I do love Dave. He’s absolutely great. He’s comical, witty, incredibly intelligent, and very humble. And he’s very ethical about his jokes. He has certain ‘lines’ that he or his writer’s cannot cross when making fun of others. He’s just great. (Oh, I’ve already said that. sorry). And since he’s had his baby, he’s just a ball of mush whenever anyone brings it up. And I think everyone brings up his baby boy now to get him off topic every now & then.
But the point is. . . For years (years), Dave’s been joking around about Oprah. He’s made on-air pleas for her to come on his show. He had campaigned for a while to get on her show, and even started the famous (& hilarious) ‘Oprah Log’. And then he would make his jokes. Here’s an excerpt from the log: “Day 82: I no longer want to be on your damned show.” Good ole Dave. Oprah did ask him on her show a couple of years ago (when the baby was born), but he wouldn’t go on b/c he said he “would break down and sob like a little girl … I don’t want to have that happen.”
Well, the time has come. Dave announced last night that Oprah’s gonna do his show on Dec. 1st! Set yo VCRs (or TiVos, if ya have one. But I don’t personally know anyone who does.)! It’s opening night of her ‘Color Purple’ (she’s da producer) on broadway.
Here’s what Dave said: “What a big night that is going to be — not only for us, not only for Oprah, but for Broadway. . . You have the big `Color Purple’ Broadway opening, and then right across the street here in this theater, you have Oprah appearing here. I mean, that’s what Broadway is all about — it’s a street of dreams.”
“This just gives you an idea of what a big, big star this really is. . . She’s huge. Put bygones behind us, the water under the bridge, over the dam, wherever water goes — standing in your basement — she’s going to be here on this show and it’s going to be fantastic.”
I love Dave & I love Oprah. So let the countdown begin!
