With Conan gone — but coming back in the fall (WOO!) — Craig Ferguson is now my favorite talk-show host. His abnormal talk-show style is fabulous. He has no band, no side kick (until recently, more on that later), and I feel like his monologues are really stand-up acts and not jokes of that day’s news whipped up really quickly. I laugh a lot when I watch the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson…and that always pleasantly surprises me. Plus he’s always up for anything on his show. For his 1000th episode, the whole show was done with puppets. And one time wind caused a major blackout, so he finished his show with just a flashlight for lighting.
But the funniest thing I’ve seen on his show so far is the introduction of his new robot sidekick. His new sidekick was built by one of the guys on Mythbusters in return for Craig’s helping him get more followers on Twitter. (You can really tell I belong on NerdGirlBlogging if I follow Craig Ferguson and the people of Mythbusters on Twitter, right?) Here’s the video of Geoff Ferguson’s introduction. Enjoy!
Oh how I love talented lip sync-ers. 🙂
