Today I interviewed a squirrel in my backyard and then threw to commercial. Somebody help me.
Here's his bio:
I had a show. Then I had a different show. Now I have a Twitter account.
The dude undeniably got screwed by NBC and Jay Leno. No question. And he's undeniably hilarious.
But come on. "Somebody help me." Yeah, I'll help you. Help you spend the millions of dollars you've earned for talking to celebrities and telling jokes.
I liked his shows. I even watched them sometimes. But how bad can he expect us to feel for him? Really? Even in the last couple of weeks of his "Tonight Show" run, when he was really socking it to NBC -- which was totally awesome -- his "pity me" shtick started to get a little grating. Yes, you got a bum deal. You got fucked. But have some dignity. It's one thing to lambaste NBC and Leno for being shortsighted, incompetent buffoons -- that shit's funny. But to repeatedly solicit sympathy from your viewers is just fucking lame.
