There are hands, bands, and brands in both rock & roll and comedy. Stephen Colbert has become a brand. Like a TV show putting out quirky extras for YouTube fans only, the Late Show team has been tearing it up with unique social media. In today’s video, Backbone’s digital crew begins with Anderson Cooper introducing […]
We’re all used to lawyers acting confident. Johnny Cochran, who successfully defended O.J. Simpson on murder charges, famously strutted into the courtroom as if the trial itself was merely a formality. But it isn’t every day that a lawyer treats going to work like a holiday. It must feel like that when you’re taking President […]
Have you always considered Kellyanne Conway a bit…frightening? She hasn’t been quite so visibly lately, but the Saturday Night Live crew found her last weekend, lurking in the sewers as a clown called “Kellywise” (Kate McKinnon).
