2 Funny: Everybody’s Talking ‘Bout Sully

New year. New month. New stuff.

The first 2 Funny of 2016 is a number performed by Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert on Comedy Central’s Night of Too Many Stars concert to give support for autism, hosted by Jon Stewart. Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert decide to perform an impromtu musical number in praise of retired airline captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger.

For those who don’t know, Chesley Sullenberger is a retired airline captain and aviation safety consultant. He was hailed as a national hero in the United States when he successfully executed an emergency water landing of US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River off Manhattan, New York City, after the aircraft was disabled by striking a flock of Canada geese during its initial climb out of LaGuardia Airport on January 15, 2009. All of the 155 passengers and crew aboard the aircraft survived.

The More You Know

This is another one of the bits that I’ll be forever envious of the 2 Steves for coming up with. Here’s the live on-stage performance:

 

….And here’s the recorded in studio version.

I couldn’t decide which version of these to showcase, so I did them both.

  1. Funny you bring up this song (Awesome by the way!), because this year Clint Eastwood is directing a biopic of Sully starring Tom Hanks. Probably wasn’t intentional, but good timing!

    • No, your mentioning the biopic just now is the first that I’ve heard of it. I had actually planned on highlighting the song here earlier last year, but man, I couldn’t have planned that any better if I had tried!
