Here is a great little comedy/humor break for all of you readers out there. I’ve been watching a lot of Craig Ferguson’s stuff lately and I ran across a very funny series of YouTube clips with guest-sidekick Thomas Lennon. Tom creates the bizarre character of Khloe Banderas, a gay Spaniard who is the least famous brother of Antonio Banderas. It’s even funnier considering that Tom is just creating the voice and basic hand movements of Craig’s robot skeleton sidekick.
It is absolutely amazing the humor they come up with purely through a few basic early thematic choices and then constant improvisation thereafter. Enjoy!
Tom Lennon’s first appearance on the show:
Three follow-up appearances at the end of the month:
Thomas, writer on the blog “the quiet voice”, recently posted some thoughts on alcohol and immorality. It made me think of Craig Ferguson, host of the late night talk show “The Late Late Show” on CBS here in America. I love comedians mostly for their courage and honesty and a few years ago Craig had a very honest moment with his audience about his problems with alcohol:
Some of my favorite quotes from the video:
I’ve been sober for 15 years, there is absolutely no way I have a drinking problem. I don’t have a drinking problem! I have a thinking problem.
I’m not advocating temperance. I’m saying this is for me. If I could drink I would drink, but I can’t. You can say to me “drink responsibly”, and I’ll say “I’ll try”. But I can’t. Certain types of people can’t drink, I’m one of them. You have to be responsible for your actions, sick or well. You have to be responsible for your actions, you just have to be! All of us are accountable. It’s your responsibility to deal with the condition that you have in whatever way you can.
