Almost Wednesday: Episode 1

A Series of Ill-Advised Heath Ledger Jokes.

Tuesday, January 22nd 2008. A chronology:

12:30 Heath Ledger is found dead in his Manhattan apartment.

3:00 Kurt, Eric and I start re-writing Kurt’s monologue for the night’s show, using Ledger’s passing as the funny.

3:30 We suddenly have a dozen new jokes to choose from. The rest of the monologue is thrown out.

7:00 Things spiral out of control. More people get involved. The entire sketch is thrown out and re-written.

11:00 Kurt goes on stage.

11:05 Kurt leaves the stage.  He shouts “GET A NEW AUDIENCE!”
Fred’s response – “I think we’ll have to.”
