So this was pretty cool. The lead story on Comedy Central’s “@midnight” show on Tuesday night came directly from Larry Brown Sports (it seems as if Bob Costas’ pink eye has been ubiquitous during the Olympics!). We’ve been fortunate enough to receive quite a few mentions on TV, radio and major websites — and we are extremely grateful to everyone who has ever cited us — but this was definitely one of the coolest mentions, mostly because it was so unexpected. I never in a million years would have thought we’d ever get shouted out on Comedy Central.
Anyway, it did happen, and it was awesome.
If you haven’t watched “@midnight,” you should check it out. It’s like a panel/game show featuring three comedians each episode. It’s fast-paced, jam-packed with laughs and rooted in social media. If you enjoy using Twitter, you’ll definitely enjoy the show.
Big thanks to host Chris Hardwick and everyone associated with the show for hooking us up! And thanks to our friend Amanda Rykoff for the heads up! Oh, and I probably should send Costas some eye drops as a thank you.
