Q
Hey so how does @midnight work? Do the celebrities come up with he jokes? Is the whole thing scripted? Do you give everyone suggestions for jokes? How much of the jokes are improv and how much is written by the writing staff
A

jordanmorris:

There’s a writing staff (a great one) that comes up with the games and writes copy for Chris (that he sometimes changes and improvs with on the fly).  We write a TON of sample jokes (“answers”) for each game and present them to the comedians when they arrive (2-3 hours before show time).  Usually, the comics have a ton of jokes they’ve written too.  Basically, the guests and writers work together to create the funniest comedy gumbo possible.

WoW Fic: Parting Gifts

baital:

There’s all sorts of knocks. Hard Knocks. Timid Knocks. Insistent Knocks. Rhythmic Knocks. Knocks in code. The demanding knock of the Stormwatch guards right before they break down your door.

The knock that woke Reyzl was none of those knocks. Nope, it was definitely the knock of someone who was going to murder you with their mind if you didn’t open the door right that damned moment. The screaming that accompanied it was mere coloration on the more evocative pounding.

Mmmm. My favorite thing I ever did in any shop class was when we did typesetting in middle school. I could’ve done that all day. I realize that love hasn’t gone away. :3

Welp. I want the Schulz bio. For real, and as a flask safe.

I illustrated another map of the U.S for Slate!

A sweet for every state: http://www.slate.com/articles/life/food/2014/08/united_sweets_of_america_map_a_dessert_for_every_state_in_the_country.html

Some people have questioned me about a few of the choices on the map, but keep in mind, I didn’t write the article or make the choices! I just got hungry drawing it.

You can see my previous sports map here.

This is some delicious cartography.

Start your Monday off right. Or end it right by looking at this.

Thanks for your show. I am very much a regular listener now on WNYC in New York (Sunday at 6:00).

This might sound offensive, but I mean it in the best way: I hear the promo for your show, and I often say to myself, “I don’t give a shit about this.” Then I listen to ten or so minutes of your broadcast and I find myself totally engaged and totally drawn into whoever you are talking to, or whatever you are talking about. Your program has the ability to make me care about subjects that I was 99% sure that I wasn’t interested in. An odd compliment I’m sure, but it is a compliment I assure you!

Best to you and your colleagues at Bullseye. Keep at it.

A specific instance, delivered earlier today via email, of a sentiment I hear a lot about Bullseye.

It’s great fun for people who are already on board with the show (or who are listening on the radio and simply don’t change the channel). For us, though, it’s a pressing problem.

What’s the hook when the premise, essentially, is “trust us?”

We don’t do SHOCKING BOMBSHELLS, we don’t do CRAZY CONFLICTS, and no boldface name we book seems to have more than about a 10-15% impact on our numbers.

So… I dunno. Just throwing it out there.

I wonder if how you do your teasers at the beginning of the broadcast would be good as promos. I know the time limit makes it tough, but they are really well done (well, the whole show is, but you know).
