday your….majesty. And then, of course, Bruce Jenner…also a hundred and twenty-seven years old. The Statue of Liberty and Bruce Jenner are very different, of course. One’s made of copper and steel and needs constant work done to prevent it from crumbling and cracking…and the other one is the Statue of Liberty.

A female bodybuilder in Britain took so many steroids she grew a penis. I know. It raises so many questions, like: where can I get these steroids?

The government has been spying on us. We all know that. But our government, apparently, has also been spying on Germans. I’m thinking what possible reason could we have for spying on the Germans? What did they ever do? Turns out the NSA have also been spying on other governments as well. Apparently we even tried listening in on the Canadians, but we didn’t learn anything because they speak too softly.

The comedy segment bits were a call from room service and “Tweetmail”. It was definitely amusing enough to waste your time on:

Katey Sagal was the first couch guest. She’s on the show Sons of Anarchy and is also releasing a new album soon. The interview was good. Katey was nice, engaging and had a great sense of humor. I really enjoyed watching the two of them talk. Craig’s comedy was solid and Katey’s laugh was warm and genuine. It was fun to watch. Here’s the interview:


Richard Curtis was the second couch guest. He wrote and directed the new film About Time. The interview was fine. Richard was relaxed, pleasant and kindhearted. He and Craig are very old friends, so their conversation was persona and probably would have been the same if there hadn’t been an audience present. Maybe that’s why I didn’t like it more. With most interviews the audience at least feels like it’s ok to be in the same room with the host and the guest. This one felt more like we were spying on them.

The closing segment was too quick to care about.

Entertaining show. I give it:
