Back in the day, on West Coast Weekend, Sedge Thompson played straight man to Anne Lamott's witticisms, and Anne usually, in the parlance of standup, killed.
Odd to see her (presumably as part of a book tour) as a guest on The Colbert Report, playing straight woman to Stephen Colbert. Amazing to see how fast he can accept a straight offer and turn it into classic Colbert.
And odd that I've worked in theatres for both of these people.
