Matt Farley performs “Used to be a Pizza Hut” as Papa Razzi and the Photogs on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Matt Farley has written more than 18,000 songs in the past eight years, but his biggest performance came Tuesday night when Jimmy Fallon took up the “Suggestion Box” offer of a gig by Papa Razzi and the Photogs. So here was Farley performing his song, “Used to be a Pizza Hut.” It’s self-explanatory. As most of his short ditties are. Farley even wrote a song about me! Back in 2011, he emailed me to let me know his song, “Sean L. McCarthy, You Are The Comic’s Comic” was on iTunes as one of the 92 tracks (92 tracks!!)...

Dan Naturman on Conan

Dan Naturman returned to Conan on Tuesday night, once more a new uncle, fresh with jokes about how much simpler a job being an uncle is than a father. Especially to just not be bad at it. Naturman also joked about the difference between texting a potential mate and calling one up for a date, and he blew holes in the arguments for moving to a state where marijuana is legal. He’s originally from the 1970s, but he’s time-traveled his way all the way to today. You can hear Naturman on The Comedy Cellar Show, taped weekly at the...
