Talk Show Host Has Moral Epiphany
Posted on Feb 22, 2007
In this heartfelt monologue, “Late Show” host Craig Ferguson says he won’t make fun of Britney Spears and reveals his own bout with rehab.
Ferguson: People are falling apart. People are…People are dying. That Anna Nicole Smith woman—she died!
No, it’s not a joke. You know, it stops being funny, that. She’s got a six week old kid, or six month old kid. What the hell is that? You know, and I’m starting to feel uncomfortable about making fun of these people. For me, comedy should have a certain amount of joy in it. It should be about always attacking the powerful people—attacking the politicians, and the Trumps and the blowhards—go after them! We shouldn’t be attacking the vulnerable people.
