Strangers With Candy…possibly the most offbeat comedy TV show that ever took to the airwaves. Pick up that thing on DVD if you don’t have it. To this day, friends of mine still reference the movie and discuss sitting at the Welcome Table (from the episode where Jerri Blank joins a cult, a must see).
On last night’s episode of The Colbert Report, Stephen was reunited with Paul Dinello on screen for a few brief minutes, the two were creators/writers/actors on Strangers. Colbert portrayed history teacher Chuck Noblet and Dinello played art teacher Geoffrey Jellineck. Both married men who were carrying on a secret love affair with each other.
For a brief moment, we got to reminisce about the days when times were simpler, and all we had to do was worry about spelling firing up the ol’ kiln.
Watch the duo square off about product placement.
