The fun doesn’t end for Carson “traitor” Daly. Weeks after crossing the WGA picket line to produce new episodes of Last Call
, writers keep finding creative PR tactics to promote their cause. New York
mag’s Daily Intelligencer reports
that writers disguised themselves as audience members at last night’s show featuring Jerry Rice, popping up to heckle Daly one by one, until NBC production – security was obviously busy dealing with the first few - announced that anyone else interrupting the show would be prosecuted and advised that any other striking writers leave. The outcome? An audience down 20 more heads and a pale Daly.
My favorite part- one of the writers had been awarded a prize – a gift certificate to El Pollo Loco - moments before walking out for being such a great audience member.
Wouldn't a full audience for Last Call
be an immediate tip-off for mischief?
