Now This Is Improvising

Admittedly, I've always thought that Letterman is an arrogant idiot, but if this doesn't have you peeing your pants laughing, I want to know about it.

  1. Julia Child is truly one of the funniest humans ever to have LIVED. But I still can't believe she made him eat raw ground beef.

  2. Beef tartar is seriously just raw meat? I guess I won't be trying that anytime soon.

  3. I remember serving beef tartar all the time when I worked in a little French bistro in Ottawa . . .

  4. Beef tartar is generally a higher quality meat ground during prep and not purchased that way.

    Great video! Great improv!

  5. It's raw beef with raw egg, a little onion, and salt and pepper.

    If that makes a difference.

  6. That is funny as all get out. But I always think Julia Child is grand. I think she improvised mightily well. I often have an urge to slap Letterman.

  7. I get how Meryl Streep could play her in that movie now. Probably didn't even have to learn the accent. Wanna see it now. xx

  9. And they look alike! Could it be a split screen with David Letterman in drag? xx

  10. Sal: She was a powerhouse. He was under her spell :-)

    Wendy: I practically spit coffee out while watching it.

    Raven: It's got some raw egg too :-) Seriously, though. It's excellent.

    Miss C: I love it, but I'm very fussy about it for obvious reasons.

    Ricky: You are totally right. When I've made it at home I use incredibly high quality beef and I don't chop it till ready to eat.

    D.: It makes a difference! :-)

    Mardel: She even manages to make Letterman a little less smarmy here. But only a little.

    Hammie: Didn't love the movie though it was a fine way to spend a couple of entertainment hours. I'm going to watch it again to see how they look alike...

    Belle: And I believe it :-)

  11. That is f'ing hilarious! I have worked with at least 2 of the authors listed on the Accidental Cook book cover, and never have we recorded a TV show segment like that!
