Just when I thought I might have to rent the DVD of The Love Guru to see the funny provided by Jim Gaffigan and Stephen Colbert, the fine folks at the No Fact Zone (with an assist from Videogum) have done so for me and passed along this deleted scene improvisational fun-time surprise. Needless to say, it’s Not Safe For Work. Gaffigan and Colbert, reminders to you all, played hockey broadcasters in the booth for the big game. Sample exchange: “I would not want to be his balls.” “I don’t even think his balls want to be his balls.” Five minutes of funny, followed by bloopers:

3 thoughts on ““The Love Guru” outtakes: Stephen Colbert and Jim Gaffigan!”
On The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on May 3, 2017, Colbert explained to his guest Paul Scheer that he doesn’t actually know how The Love Guru got made. Scheer, of course, hosts a great podcast about bad movies called “How Did This Get Made?”
But Colbert did acknowledge that 1) he only joined the cast of The Love Guru because of the WGA writers strike of 2007, which gave him free time, 2) that because of the WGA strike, there was no script for his scene with Jim Gaffigan, and so 3) they improvised the whole thing. Which resulted in the outtakes seen above!
