This guy was born for late night television.
We’ve all done at least one of those writing exercises (check out the book “The Write Brain Workbook”) in which they supply you with a list of words or characters you need to use in a hundred-word tome or a five-hundred word epic respectively, and of course there is no obvious connection between the words or the characters.
Just try to do a five-hundred word short story including Kim Kardashian, a National Honor Society high school graduate, a Jehovah’s Witness fresh out of meth rehab, Mahatma Ghandi and Ted Bundy.
I dare you.
Just figured my fellow scribes would have a deeper appreciation for this than most folks who never have to choose their words so scrupulously.
Here are the new kid on the American late-night talk show block and a beloved, revered maniacal Brit.
This kind of goes along with the idea that three of my favorite writers started in Stand Up comedy.
They just chose a different medium than Tolstoy, Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Camus or Stephanie Meyer (?).
Whoa – try writing five verses of iambic pentameter with those five.
