Celebrity Sighting!

So, my first day in Los Angeles I did what anyone would do: Celebrity Homes Bus Tour! Two hours on a bus with a family of Ugandans and a guy from Chicago, taking a look at all the celebrities’ homes. All your favorites were there: Nicholas Cage, Demi Moore, Spencer Tracy, John Lovitz, Bruce Willis, Paul Newman (neighbors), Harrison Ford, Danny DeVito and lots of old, dead people who only existed in black and white. Magic in the air!

Apparently, allegedly, the previous tour passed by Sylvester Stallone’s house just as he was getting his morning paper, and he waved and started doing muscle poses! Also, the guide said that two days before, they saw Steve Martin at his desk in his house through the front window, and he waved at them!

Well, we got a sighting of our own. Just as we were about to get on the bus, he walked by us. His hair was dark, his gait steady, and his eyes had that go-thither look. It was John Fugelsang.

It happened!

For those of you that are pretending not to know who J-Fuge is, here’s what Wikipedia has to say about The Man:

John Fugelsang (born September 3, 1969, Long Island, New York) is an American actor and stand-up comedian best known for his show Junk Male on VH1. He was also on America’s Funniest Home Videos (usually as co-host) for three seasons from 1998 to 2000, and co-hosted John McEnroe‘s short-lived CNBC talk show in 2004.

 

Fugelsang was the co-host of the 2006 World Series of Blackjack and the World Blackjack Tour on GSN. Fugelsang, along with Debra Wilson, currently co-hosts TV Water Cooler on TV Guide Channel. He is a frequent contributor to the Huffington Post where he writes humorous articles criticizing the War on Drugs.

And here’s a picture. Charming, ain’t he?

John Fugelsang wants YOU… to buy him a sandwich!

So there you go. Fugelsang. If it happened to me, it can happen to you.

God bless Los Angeles.  City of Angels, City of Quartz, City of Fugelsang.

  1. fugelsang was also the comic sidekick of john mcenroe in the painful cnbc talk show ‘mcenroe’ that jim and I went to a filming of, bused over to englewood cliffs, nj. they promised us lunch, and instead gave us cookies and soda. bastards. they deserved to be the lowest rated cable show ever (by some measures).

    fuge was also nearly fired from this awful show:

  3. Sorry to be coming to this so late… but I’m shocked no one (Cameron especially) has mentioned the crowning moment of Fugelsang’s career: Seated next to Jerry Falwell on an episode of Politically Incorrect, when the topic of gay rights came up, the Fugue (can we start calling him this? too much?) stood up, presented his posterior, and comically, yet nobly, offered his anal virginity to Mr. Falwell, as a step toward understanding. Really moving stuff.
