Oh! Great Odin’s raven! There are media pushes and then there’s what Will Ferrell did last night (August 8) where he appeared as Anchorman character Ron Burgundy on all major late-night talk shows.
Ferrell/Burgundy pulled this stunt to promote season two of his The Ron Burgundy Podcast. Clips from his appearances on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Late Late Show with James Corden and Conan can be seen below.
The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
Ferrell/Burgundy’s appearance on Colbert saw him do an extended sit-down interview AND a stand-up routine.
Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Ferrell/Burgundy must have been rushed for his appearance on Kimmel which only consisted of some stand-up, but some of San Diego’s finest is better than nothing.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
More stand-up from Mr. Burgundy and we get to hear about his knife fight with Kylie Minogue.
Late Night with Seth Meyers
Yet another stand-up routine from Ron, but this time he’s joined by a “Hipster Dummy.”
The Late Late Show with James Corden
It would’ve been cool if Ron did “Carpool Karaoke,” but at least we got to see him interact with some animals …and of course, there was more stand-up.
Finally, on Conan, Ron sits down for another interview, talks about how his podcast helped solve the Zodiac Killer case…and yes, more stand-up, but this time, there’s props!
