This week Amy Sedaris drops by “Jimmy Kimmel Live”, Neil DeGrasse Tyson stopped by Bill Maher’s round table, Ed Helms has a new movie out, Dana Carvey returned to “Saturday Night Live”, and Jon Stewart has been named one of the best stand-up comics to graduate from MTV.

    I really liked Neil deGrasse Tyson on “Real Time with Bill Maher.” I thought Tyson handled himself very well, especially when his one-on-one interview was over and Maher and the other guests started talking about politics again. Neil’s just all-around awesome.

    Thanks for the article by Allison Silverman! I loved it – she is truly a brilliant writer. And like I feared, I fell asleep before I could watch Amy Sedaris on Jimmy Kimmel. So that link will definitely get a bookmark on my desktop until I can find time to watch it. :)

  2. I can’t wait until Kevin Bleyer talks on March 6! I can’t believe someone from the Daily Show is coming to Boca – usually everything happens in New York. And I agree with lockhart43, Tyson was really good on Real Time. He and Anthony Weiner made it a really good show. More than usual, that is. Also, that fake movie preview was awesome. I would see that in a heartbeat.

  3. I miss watching “Real Time”. We don’t get HBO where I am right now. I would’ve loved to see that.

    Amy on “Hot In Cleveland”? That should be interesting (and given other people from other shows I’ve liked are on there, more connections to be made now!).

    I’ve been seeing lots of positive reviews for Ed’s new film. Given where it’s set as well, that only adds to my interest :). Will definitely try and see that at some point.

    Thanks for the links to all the other stuff here, too, nice to see people keeping busy and continuing to have their talents noted and appreciated.

  4. Awesome compilation as always, the Allison Silverman piece was a great read….oh, and a big grats to TDS for taking out the Grammy for Spoken Word on Earth (The Audiobook)!!
