Next up was Doug Gordon who told a couple of quick stories about ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire’, meeting Ted and Jane at a Braves game, and having Claudia Schiffer offer to buy him ice cream. He saved most of his time for a hilarious and cringe-inducing story of how he was partially responsible for gameshow/talkshow host John Davidson singing a love song to a pig in front of a bunch of angry Charlie Daniels fans. This was easily the high point of the evening.
It's not exactly the same as being reviewed by Ben Brantley or Roger Ebert, but I'll take it.
Also, Derek Hartley one of the other readers from that night (and who killed with his juicy tidbits of insider celebrity gossip) has a rundown of the show, although he lists me as "Dave Gordon," laying waste to the old adage that it doesn't matter what they write about you so long as your name is spelled correctly.Posted by Doug at April 9, 2006 08:34 PM
