Clifford’s Audition for "Late Night"

Clifford’s Late Night Audition from Nancy Bailey on Vimeo.

On Nov 14, 2009, my horse Clifford auditioned for Late Night’s “Stupid Pet Tricks” by painting a portrait of Dave. Clifford is an abstract artist specializing in watercolor. The casting agency did send the portrait to the the Late Night studio. If nothing else, we hope Dave was flattered by Clifford’s vision of him… Even if Clifford doesn’t think he is funny.

Clifford auditioned for “Stupid Pet Tricks” and Channel 6 sent me the news clip. When I approached the casting agent after the audition, I held up the portrait Clifford had painted, and asked, “Do you think Dave would want this?” She said they would send it to his studio along with the tapes. The guy who chewed the top off of the aluminum can overheard this. He came over, held up the mangled can, and asked, “Do you think Dave would want this?” She said, “No, I don’t think so.”


About Nancy J. Bailey

Artist, author, bad karaoke singer. Woodsy ragamuffin. Mom of a horse named Clifford who plays fetch and paints with watercolors. He visits libraries and schools with me, to promote literacy and making the world a better place. Yes, he is house trained, no, he doesn't live in my house! I have written three books about Clifford. But my newest book, THE NORTH SIDE OF DOWN, is co-written by my awesome sister Amanda, who has Down syndrome. Her unexpected one-liner wisecracks can always make me laugh. If you make me laugh, you've made my day!
