John Fugelsang Gets a Current TV Show

John Fugelsang Gets a Current TV Show

FishbowlLA was lucky enough to be at the Pantages this past weekend for the LA stop of Stephanie Miller’s “Sexy Liberal Comedy Tour.” Although she and radio compadre Hal Sparks were both excellent, the guy who really stole the show was another one of her radio-TV regulars, John Fugelsang.

Right on cue, Fugelsang announced this morning on Miller’s program broadcast live from the TCA that he is getting his own Current TV series in the fall, joining Miller, whose three-hour daily syndicated radio offering is now being broadcast. For the handsome young comedian and new father, this is a natural progression at the network, where he has appeared as a commentator and guest hosted for network personalities such as Eliot Spitzer and Jennifer Granholm.

From this morning’s accompanying release:

“We at Current are eager to bring John’s unique perspective on politics and the world around him to primetime,” commented Current TV chairman Al Gore. “He’s been a part of the Current family for a while now and we see just how much his voice resonates with our audience. His new show will nicely complement our growing lineup.”

“I view Jesus much the way I view Elvis,” Fugelsang says. “I love the guy, but some of the fan clubs terrify me. My new show on Current will be an attack ad on apathy; taking the flag back from phony patriots, taking the Bible back from the hypocrites, and taking Bath Salts away from Glenn Beck.”

2. very cool

John's always been a cool guy - a solid progressive, and his Twitter feed is good stuff.

Though I'll always envy him for getting to be a part of this:
