“Inspiration is for amateurs, the rest of us just show up and get to work. Every great idea I ever had grew out of work itself.”

This is a Colton Dunn-written sketch from tonight’s episode. Also tonight is a sketch about the tea party that I’m particularly proud of. The whole sketch is one long, complicated steadicam shot, and it features Rob Delaney and Janet Varney, two of my favorite performers. Hopefully it’ll be one of the sketches selected to go online so I can share it here, but the only sure way to see it is to watch the show tonight at 10:30 / 9:30 on Comedy Central.
I was actually gasping watching this video. So fucking funny.
I said, “Fred, I don’t know if this is going to be possible to sing,” May says. “And he went, ‘I’ll fucking do it, darling’ — vodka down — and went in and killed it, completely lacerated that vocal.
Honestly I can’t remember where I saw this but I made a note of it and thought it was just awesome.
It’s Brian May recalling a moment he had with Freddie Mercury when recording a song.
I believe this song is the best song of all time.
The thing that I always feel about this song, is that the essential story of my life - and your life - exists and can be known between minutes 2.45 and 5.00. Stop, listen to your life.
