Who will emerge victorious in the battle of the hosts with the most? Okay, so it's not really a battle, more like a rare opportunity to see two professional chatterboxes swap stories, expose a few trade secrets and generally learn a thing or two from each other. This month The Greg Proops Chat Show (past guests include David Cross, Greg Behrendt, Russell Brand and Flight of the Conchords) welcomes to Largo Late Late Show host, former Drew Carey Show player, kilt enthusiast and damn proud citizen of the U.S. of A Craig Ferguson. Plug alert: Expect mention of the frequently touring standup comic's HarperCollins memoir, American on Purpose, as well as a few affectionate ribbings of Proops' Whose Line Is It Anyway cohort and current Price Is Right host, Carey. And, perhaps addressing Ferguson's frequent laments over his lack of a backing band, musical maestro Jon Brion and exceedingly talented singer-songwriter Nellie McKay will be among the evening's additional guests.
