Do you remember my telling you that I had been asked to try my hand at writing monologue jokes for “The Nite Show with Danny Cashman”, Maine’s very own late night talk show? This was the show that was kind enough to have me on as a guest to promote my movie, “The Retirement Party”.
I was disappointed after none of my jokes made the cut for last week’s show, but I knew I had written jokes for this week’s show, so I stayed positive.
Well, the first thing I did this morning was watch last night’s edition of “The Nite Show”. I was very nervous, and prepared for another letdown (I know I’m the new guy and I have to pay my dues), but I was also incredibly excited.
Danny eased my mind immediately because the very first joke in his monologue was one written by your favorite Modern Philosopher! Yes, I was a total geek and hit the rewind button on the DVR so I could watch the joke again. What can I say? It was my late night TV talk show writing debut!
Ironically, the joke was about that “12 Days of Christmas” song that I’d ranted about on the blog yesterday. The joke also made fun of the Obamacare website, so I’m sure I’m on the White House Naughty List now!
I told Danny that if he used my jokes, I would mention it on my blog, and urge my loyal followers to check out the show’s Facebook page and Twitter. So what do you guys think? Do you feel like giving a shout out to The Nite Show on Facebook or Twitter? Maybe you can even mention that I sent you and they should use more of my writing (nudge, nudge, wink wink!).
The Facebook page is: Nite Show Maine and the Twitter address is @TheNiteShowME. Send Danny a little love, and make sure to tell him Austin sent you.
Don’t worry, Modern Philosophers, my other writing commitments would never prevent me from writing this blog. I love making you guys laugh! Thanks for letting me boast a little. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!
