"Hey Townsend:
I noticed that before Leno your once really bright intro "late night leader" has been toned down. Just wondering why.

  • Hi Barry
    Thank you for the add!

  • Hi Barry... sorry for not getting back to you a while ago. You were wondering about the 'Late night leader' intro to the Tonight Show. I've done 3 or 4 different versions over the years, but this most recent one we did a couple months ago and is indeed quite a bit more low key. I haven't actually heard it on the air, but when I recorded it, I was puzzled at the direction they were going with it. No other explanation than I think they wanted it a little more 'conversational'. Hey, I basically don't ask why anymore.
  • Anything I do is amazing? I like that.
    I wonder if my narration for a Disney industrial entitled " What is that sticky stuff? " designed to explain nocturnal emissions for viewing by boys in Jr High, falls under amazing, since I tried not to laugh through the whole session. Lines like ( paraphrasing since it was so long ago ) " Do not worry about the size of your penis. When you take showers at school after gym, you might notice that other boys appear to have a larger penis then you. Actually, all penis' are about the same size when they are tumescent.. etc etc etc".
    I chewed the inner lining of my cheek off doing that one, not only because of the copy, but trying to imagine the Disney artist's rendition of it.
    Yup, I am amazing!
  • Barry,
    Thanks for the welcome to this special club.
    you say you are hugable. Does that mean you wear Huggies? Then that is you upside down in the purple sweater. You gotta be the youngest promo talent in the biz, next to Pearl of Funny or Die!
    Hey hugable, go to and get a whiff of a couple of short films I produced to enlighten the unenlightened.
    Making more in the next few months.Love making films as much as vocalbating.
