It’s not everyday a financial writer is invited to do comedy on The Comedy Network. So when The Late O’Clock News with Paul Lemieux asked me to share my financial thoughts on Black Friday, I jumped at the chance with both Fluevogs flying through the air. (FYI: Fluevogs are my weird shoes.)
Anyways, you guys all know how I feel about impulse shopping, faux holiday sales events, and the cost of collecting too much crap so poking a little bit of fun at Black Friday craziness seemed like a good idea at the time.
And what a time it was. Smile. In under 2 minutes I convinced host and comedy journalist extraordinaire (Paul Lemieux) to pitch a tent (in preparation for Black Friday shopping) — something he had never done before.
Catch The Late O’Clock News Black Friday clip here, and then tell me how I did.
The Fine Print: I have a hunch the clip is only viewable to those with a Canadian IP address.
My sincere apologies to my many American readers who want to watch, but I guess restricting access to content is an unfunny thing comedy networks do sometimes. Hugs.
That was so funny! Thanks for the laugh.
Funny! Good job Kerry!
How tall are you??!!
How adorable. I loved it!
I’m in the US but was able to watch the clip using Tunnel Bear. I have no connection with whoever runs Tunnel Bear but it’s a virtual private network (VPN) that allows me to watch television in other countries. It’s free and very user friendly. I was glad I have it this morning because I was able to see this clip. Good job, Kerry. Yay!
To the Black Friday campers, I’m sure setting up the tent in the living room wouldn’t provide the same high. The only high I get setting up a tent is doing it in the mountains. Excellent work, keep it up!
I had to laugh that the show was preceded by a very blatant “buy me” add from The Source” 🙂
Thank you for saying on TV you will NOT be buying anything on BF in a personal, yet not preachy kind of way.
Brilliant! Love it .
