I don't like it. Even if they do tame his questions and train him to stutter less, I still don't like it. Howard Stern humour isn't funny to me and Stuttering John was less funny.
Maybe they could get Michael Buffer to be the announcer. Seriously, can't they come up with a better choice?
His stuttering is pretty much gone, he must have had therapy.
I still don't think he is funny.
I don't get this move. I like Stuttering John, but he doesn't really have an announcer's voice. And I don't care what comedy bits they come up with for the guy, he'll never approach the brilliance and lunacy of Joel Goddard on Conan O'Brien.
I've never really seen any of the Conan bits, but they CANNOT be any funnier than the goofy shit they get Alan Kalter to do on Letterman. CANNOT !
Out of curiosity, what happened to Ed Hall? Granted, I haven't watched Leno in a while now, but last I knew Ed Hall was still announcer...
I've never seen any of Alan Kalter's stuff. I think the stuff that Joel has done is hilarious. You should definitely check it out. Joel on Joel watching Joel, Joel's hunky stripper boyfriend, Joel just being Joel, etc.
Sounds like a big mistake... I don't think Jay's audience is going to appreciate him, and I dont think Stern's audience will go to Leno...
I really liked Ed Hall. Why is he leaving?
How much can an announcer make? I mean the guy says like 10 sentences a night. What else do these guys do?
Click. On. The. Article. Link. It's. Not. That. Hard.
As has already been mentioned: read the article.
I read the article. =) I was just thinking of Edd Hall. He rarely does interviews/segments and I just don't understand how it's a full-time job.
Its not... he also does Voice Over work, and there is BIG bucks in that...
I just can't imagine Stern being happy about this--his boy is going to the enemy. Last I checked, Stern REALLY DISLIKES Leno.
Should be interesting to hear mondays radio show.
From the article I read today, John called Stern to tell him the news. Apparently, Stern was very happy for John and both of them reportedly became choked up. Stern then invited John down to Atlantic City to celebrate. Also, I don't think that Stern has any ill will toward Leno. He likes Leno and did his show on the same day that Letterman returned from his heart surgery absence. I know it was some years ago, but Stern hardly dislikes Leno.
Don, I wasn't referring to you, I was referring to the two that asked why Edd left.
Stern doesn't dislike Leno. He just makes fun of him a lot. That's what he does.
I do think it's ironic that the ultimate "kiss ass interviewer" Leno hired the "anti-kiss ass interviewer" Stuttering John.
