this thred's in case anyone else here keeps up w/conan, kimmel, kilby, letterson (thanx marge) et al
i'll start off by reporting carrie fisher's kilby appearance a coupla weeks ago, in which he sed to her "tell the audience who your parents are: debbie reynolds and eddie fisher, right?" to which she replied, with a deadpan, Daria-esque lack of melodramatic inflection (so i bet more than one fan missed the allusion), "that's not true, that's impossible"
later he pit her against that ep's other guest, david allan grier, in the show's "yambo" game in which they each have 3 seconds to answer quextions put to them. one quextion for grier: "name the most annoying charcter in star wars" (correct answer jarjar), to which he incorrectly replied "jabba the hut" and subsequently lost to leia
overall tho, ever since kimmel came on a year ago i think kilby's persona-schtick looks kinda phony and stiff in comparison; the throwaway barb on snl comes to mind: "he seems cool at first but soon the soulless emptiness inside is revealed" "oh, kinda like craig kilborn" while jimmy's got uncle frank, cousin sal and andy milonakis and more fearless daring, kilby keeps kissin up to too many Maxim covergirls and basketball bores
