Andrew Zimmern’s Tonight Show Experience

Zimmern was on the Tonight Show last night and posted a great look at what it’s like hanging out on the Tonight Show set:

My Day With Jay

You get awesome swag, like cool clothes (thanks Danielle!) and a car and driver to take you wherever, whenever. The private dressing rooms have bathrooms and showers and phones and TVs and all the other bells and whistles. Like what, you might ask? Well, every room you are escorted to and from has a rolling buffet in it just for you—you get treated like a king, doors opened, yes sir, no sir (all right, no one says no), you get nameplates on your dressing room. You get to hang out with John Melendez, Mo Rocca, and Fred Willard all day, so you pee your pants you are laughing so hard, and to top it all off, the best TV people in the business are rehearsing you, lighting you, pressing and primping your clothes, taking care of your every need, and making every guest look and sound better than they are in real life. Amazing stuff.

If you’re into the local food scene, consider subscribing to Andrew’s blog. Great stuff. Generally focused on higher end restaurants in Minneapolis, but he mixes it up from time to time.
