While I don’t normally choose favorites when it comes to members of my favorite sketch comedy teams, today I am giving a special shout out to Dave Foley fromKids in the Hall. Why? Well because I noticed that he is a great sport when it comes to late night talk shows. From on air proposals backed by Craig Ferguson’s …er, duck noises to an impromptu hair cut and a full moon, he makes late night funny. And sometimes late night television could do with a dose of the giggles. To that end, we think Dave Foley deserves some recognition for his excellent performances on the talk show circuit.
Here are a few of my favorite late night appearances by Dave Foley:
We always loved the Kids in the Hall sketch “The Communist Threat”. Then it was picked up by Keith Olbermann as a proto-Glenn Beck and was back on the air with a vengeance. Whatever side of the political aisle you are on, it’s pretty hilarious:
I really like the combination of Dave Foley and Craig Ferguson, especially in this sketch where Dave is a BBQ Expert:
Dave Foley was also a great sport when he let Conan O’Brien (doesn’t he have a new show starting tonight?) and Andy Richter cut his hair during the show:
Dave Foley stopped by Craig Ferguson’s Late Late Show to announce that he is in the running to be Person of the Year:
