The Chicago Tonight segment was an absolute blast!!! Check it out here.

 

Doing live television is SUCH a trip! I kept thinking of that scene with Peter O’Toole in My Favorite Year– “You mean everything goes into the camera and then just spills into people’s homes??!!”

It’s like an incredibly fast improv game that is very challenging to keep on top of- and all you want to do is not say anything completely stupid as the “game” flies by at light speed.

In fact at one point my tongue gets WAY ahead of my brain and I credit John Hughes with Risky Business instead of Paul Brickman. Such is the rough and tumble nature of live TV– No “do overs!”

It was a fabulous time though and all in all I acquitted myself rather well. And of course Arnie was the consummate pro as always!

Many thanks to Phil Ponce and everyone at Chicago Tonight!
