I Saw You. . .is an anthology of comics inspired by the creepy/cringe-making/kind of sweet “missed connections” posts on Craigslist. It’s edited by Julia Wertz of The Fart Party. Here’s one by Tom Hart.
The concepts “love” and “awkward” remind us of Conan O’Brien, who is leaving Late Night to move to LA and take over the Tonight Show. Pundits call it a huge ratings risk; we see a vertiginous IQ bump. I’m glad I don’t watch television so I don’t have to choose between Conan and Letterman. Here are Five Unforgettable Conan skits compiled by Esquire. No Triumph the Insult Comic Dog or Masturbating Bear, but they’re hilarious. And Andy Richter will reunite with Conan, not as sidekick but as announcer.
