I am not from Los Angeles and I’ve never worked in the entertainment industry. I didn’t go to high school with Tori Spelling and didn’t date, drink with, or become bff’s with a movie star back in the day.
That’s why when I have the chance to go to a movie or television set I jump on it. It’s magical to me and I don’t care what saying that does to my LA street cred.
Needless to say, I’m not indifferent to the occasional celebrity sighting. I almost started jumping up and down last week when I ran into John Oliver of The Daily Show on the set of the NBC show “Community.” Instead I said a much too loud, “Hi!!” with a maniacal grin on my face.
A group of bloggers and I were guests of the show and got watch to part of a taping. On the Paramount Lot, no less! Very exciting. Then we got to interview John Oliver, Joel McHale, Ken Jeong, and Alison Brie. Ken Jeong is the funniest doctor turned comedian I’ve ever met.
I could show you the fantastic video I took of Ken Jeong being hilarious, but I was too excited to notice that I didn’t hit the record button. Instead, I’m sharing the equally hilarious video that Elise of Elise’s Ramblings took.
