    I figured that the demolition would take much longer than people figured. Trying to peel back the layers in a historic building is monumentally time consuming, fiddly work.

    On that extreme home makeover show they demolish, clear, rebuild, furnish and landscape an entire house in a week. Not saying this isn't hard work, but it's the kind of work you can throw a TON of guys at and have done relatively quickly.

    Was a bit over the top. Even more so then his persona on The Report. I'm kinda hoping he acts more like himself on the show. Maybe a bit campy like Conan, but not over the top like that video.

    That can only happen with a lot of work done ahead of time and the cooperation of municipalities. For example, they'd have to have all permits filed and issued ahead of time, and then they'd have to have city inspectors available to sign off on something at 3 am if that's when it gets finished in order for the next trade to start at 3:05 am.

    Given that the Ed Sullivan Theater is a designated as a historic building and that it's located in NYC which is heavily unionized, I don't think it's as easy as simply throwing a couple hundred extra people in there and getting it done in a week.

    What if his normal persona is even more outrageous than his character? ;)

    Remains to be seen...

    His face looks very weirdly photoshopped in that picture, like they made him a lot thinner, and with an insane Joker type smile. was that on purpose?

    I don't think it's photoshopped at all to distort his face.
    He's always had that bizarre ear thing too, where one of his ears very different from the other. It's why he can do his ear trick:

    His father was a leprechaun. That's why he has one pointy ear. :cool:
