I'm looking forward to the concert. I'm a big fan of one of the bands that will be appearing on the show...I assume it's for the mentioned concert.

his character's name is Craig Middlebrooks - he's played by Billy Eichner - and even in real life he's that loud and intense - he's got a show on the Fuse network called 'Billy on the Street' - it's a scream (literally he's screaming into random people's face on the street about pop cultured question, and giving them a dollar if they are right)

last week's rant was even funnier IMO:

“’Samantha’ in the Boardroom – ‘Miranda’ in the bedroom
I know it’s not ideal, but it’s WHO I AM ...
This is my friend Madison – she’s amazing AND SHE DROVE ME HERE!”

I've seen people on other forums talking about how funny this Craig character is as well, am I the only one who absolutely hates this character? He's never gotten even a smile out of me. I find him unbearably annoying, anyone else?

I enjoy him in small doses. I think Billy's best appearances have been on Conan.

His schtick is really starting to wear thin.
He's loud and intense and that's it. It's his characteristic and the joke. So every time he talks it's like he's telling the same joke over and over.

I still like the show, but it's obvious they're just scrounging for ideas. Leslie and gang trying to trying to set up a concert to bring the two towns together feels too much like her bringing a fair to Pawnee. Tom still trying to get a business venture going. It alls feels like they're just rehashing.

I love Craig - he works best in small doses but I find him hilarious. "It's finger painting for adults and I HATE IT!"
