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”.
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.
Here’s a great song about the tragedy that came out only 22 months after it happened!
For those of you who have seen the small bits and pieces of the infamous “Maya Angelou” sketch that have floated around since the Second City Alumni show in December 2009, I know you will appreciate this adorable video of Stephen and Steve rehearsing the sketch before the show, along with a rendition of a song that I think was written especially for this sketch when it was originally performed. Enjoy!
G’day Zoners! It’s Christmas time again, and you know what that means, the lastest round up of Six Degrees news!! This week we have Grammy, SAG and Golden Globe nominations, a farewell to Daily Show executive producer Josh Lieb, John Hodgman’s new podcast series, Steve Carell’s post-Office projects, Allison Silverman’s new television series, an interview with Eric Drysdale, and more Amy Sedaris and Neil DeGrasse Tyson than you can poke a candy cane at.
Oh yes. That just happened. Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Jon Stewart, and Tay Zonday just sang about everything that was fabulous about just a smidge too far back to be relevant in pop culture. So let’s talk about it all! The dancing! The singing! The epaulets! The dancing! The mustaches! The dancing! Sweet baby JESUS that was adorkable. Click through to sing along with all of the lyrics to “Everyone’s Talking ‘Bout Sully”!
Don’t forget – tomorrow night, October 21st at 9p/8c is this year’s ‘Night Of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Concert for Autism Education’. You can get a jump on supporting the cause by bidding on an autographed March To Keep Fear Alive poster, Stephen Colbert Signed Declaration of Independence, and the item I would bid on if I had the funds, Stephen Colbert’s Autographed Pilots Hat from the musical number featuring Stephen, Jon Stewart and Steve Carell. (Oh, and Jon’s hat is up for auction, too.) While we wait patiently for the unveiling of the epic Sully-themed musical number, you can enjoy another one of the highlights of the evening, featuring Steve Carell.
