So last Monday, May 21st were the 2012 Fifi Awards, the Fragrance industry’s Oscars. They hired Jane Lynch to host the award show at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tulley Hall. My good friend and comedian/writer Chris Doucette and I were hired and teamed together to write the opening monologue and wrap-up bits for Jane. It was a great time. Jane is a wonderful professional to work with. Her opening monologue was well received with two applause breaks after our punch lines. In fact, a lot of our jokes made it to the press. The evenings celebrity presenters, which included Martha Stewart, Josh Groban, Chaka Khan, and Nicole Richie complimented Jane on how funny she was in her opening. I guess we did our job!
A few photos here show us backstage where we reviewed what Chris and I tweaked to reflect events of the night, and worked on some wording with Jane. A great collaborative effort.
We hope to get another chance to work with Jane. We love her style and energy on the screen. I think we’d make a great team. 🙂

Jane cracking up at our proposed joke for the wrap up monologue. We didn’t use it. (Too risqué).

Hilarious show last week on Karith Foster’s America’s Girlfriend. We talk about a crappy toothbrush, a man with record length ear hair and one of Michael Jackson’s illegitimate children walks into a webshow.

Sean doing his thing. And his thing was being funny.

Karith was amazing and doesn't live too far from the venue!
Girls' night out at Comedy Covo. They were there for last month too. We have a fan base!
These two laughed the most. A great end to their weekend!

In case you missed it. I was Karith’s guest comedian on America’s Girlfriend last week and we chatted with our friend and comedian colleague Karen Bergreen about her new book Following Polly! It was a hilarious show. Click on this link to open up the video podcast!
By the way – buy her book. Great read – you can’t put it down.
