Set your DVRs and prepare to laugh harder than you have since keyboard cat stole our Internet hearts. Yes indeed, this Monday, September 17, 2012 at 3 p.m. (Check your local listings, it’s 4 p.m. in some areas), I’ll be one of a few men joining the lovely and talented Katie Couric on her new show Katie.
What are we going to talk about? Real manly things like football, scotch, and cigars. Maybe some poker too for good measure. Oh wait. Sorry. You wanted the truth? We’re uh… We’re talking about Fifty Shades of Grey. What? You couldn’t hear me? No worries, I can just… Sigh. Okay fine.
I’m going on the Katie Couric show next week to talk about the book Fifty Shades of Grey. Happy now? Yeah, I can tell from your laughter that you’re spirits are lifted.
So how’d this come about? Long story short, I’ve written a number of articles about the book for The Stir (Why ’50 Shades of Grey’ Is a Must-Buy for Every Guy and ’50 Shades of Grey’: The Daddy Porn Edition). And this Monday, Katie’s having author Fifty Shades author E L James on the show.
For one of the segments, she wants to talk to a few men who’ve actually read the book. Somehow Katie’s producers found out I had read the book, we got to talking, and the next thing I knew, I’m heading down to NYC this Monday morning for a taping.
My only fear is that when I start complaining about the book, the rabid audience will start pelting me with rotten fruit. Other than that, I’m hoping to have a great time, and certainly expect to get at least one great follow-up blog post!
Oh, and maybe Katie will be so enamored by me, she’ll offer me a job. Or a cookie. They have cookies in the green room, right?
Don’t forget to watch Katie this Monday at 3 p.m.!
