Today I got a yellow ticket. I felt that maybe Mr. Beam made a mistake. The little yellow ticket means you get to go straight into the studio and sit in VIP section. The pages usually look out for me, and seat me in the VIP section when there is room. Today was different I got a yellow ticket. That means I didn’t have to make sure I was at the front of the line. I was a VIP, thanks Mr. Beam!
I sat next to Lance S. He creates, constructs, and restores historical vintage sport cars. He has driven a car up to 200 miles per hour. How cool is that? He was with five other car guys. They were in town to go to the Peterson Automotive Museum. The Museum was honoring a famous race car driver. They got the Tonight Show tickets from Peter. They ended up having lunch at the same café Martha Stewart was at, before the show.
Peter and Jay go way back. One day when Jay was doing stand up in Albany New York, there wasn’t that many people in the club that night, so Jay asked every one to come up front. Peter didn’t, and Jay started to heckle him. Jay asked Peter what does he do for a living. Peter said I’m a graphic designer for Shelby Automotive Club. The rest is history.
Lance quit his job two years ago to follow his dream of racing vintage sports cars. I told him I wish I could get paid to come to the "Tonight Show", meet and write about people’s lives. Lance said this is America, if you want to do something find a way.
During the show someone’s cell phone rang, the guy was handicapped and couldn’t get to the phone, so quick Kate (a page) was on the job, grabbed the phone and took it out of the studio.
Steve, one of the guys who was with Lance and Peter, was chosen to dance and win a Tonight Show T-shirt. They played "Beat it" which was interesting, I have never heard them play Michael Jackson before. Steve was a hit. For a straight laced white guy who is into cars, he can dance.
Borat was the wildest guest ever on the show. The women were going wild, and he received two standing ovations. He was rude and degrading to women, Jews, gays, and animals. The audience loved him. Kevin and Vicky (band members) didn’t.
It was pointless for Martha Stewart to be on the show today. She tried to teach Borat to make a bed.
Damien Rice was the musical guest. His music was simple.
After the show, Michael DeLorenzo, the hot guy from that old show, "New York Undercover" was there. The one who was on the show "Fame" and was one of the gang members in the video "Beat It" by Michael Jackson. I met him at a party… he’s a freak. I wonder what the connection to him and "The Tonight Show" is? He looked good. He has lost some weight and found a gym. Time changes things, if this were 1990 all the ladies would have been fighting to get to him. 2006 ladies are fighting for Borat.
Remember, You can't get lost, if you're driving on the right road...
