Todd Yasui: Behind the scenes of late night TV

Big time TV producer, Todd Yasui is the guest today. Todd was the Executive Producer of “Late Late Show” with Kilborne and Ferguson. He was also my boss on “The Queen Latifah Show.” It’s amazing to learn that he got his first job by cold calling the infamous Helen Kushnick of the “The Tonight Show.” Todd gets into detail about his the early chaotic days of that show. It’s the truth behind “The Late Shift.” (Ok, the book was pretty close.)

Todd is very open and frank. if you love backstage showbiz stories, this is the show for you. Todd also talks about fighting with Steven Segal and we discuss our experience dealing with Bill Cosby as the allegations began.

“Leonard Part 6” w/ Josh Comers

Even Bill Cosby can make mistakes. Conan writer Josh Comers and comedian Jeff Cosgrave (“Lopez Tonight”) join me to talk about a classic fumble, “Leonard Part 6.”

Go to itunes!

After Cosby saw how bad this film was he went around telling people not to see it. Way to be honest. But at some point you must have known it was going pear shape.

We recorded on May Day and there were protests right outside the studio. We talk like there were a million people, but from the pictures you can tell it wasn’t that insane.

At the top of the show we make jokes about race. We are of course kidding. It’s a comedy show. We love everyone and hate ourselves. If you have any complaints send them to @joshcomers.
