COP: Parade of Losers

Well, we’re clearly in the home stretch of the 2008 presidential election – only 9 major candidates left! What better way to celebrate than by remembering the long list of losers who have already dropped out of the race.

That’s exactly what my buddy Steve Garfield and I did in the most recent episode of Cup O Politics. Check it out here.

Another new episode coming next week! Pass the word.

Hopefully He Had Camel Insurance

If you think your parents were horrible, remember, it could have been worse; they could have been international terrorists. One of Osama bin Laden‘s kids, Omar, has recently been in the news, trying to promote – of all things – world peace! Well, this got me to thinking about what it must have been like having OBL as a dad. That led to a nice little joke that I wrote which Dave Letterman told to close out his monologue on Wednesday’s Late Show (1/23/08):

Osama bin Laden’s son Omar had a troubled childhood.

When he was 17 he wrecked his dad’s camel.

You can also watch the video of the entire monologue here.

Wonder what the deductible is on a camel?

What Writers Strike?

In case you’ve been living under a rock, you know there’s been a writers strike going on for a while now. For a couple of months this meant that us Late Show monologue joke freelancers had no show to submit to, as it was off the air. A few weeks back, Dave Letterman struck a deal with the Writers Guild of America so he could come back on air with his full writing staff, which meant I could submit jokes again.

Well, it took a couple of weeks, but I finally landed another joke on the show. In fact, Dave told not one but two of my jokes on Monday‘s show (1/21/08). First, he opened the monologue with this one:

It was freezing cold today here in New York City.

The key to beating the cold is to dress in layers. So today I’m wearing two hairpieces.

Then, after a few other jokes, he closed it out with this one that I wrote:

Mayor Bloomberg and the mayor of Boston have already made the traditional Super Bowl bet.

Here’s the deal: if the Giants win New York gets a crate of lobsters. If the Patriots win, Boston gets Regis.

Even better, as you can hear in the audio, when Dave told this second joke there was some sort of cue card malfunction. Because of that we got a good shot of Dave’s longtime cue card guy Tony Mendez holding the card with my joke on it! I have a couple of these cards with my jokes at home and it’s always interesting to see how Tony writers them out for Dave. Take a look:

Tony Mendez holding my joke!

You can also watch the video of the entire monologue here.

Dave Rejects

Here’s a new video of jokes that I wrote for and David Letterman and submitted to the Late Show last week, but which were rejected. I’ve tried to recreate the feeling of a real Dave monologue and I think you’ll find it hard to tell that you’re not watching the real McCoy.

Check it out below or watch it here.

Nicole Richie Joke

I’ve started playing around with seesmic. What better way to kick it off than with a rejected David Letterman joke? Take a peek:
