July 3: The Wayans To Leno

Jay Leno has always been comfortably inside the lines of mainstream American comedy while Damon Wayans has built a family business out of going out on a limb. So what do these two comics have in common? For one, both are performing in Las Vegas this month. For another, they’re both on the show this week. Leno reacts to questions as about why he’s not more respected by the entertainment media while Wayans tries to explain the method to his mad career.

In Banter: Steve Wynn's cocktail, Steve Friess' drinking binge, Harrah's environmentalism, Penn v Angel and a George Carlin tribute.

I saw Carlin do that routine twice in Vegas. He did not use a TelePrompter.

The Carlin bit was incredible.

The Leno interview almost left me with more respect for him. Almost. Not a fan. Great interview though.

Wayans was disappointing. He seemed sleepy, evasive and/or not very into it... Then the publicist or handler chiming in at the end and interrupting... Blurgh!

Thanks for the show guys.

I read recently that almost all Casinos do have a crew separate their garbage. They said the savings for them was from retaining accidentally thrown out items such as silverware, china, etc. The recycling thing was just a side benefit. Jeff in OKC
