An American, Australian and Englishman walk onto a Russian late-night talk show

19 Jul

It’s been a ling time since I’ve done just a mini-blog. I feel like I’m copping out here, especially since last week’s post was so well-regarded on Facebook.

And now on to the world’s most [h]awkward interview ever.

Would you consider Ivan Urgant to be more like Craig Ferguson, Jay Leno, Jimmy Fallon or David Letterman? I feel like he’s a bit more straight-laced than Ferguson.
