Update: 1.14.2010 — MercuryNews.com has an interview with Neil Patrick Harris discussing SF Sketchfest and how he’s looking forward to one performance in particular:
Q Are there any performers at Sketchfest you’re especially excited about?
A John Hodgman. I just worked on a movie with him. And I got him to be the voice-over announcer on the Emmys.
When they announce the winner, you have a voice-over person say, “This is Michael’s third nomination.” I thought it would be fun to have John Hodgman do made-up ones like, “This is Khan’s second win; he was raised by packs of wolves.” I kind of wanted it to be one of those TiVo moments, with John in a booth making stuff up.
