G’day Zoners! I hope you are all enjoying your nice warm spring weather. Winter appears to have come early down in Aus, we are all freezing to death and it’ still only Autumn. Enough about the weather and onto this weeks Six Degrees round-up. This week Ed Helms hosts SNL, Demetri Martin has a new book out, Josh Gad receives a Tony nomination, Kevin Bleyer has been revealed as the writer who helped President Obama pen is WHCD speech, and New York Magazine goes inside Amy Sedaris’ New York City apartment.
G’day Zoners! I hope you have all had a wonderful Easter break. I’ve spent my much needed week of Uni eating far too much chocoloate, and compilling the latest round-up of Six Degrees news. This week Jon Stewart will again be performing in the Story Pirates benefit, Mark Malkoff races a NYC bus, Aasif Mandvi pen a book of semi autobiographical essys, Ed Helms is set to guest host “SNL”, Samantha Bee will co-host the 2011 Lucille Lortel Awards, “Wyatt Cenac: Comedy Person” debuts on Comedy Central, and Conan O’Brien is a guest on “WTF with Marc Maron”.
‘Colbert Report’ producer Paul Dinello and the cutest hobo ever, Amy Sedaris, star in this exclusive ‘Funny or Die’ video promoting the Chipotle’s “Wrap What You Love” contest. If you look closely at the dinner table, you’ll also see the ‘Colbert Report’ resident koala f@#ker, Matt Lappin.
I’m going to be doing a bit of work on the template tonight, so things are going to get a bit wonky for a bit. There is no need to panic. If you get a bit scared, please look at this picture of Stephen Colbert with a puppy. Thank you.
Everyone still singing “Friday”? Yeah, me too. Remember the QR code held up in the background, which led to a cute video Easter egg from Jimmy Fallon? Well, we were wrong to be so easily satisfied, because there’s more down that rabbit hole. In the first video, Jimmy holds up another QR code, which leads [...]
If you saw the QR code (that weird box with a funky code in it) and were curious as to a) what it was, and b) why they showed it, we’ve got an answer for you! According to Wikipedia, “A QR code (short for Quick Response) is a specific matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code), readable [...]
G’day Zoners! I hope your all enjoying April Fool’s Day, and more importantly brushing up on your “Friday” lyrics so you can all sing-a-long with Stephen tonight. As much as I loathe that song I really hope Stephen can put the TGI back in Friday. It was once my favourite day of the week, before that song came along. But I digress.This week in Six Degrees News Jon Stewart makes a cameo in “The Adjustment Bureau”, Jason Jones is co-starring in a new CBS comedy pilot, Lewis Black stopped by “The Late Late Show”, Mark Malkoff will be a guest on “Beer Diplomacy”, Amy Sedaris has a new iPad App, Conan talks about “Conan O’Brian Can’t Stop” and Movits! are touring Canada and The US.
This hysterical video features famed artisan pencil sharpener David Rees as Julian Assange. Also, while watching the video, don’t forget to play one of my favorite games – “Spot the ‘Colbert Report’ writers!”
According to the New York Post: “One source told us, ‘A single conversation has happened. It’s still extremely preliminary. He’ll be on every now and again, like Lewis Black. He’s not joining as a correspondent but a contributor.’ But other sources said King is talking to his close friends as if it’s a done deal.”
G’day Zoners! I don’t know about you, but I am still stuck in a post Ben & Jerry’s brain freeze of joy. Only Stephen could make chocolate coated potato chips and salty caramel swirl sound tasty. But I digress. In this week’s Six Degrees round-up “Earth (The Audio Book)” receives more award nominations, Kristen Schaal features in a new “The National” film clip, Jimmy Fallon appears at The Paley Center, Allison Silverman appears on “This American Life”, and Conan O’Brien, Jon Stewart and Lewis Black are to be featured in Comedy Central’s tribute to the late Greg Giraldo.
