I'm still a bit in shock from the news that SXM is not picking up @FrankConniff's contract. This will be a thread.
I've worked with Frank on 3 different TV series & tons of live shows. When SXM first asked me to help launch a new channel Frank was the first person I called. I love his wit, his humanity, his passion, his knowledge and how he challenges and inspires me.
Im very sad about this. Frank and I have already discussed some new live shows and I hope he will work with me on some other ideas. TV writing staffs should take note that one of the best and smartest joke writers in America just became available.
For those who will still tune in I promise that @XorjeOliveares @TatianaZamis & I will continue to produce the smartest funniest & most subversive show we can; w/a broad spectrum of political, entertainment, journalistic, literary, activist & comedic guests our listeners expect
The show will not be the same without Frank. I will say more tomorrow on the show. i've already told him that if and/or when he wants to come back on the show I will be thrilled.
i hope everyone will subscribe to the Movie Signs with the Mads podcast which Frank does with @TraceBeaulieu and @CarolinaDoesOk itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/mov… - it is insightful and funny and they're all wonderful.
Also everyone needs to go see Frank & @TraceBeaulieu live on tour with their live movie riffing MST3K show @TheMadsAreBack themadsareback.com
And seriously, do yourself a favor and read all of Frank's hilarious books, which can all be found here on Amazon. amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_no…
Thank you, Frank; for making me a better comedian, better writer, better broadcaster. Thank you for being born & challenging me and for making TV, radio, standup & the world better. In a world of dudebros, pals & acquaintances thank you for being my friend. I love you.
I am proud of the show we did and the show we will continue to do and the Insight channel is still the only one that could let us do such a diverse show. I'm so proud that one of the funniest men in the world would work with me and be my friend.
