The one and only Ron Burgundy, aka Will Ferrell, stopped by every single late night show Thursday night as a surprise guest to promote the second season of his iHeartRadio podcast, simply titled, The Ron Burgundy Podcast. Although, the legendary anchorman wasn't just doing typical interviews promoting the show, he performed hilariously bad standup routines on each show.
On Late Night With Seth Meyers, Ferrell got into a fight with his hipster ventriloquist dummy. While on Conan, he busted out some prop comedy that would make Carrot Top proud. Following his standup bit on The Late Late Show With James Corden, Ferrell even sat down with Corden when the animal expert from the San Diego Zoo came out with an alligator, a cougar and a skunk, the latter of which, had the comedian on the run. "It's the only animal that keeps me up at night," Ferrell said of the adorable skunk.
Ferrell spent the most amount of time on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, where he tried out some political humor. "Trade wars, right? Everyday all we hear is trade war. Trade war with China, trade war with Mexico. We even had a trade war with Canada, what was that about?" Ferrell commented as the crowd began to boo. "Yeah, boo! I'm with you. I hate Canadians."
Fans took to Twitter to show their love for the iconic anchorman's return to TV.
Although, not everyone loved it.
Overall, it was a great night of comedy, but since being an anchorman is in Burgundy's blood, Colbert wanted to know what he thought was the biggest news story of 2019. Ferrel sid, "The biggest story of 2019, and I will go on the record as saying, is I think the Bueller Report, the Ferris Bueller report."
