CNN is reporting that Tough Crowd could be soon banished off into the hinterland of the permanent hiatus. One of the possible replacements is a showbiz satire with David Spade and Hugh Fink that is going to be produced by Pariah Productions Gavin Polone and Vivian Cannon.
Cannon grew up here in the DC area--in Band Camp, to be precise--where she attended McLean High School and later UVA, where The Deceiver was lucky enough to spend hours under her tutelage in the ways of snark. So, she is one of the people you can blame for the person I've become.
Cannon is depicted above unleashing some fierce-ass Krav Maga on former Daily Show correspondent Brian Unger, who interviewed her on the subject as a part of NPR's Day-to-Day show. This is an odd coincidence, since the other candidate competing after Quinn's post TDSwJS time slot is...you guessed it--Brian Unger. Given her martial arts prowess, however, I'm giving the odds to Cannon.
