I don’t have many rules that I live my life by but I’ve determined that the following is definitely one:
If someone asks you to be on a talk show and they don’t tell you why, you probably shouldn’t go. If when you get there they put you in a soundproof room while your friends and/or family go on camera ahead of you, you should run from the studio as fast as you can. No good at all can come from this. The only reason that they are putting you in a sound proof is so that the audience can see the look on your stupid face as they make an ass of you.
