Another week in Deniliquin No sleep

Drunk or not, that was one of Karl’s best performances

You’ve probably heard the news about Karl Stefanovic on the Today show on Monday morning. Following on from a late night at the Logies, Karl had his usual early start on the Today show, but was somewhat more happy and spontaneous than usual, prompting speculation that he was drunk at the time.

Having watched both the Today Tonight story, and further raw footage over at, I have to say that I believe Karl’s statement that he was not drunk, merely tired, as I don’t think there was enough slurring for him to be drunk…in fact I’m finding it hard to find any slurring.

Perhaps Karl downed a dozen cups of coffee…regardless of the cause, I thought Karl’s performance was well above his normal standard, and is well worth repeating, even if slightly toned down. Happy and spontaneous Karl is much more interesting than normal Karl, especially at 6am. have some raw footage at but I can’t find a way to embed it here.

    It just shows that Karl is human, and a thorough professional – imagine the headlines if he hadn’t showed up for work! What a trouper!

    Mmmm … apparently this is not the only video doing the rounds on the Internet on media personalities behaving “colourfully”:

    That’s precisely the one I was thinking of. A video which I decided to post online before anyone else would have the chance.

    Samuel, you have officially gained legend status! You dished it out to Karl long after you dished it out to yourself …. I like the new self deprecating Samuel!
