Ken Jeong’s SportsCenter Career Kicks Off With Some Random Nudity
Ken Jeong guest hosted SportsCenter today alongside the lovely Lindsay Czarniak, and it went, well, it went. The 6:00 pm airing started off with Jeong walking with Czarniak through the ESPN offices, discussing how seriously he takes his journalistic duties despite his profane streak (see Hangover, The).
Then a naked grown man busted out of a locker and ran between the two. Funny? I guess. The whole idea ended up being more novel than anything (Jeong did his best, but it fell short of being as funny as it should have been). Though the GIF below suggests otherwise, they really approached his appearance as if he were a legitimate ESPN employee. As far as promotional stunts go, it worked, because Twitter was buzzing/raving about it.
As far as comedy goes, it was eh. (Though we love it in principle.) He seems like he'd be a good analyst on NBA Countdown. Next time, put him on a show where he can utilize his personality. Save the desk stuff for Will Farrell characters...
