So I’ve been wandering around AdTech in search of funny. There’s not much here. Love ya Chris Anderson, but CNET was more entertaining than your session. Don’t get me wrong- I learned a lot. I noticed you used “bifurcate” and “finger flow,” and that helped our vocabulary.
Daisy Whitney invited me to host “The Internet’s Funniest People” today as the closing keynote event. I’m kinda the Johnny Carson, and we’ve got an all-star cast: Sneezing Panda, David and the Dentist, Charlie Bit My Finger, and Star War’s kids. Wait- never mind. They all canceled. But we do have f’ing Take180, Alex Koll (Revision3, Rooftop Comedy), Ben and Rafi Fine (The Fine Brothers), and Greg Benson (Mediocrefilms). Collectively these funnies have been seen more than the last superbowl and final episode of Mash combined.
Here’s some footage from yesterday. Dang- Benson gets here in 10 minutes and I haven’t showered. Tata for now. We’re performing a “Who’s On First” parody that will either produce some isle ROFLs or awkward silence. It can only go two ways.
Just wrote my short opening monologue from scratch. Nothing like a little urgency to get the creative juices flowing.
