Alfonso Ribeiro – promoting season 28 of America’s Funniest Videos
- Alfonso Ribeiro is here to talk with the guys about everything from how he started in showbiz to what he is up to today. He’s been in the business for so long and played one of the most memorable characters of all time, but you may be shocked to find that after he was done with the show he couldn’t really get any other work because everyone knew him as Carlton from Fresh Prince. It was hard to get away from that label, but when he finally got on to Dancing with The Stars he was seen in a new light. Now he is hosting the hit “America’s Funniest Home Videos” every week and keeping in shape with diet and exercise.
- The new Chris Rock Special on Netflix “Tambourine” is very good, according to Rich, but it takes a little warming up to get going. The start of the show is more about what it’s like to be black in America right now, and what it’s like raising kids, but about 15 minutes in he really gets going. You see the old Chris Rock come back, and he keeps you laughing the whole time. As long as you get through that first 15 minutes though you’ll enjoy the rest of the show.
- There was another school shooting yesterday in Florida, and the gun debate has been re-opened. People seem to be done with the whole “thoughts and prayers to the victims” thing though, because people see it as useless if this is going to keep happening. Should schools start implementing “shooting drills” or start employing security guards to stand at the entrances? Or should neighborhoods start forming their own private militias to combat these tragic events? Whatever it is, something has to be done, and soon.
- Tyrannosaurus Spot has made a return, and it came after the guys were criticizing his driving. They were all in Spot’s car the other morning, and he started to speed when a car next to him wouldn’t let him in. He ended up hitting a trash can, and when the guys called him out on it he flipped out on them. He is now calling both Covino and Rich Car Pussies, after they insulted his pride.
