Film Vault Friday (er, Saturday?): State of the Show Address
Wow, how quickly the week goes when you’re out drinking every night and sleeping ’til noon. Sorry, folks (for what it’s worth, my 5:30am alarms commence Monday). Here’s an uninspired Film Vault Friday offering on my part, which is to say it’s Conan-related (nope, I’m not over it yet).
Watching Colbert’s version of the State of the Union Address made me realize how painful it is that Conan is gone before getting to do a Stage of the Show Address as host of the Tonight Show — and how amazing it would’ve been if all this NBC fallout had taken place THIS week instead. The State of the Show is not so good.
Here’s the 2003 State of the Show address, thanks to Youtube user MsHandsanitizer (seriously).
(BTW, am I the only comedy nerd out there who frequently refers to the President’s speech as State of the Industry? Damn you, Kindler.)
