Keith Olbermann



Keith arrives on 53rd Street.  Not to tape a Late Show guest appearance…



…but rather to host the latest incarnation of his own show in the adjoining basement of Rupert Jee's Hello Deli.  The nightly show is not televised, but the handful of tourists on folding chairs who watch Keith say he's quite articulate.

However, there are rumors that Rupert and Keith aren't getting along.  Keith complains that Rupert simply isn't equipped to produce a top-flight show, while Rupert says Keith's show is in the way when he goes downstairs to retrieve napkins and condiments.

I have a bad feeling about this.

  2. When I first read this report about "Keith, Live from the Hello Deli," I thought it meant that Keith is the one telling his audience that he's quite articulate["watch Keith say he's quite articulate"], which seems totally in keeping with the Keith we all know[and also illustrates the sometime hazards of skimming]. But anyway, I'm still curious as to how Keith entices these folks to spend time trapped in a basement with him? Thanks for further info ...

    1. How much enticement would they need beyond folding chairs in a deli basement? Any articulate commentary is just gravy. Oh, also, there might be gravy.

  6. I'm sorry my comment on this one is late, I hope my membership in this club isn't compromised.

    Keith Olbermann shouldn't have called everyone "The WORST PERSON..." It's hard to get a job when you put everyone down all the time.
