Fun on a Friday: Even Jimmy Kimmel knows this Broadway rule.

Rule #1 of Broadway Producing:  Never put your own money in the show.

Rule #2 of Broadway Producing:  Always try and put Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick together on stage.

Jimmy Kimmel was the perfect Broadway Producer earlier this week when he reunited my It’s Only A Play stars to reprise their Producers characters for the skit below.  This time, instead of trying to make money by producing the worst show on the planet, the comic duo of Lane/Broderick try to make money by running the campaign for the worst presidential candidate on the planet.

I’ll let you guess who that is.

Happy Friday!

  • Jimmy Kimmel, John Oliver, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, Bill Maher, and others, have made me LOL with their brilliant skewering of the ridiculous Republican candidates, however deep down, I honestly wish that this kind of negative comedy would be unnecessary. I just can’t believe that the GOP couldn’t come up with better candidates!

    Rule #2 is usually right Ken, Lane and Broderick are brilliant together,
    with the exception of The Odd Couple. They were riding on their success in
    The Producers, but in The Odd Couple, IMO, they were both miscast and
    had no chemistry.
