Ellen: Lauren Graham
“Oh, thank you, I’m just waiting for a little call,” she said. The joke was a fail, mainly because “little call” is not an expression.
“It’s going to be a classic joke one day and you’ll be sorry,” she said. “Someday, someday maybe.”
Good job tying your book back in. She did bring in some real classic jokes and a hand gesture to go with it.
“What do you call a fake noodle? An impasta!”
“A dyslexic walks into a bra.”
“Why did the scarecrow win the Nobel Prize? For being outstanding in his field.”
Lauren Graham Joins Twitter
Lauren Graham just joined Twitter and that’s where she found her classic jokes. She said it was to promote her new book, Someday, Someday, Maybe. She wanted a way to connect with fans and explain the story about the novel.
She said she was afraid of Twitter at first, but she has around 60,000 followers starting out.
Someday, Someday, Maybe Novel Review
Lauren Graham said that she enjoyed writing her book because she put a bit of herself in each character. She has a lot of downtime while on Parenthood. It took her about two years to write the book but it’s a quick read.
Someday, Someday Maybe takes parts of Lauren’s life and embellishes. The main character is trying to make it as an actress, but gets distracted by a man. If she doesn’t make it on Broadway, then she’ll have to move home with her mother.
Ellen: Heads Up App With Lauren Graham
Ellen’s new app, Head’s Up!, is number one in the app store. You can get Head’s Up! in the app store for iPad and iPhone.
She and Lauren Graham played two rounds of the game. The app records the person who is giving the clues in case something hilarious happens during the game. Ellen and Lauren’s videos are hilarious.
Lauren had a harder time giving the clues than Ellen did. They did it all without words, but a few minor sounds, with the act it out round. They ended up tying.
