Don’t act like you’re not impressed, America. Ron Burgundy was all over late-night last night.
On Thursday night, Will Ferrell donned his immortal mustache once again, and appeared on a half-dozen late-night comedy shows as beloved anchorman Ron Burgundy. Burgundy made appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Late Night With Seth Meyers, The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, The Late Late Show With James Corden, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Conan.
Ron Burgundy was first introduced to America 15 years ago when Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy took America by storm, becoming the most quotable comedy since Austin Powers. The film made $90 million on a $26 million budget, and was followed up by a sequel, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. The film’s impact on comedy culture is still being felt today.
Ferrell was promoting the second season of his The Ron Burgundy Podcast, an iHeartRadio Original Podcast co-produced with Funny or Die. The podcast follows an interview format, and during season 1, Ferrell interviewed Peter Dinklage, RuPaul, Deepak Chopra, and various other celebrities in character as Burgundy.
On each of his late-night appearances, Ferrell performed standup in the kind of macho, antiquated style he perfected in The Anchorman films. He joked about Harvey Wallbangers with Stephen Colbert and did Carrot Top-style prop comedy on Conan.
See all six spots below.
Season 2 of The Ron Burgundy Podcast premieres today.
