NIGHT CHAT INTERNSHIP: CHECK IN WITH SUPERVISOR
NIGHT CHAT INTERNSHIP:
CHECK IN WITH SUPERVISOR
Check in with your Boss:
"Right on time - in showbiz, that means you're late. I've got two tasks you can do."
Go to Target to get 60 Baby Dolls
WARM UP COMIC STOPS YOU ON YOUR WAY OUT:
"Hey, can I try out some new material on you?"
"Sorry, I'm in a rush"
On your way out the door, you see a writer.
"Hi, Jackie (not your name) - listen, if you could run to Starbs and grab seven iced coffees, that'd be great, thanks."
They're out of cup-holders at Starbucks, but you only have a few minutes to get them to the office.
Take 4 up now, and come grab the rest later.

Try carrying all 7 by hand.

Ignore them - you're in a rush!
Writer is offended you ignored them - ya fired!
"Sure, but only for a minute."
Give honest critiques
COMIC IS OFFENDED:
"You just made a somewhat (mid-level) powerful enemy."
Pretend to laugh.
COMIC IS ANNOYED:
"I'm not looking for an ego boost, I'm looking for honesty about my craft."
Help feng shui the host's office.
On your way to the office, you see Cate Blanchett (tonight's guest) head into the Late Night kitchen.
Go straight to the office.
Run into a talent assistant.:
"Thank God you're here, we've got an emergency - I need you to pick the seeds out of these 50 strawberries and arrange them in Mariah Carrey's dressing room in a visually pleasing, functional fashion."
Can't - I've got a feng-schui emergency going on.
Your feng-schui skills are terrible - the host says the energy is all off, and the show will suffer. Ya fired!
Mariah Carrey thinks the way you arranged the strawberries looks a little "derivative" - ya fired!
Follow her - it's friggin Cate Blanchett!
Be 100% silent.
She is understandably freaked out by the silent person hovering in the kitchen.
Try to speak
Your boss finds out you tried to interact with a guest - ya fired!
Moonwalk out of the room.
Your boss hates when interns talk to guests (and moonwalking as means of an exit) - ya fired!
Your boss is not happy you talked to a guest. Ya fired! (But you looked into the eyes of God herself, so maybe it was worth it)
