Craig Glazer Explains Chirs Franjola Faux Pas On Kansas City Fox4



TKC NOTE: Craig keeps us up to date on the foibles of one of his comedy buddies and his weekend plans . . .

Naughty Chris Franjola
Ask FOX 4

Chris Franjola will make his third trip to Stanford and Sons this weekend. Chris has been banking the big bucks on his own show, ‘After Lately’ which follows on ‘Chelsea Lately’ He is also on Chelsea Lately and hosts the post-show discussion for the FOX hit, ‘Sons of Anarchy’. Though he looks like a modern day version of Bobby Kennedy and even goes into his adult version of Justin Bieber on TV, his quick wit is more reminiscent of a younger Lewis Black.

Stanford’s faux pas’ are legendary at FOX 4. It goes all the way back to the mid-nineties when Jimmy ‘JJ’ Walker had a run-in with FOX security which got discussed on-air. The heated debate ended up on the front page of the Kansas City Star and later on ‘Hard Copy’, the national sensational news show. That little episode had Stanford’s suspended from FOX 4 for one year. A few years later when delivering a requested DVD from the Police Academy movies with comedian Michael Winslow, they refused to open the doors for us as they didn’t have a written order from the producers which caused an argument that had us suspended for another year. The irony of this, had this been a more open-minded media market, these things would have been considered great and entertaining television like the reality shows we see today. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case in the nineties.

Stanford’s got back into the good graces of FOX 4 a few years ago when Tommy Chong was the Grand Marshall of our St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Chong was also playing Stanford’s that weekend, so he promoted both on air and it went just fine. Though Stanford’s has been a regular guest on KCTV 5 and TV 41, we are just back with FOX 4.

That leads us to today’s Chris Franjola interview, which you can still see on FOX 4’s website. After a very funny interview, the anchor thanked Chris for the interview and encouraged the audience to see him at the show this weekend. Franjola replied, ‘I just love Stanford’s, Kansas City and doing NBC News.’ The interviewer told him, ‘You are at FOX 4, not NBC.’ With a big smile on his face, Chris responded with ‘Oh Shit, I’m sorry.’ My heart sunk and I thought, ‘Here we go again’ as it went out over the live feed.

Luckily, everyone on the set was laughing, even the producers. I apologized for the s-bomb being dropped, they assured me they were not upset and thought it was very funny, and in fact, even replayed it later in the show.

You will also see Chris Franjola this May with Chelsea Handler at Starlight Theater.

Chris Franjola will be at Stanford’s tonight and Saturday night for two shows each night. Some shows are already sold out, so call (913)400-7500 if you want to see the shows. Show times are 7:45 pm and 9:45 pm nightly.

Ditto, funniest thing I ever saw on that news show. What was up with Charlie Murphy who followed Franjola. Is that guy a dead turd or what.

Glazer you should be banned from all TV. This is a nice, quiet town, we don't need your Hollywood bullshit on family TV. Drop dead.

Glazer, you are a fucking idiot. Sure the producers and some of the staff/anchors thought it was funny and weren't upset when Franjola dropped an "S-bomb." Watch/listen to the clip again --- the in-studio staff gasped when he said "shit," so they know the possible ramifications.

And the "powers that be" at Fox-4 certainly won't be laughing when the FCC catches wind and fines the station.

Also, Fox-4 didn't replay the segment, you douchenozzle. You might want to know --- some of the people that follow TonysKC work in the local TV biz and have access to watch clips and read transcripts of any local and national TV newscast within minutes after appearing. There were only four mentions of Franjola's name the entire morning --- as a tease just before the 9am show start, as a tease at about 904am, another tease just before the segment break at 918am and the actual segment itself.

Go smoke another bowl, dumbass.

Do you think Tommy Chong would have came to Kansas City if he knew Ashcroft was going to but him?

Fox 4 is on par with Wonder Bread.

Wonder bread is probably higher quality when you think about it.

as usual. CG makes first two posts..praising his article, and dissing the competition at the Improv.

Charlie Murphy is incredibly funny.

meanwhile - no man alive has EVER watched
Chelsea Handlers chick-chat show--

so who'd want to see one of her assistants?




Byron Funkhouser said...

Ms. 10:47 is an anonymous pussy. You are a crazy bitch.

Ms. 11:38 is bat shit crazy. Thinks he has psychic powers.

There seems to be a lot of mental illness in City Kansas. I thought you were supposed to be known for your world class, mental health facilites?

Now that you mention mental health facilities did you find one that has a bed for you?

Byron Funkhouser said...

I don't need one. I think you do, though.

Well most shows of any kind have some comps or vips and then some, normal. I don't know what the deal was with this show. the guy is an in demand act right now so not surprised it was busy. the tv thing helped I'm sure. glazer is good with press.
