1) Years ago when I wrote for David Letterman we would make these fake broadway shows and put them on at the end of the show and never tell the audience they were fake. No one ever knew.
2) Afterward the crowd filed out as if they didn’t happen. It was so anticlimactic and I wondered why I wanted to do them. Dave loved them though. Did em with @CarterBays @HimymCraig and @TheTweetOfGod himself David Javerbaum.
3) Eventually we created a boy band no one knew was fake. They appeared on TRL and received 10s of 1000s of emails from fans. It was @Matt_Morrison’s first acting job!
