SHOW UPDATE: On Monday, February 16, I'm going to be celebrating President's Day by camping out at WFMU for the evening. I'll be a guest on Jo Firestone's hilarious Dr. Gameshow at 7 p.m. ET and then on The Goddamn Dave Hill Show at 9. You can listen to both live (and call in!) at WFMU.org
Also, Boston people! There are just a few tickets left for You're the Expert on Saturday, Feb. 21. You can get yours here: Link
Ok, on to this week's list!
1 Thing I Think Is Great:
Conan O'Brien decided to invite child prodigy Tanishq Abraham on as a guest and it was the one of the greatest decisions in television history. Watch as Tanishq shares some of his favorite science jokes and mercilessly mocks Conan. It's pure joy. Tanishq Abraham on Conan
1 Thing That Made Me Laugh:
Amy Poehler was celebrated at Harvard recently as the Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year. Per tradition, the members of the Hasty Pudding club paraded Poehler through the streets of Cambridge and then roasted her. Luckily for everyone, Amy roasted them right back. Here are the highlights from her spectacular skewering.
