It’s an established fact that Conan O’Brien is a preferable talk show host to Jay Leno (one that apparently NBC execs are unaware of). After seeing literally hundreds of my fb friends sign up for the “I’m with COCO” club, it occurred to me that virtually ANY Coco would make a more compelling host than the whiny talking chin.
So, given that I have this moderately funny parody idea and nowhere to put it… I’m experimenting with a self-distribution model that also uses the whole grass-roots social media campaign. If it gives you a chuckle, link up to it, and pass it along to your friends. Maybe enough of them will order a print to make this experiment a success.
PS: I hardly watch TV, but FYI, Jimmy Kimmel trumps Conan, Leno, Letterman, Fallon & Ferguson. That said even Kimmell is no Byron Allen!
