Fozz... BULLY!

Can you tell where the real statues end and the not-so-real statues begin? Here is Doran next to a statue of Theodore Roosevelt (and friendly Indian dude) in front of the Museum of Natural History.

Line forms here. Have your ID ready.

Chadd and Doran wait in the stand-by line with other lazy people who couldn't get off their butts and send a postcard six months before requresting tickets to The Late Show.

"If Dave makes a joke and you're on the fence as to whether it's funny or not... it's probably funny," said Late Show staffer to the anxious, but cold, crowd. The staffers prepared the audience members-to-be before they entered the studio by encouraging them to laugh as often as they could and to be energetic.
