Andy Samberg sees his friend Seth Meyers’ political deep dive Late Night segment “A Closer Look” and he raises it these incredibly silly ideas.
“I’ve been working on some stuff, and not just movies and TV, I developed a couple of ideas for your show,” he told Meyers on Wednesday night in an interview (you can skip to 5:40 unless you want to watch the whole equally silly chat about Meyers’ dog Frisbee).
“Like you know how you do ‘A Closer Look’? So I was thinking that I could do one,” he said. “You kind of do, like, a deep dive in politics, but I would do more of a macro view of it, in a new segment that I like to call: ‘A Further Look’.'”
“OK, so people in politics are mad, and everyone thinks that they’re right. But the people on the other side of the issue, they think that they’re right. This has been ‘A Further Look’.”
When the pair aren’t giggling like a bunch of school kids, Samberg’s other ideas extend to “A Farther Look” and “A Farthing Look” and just generally taking the piss out of his pal’s segment. It’s silly fun.
