This is amazing and delightful, and I can only thank Amelie Gillette for bringing it to the attention of the American People.
The host of the show does a great job, I think, in keeping it together while the behind the camera people laugh uproariously.
Does anyone still have that MP3 of Tracy going crazy on morning radio for like 20 minutes straight? I think I posted it here once, but I lost it.

On this week's show, we entertain two wonderful (and entertaining) guests.
Jimmy Carr is one of the UK's most popular standup comics. Here in the US, he's hosted the game show Distraction on Comedy Central and appeared on Late Night and The Tonight Show. His new book, written with his long-time friend Lucy Greeves, is "Only Joking: What's So Funny About Making People Laugh?"
Then we talk with Amy Sedaris. She's a rabbit lover and taxidermied squirrel owner, as well as the author of "I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence." The book provides domestic advice of many types, ranging from recipes to costumes to how to make fake food out of felt.
Please share your thoughts on the show in the comments section!
