Comedian in Chief

At Saturday's White House Correspondents Dinner, SNL's Cecily Strong had some strong competition.

From the current resident of the White House himself, President Obama.

Check out this bit where he invited Luther, his anger translator, to interpret the president's inner voice.

It's a bit seen often on Comedy Central's Key & Peele, but this time, the president was played by the real deal.

And it's real funny.

"Which One of You is Michael Palin?"

Over the weekend, the Tribeca Film Festival celebrated the 40th anniversary of Monty Python & the Holy Grail.

It was followed by a question-and-answer session hosted by HBO's John Oliver, but the Q&A didn't exactly go as planned.

Someone in the audience actually asked, "Which one of you is Michael Palin?"

Sadly, that person probably thought the legendary Python performer was related somehow to Sarah Palin.

I guess it's good that no one asked, "Which one of you is Monty Python?"

Know what I mean? Say no more, say no more...

Rest Well, Jayne Meadows

Jayne Meadows, a star of stage, screen and television, passed away yesterday at the age of 95.

She was perhaps best-known for her personal-life role as wife to Steve Allen, the first host of The Tonight Show.

Here's a fun clip from 1954 when Jayne appeared as the mystery guest on TV's What's My Line?, a show on which her husband was a panelist.

Celebrate YouTube

Ten years ago this week, YouTube was founded.

Hard to imagine a point in our history without it, but there you are.

The first video ever was a 19-second opus called "Me at the Zoo," posted by one of the company's founders.

In it, we learn that elephants have really long trunks.

The video has been viewed over 22.5 million times.

I wonder how many of those were high school kids writing term papers about elephants...

A Wild Reunion

This is an amazing video.

The Aspinall Foundation helps introduce gorillas born in captivity into the wilds of West Africa.

This video captures the moments when Damian Aspinall and his daughter Tansy rediscovered two gorillas she hadn't seen in about a dozen years since they were brought back to the Gabon Forest.

Truly amazing to watch the interaction between the primates and their human friend.

Johnny Depp Disappears Again - Into a Role!

Johnny Depp could well be the best actor of our day.

No matter what role he tackles, he dives in all the way - so much so, he's frequently unrecognizable.

Black Mass is the latest case in point.

In it, he plays Whitey Bulger, one of the most notorious gangsters in Massachusetts history.

And he pretty much disappears into the role.

Check out the clip. See if you can figure out which one is him...

Weekend in Pictures



Coming back from another SUPER BUSY weekend in NEPA. Friday I got to hang with my favorite bird, Tux, and fire up the crowd for the Penguins playoff opener. Our Pens won the first 2 games at home this weekend and can wrap up the 1st round of the Calder Cup playoffs with a win in Syracuse Wednesday night. #LetsGoPens




Sunday I hit Scranton with 500 over riders for the 12th Annual Tour de Scranton. We did the 32 mile trek to Carbondale & back. Despite a cloudy day, it was great to get out for my first big ride of the season.




The money raised benefits the Erin Jessica Moreken Drug & Alcohol Treatment Fund.
More info here-- > www.tourdescranton.com




Sunday night I ditched the spandex and got all fancy with Fast Freddie at the big fundraiser for the Scranton Cultural Center. We were media hosts for the 15th Annual Evening of Fine Food & Wine. Wow! Great tastes indeed. And it's really cool to donate the time and give back to an awesome facility like the Cultural Center. We are so lucky to have such a venue here in NEPA.

Hope you had a good one...

It's Dropping Trou Coming Around the Post...

Things got a little cheeky in the first rate at the Canterbury race track in Sydney, Australia yesterday when jockey Blake Shinn's trouser elastic snapped as he rode Miss Royale toward the finish line.

Even with his backside on full display, he managed to finish second, right in front of a horse named Modesty.

This stuff you can't make up.

And while it was embarrassing, it didn't affect him much. He won the last race of the day on a horse named Eisenhower.

This time, his pants stayed fully on.

Chewing with Chewie

For some reason, people are taking the #TwizzlerChallenge to help raise autism awareness.

I don't see the correlation, but if it helps, who am I to question it.

You take a Twizzler in your mouth, and place the other end of the Twizzler in your partner's mouth, and chew on it like the two dogs chewing on a strand of spaghetti in Lady & the Tramp.

Jimmy Kimmel kicked off Autism Awareness Month at the beginning of April by taking the challenge with Rihanna.

And then he challenged Star Wars: A Force Awakens director JJ Abrams to take the challenge - with the biggest hairiest hero of them all, Chewbacca.

The other night, the pair stepped up. Check out the video - and who they passed the challenge to...
