This week’s episode of The The Ding Wrong Show—the new online show created and hosted by Meghan Jenkins, recorded live on Zoom each Monday night and posted on YouTube immediately after—featured a song, “Ditto Kiddo,” by comedian and actor Jeff Richards, which was danced to by the “TTDWS Dancers,” and “The Aldrich Report,” read by John C. and written by Mark Aldrich.
It is not known if Mr. Richards is aware that he finally can add to his long list of credentials (cast member on Saturday Night Live) the fact that he now has had his work featured in a show with work by Mark Aldrich. Mr. Aldrich is happy to share the spotlight.
For the second straight week, the show also featured an appearance by Joe Distarce, and of course, Panda. The weekly speculation about whether or not Panda wears Meghan’s clothes when she appears or if this is an optical illusion continued.
Ever mindful of discipline, Ms. Jenkins found it necessary to restate to everyone one rule: no sex among cast members while the show exists, unless the two parties have sex in front of the rest of the cast “on the show.” (Panda’s many overtures to Mr. Aldrich, and Mr. Aldrich’s many text messages to Mr. Richards must be confessed here.)
The reason Ms. Jenkins felt the need to reinforce this rule was because John C. had spoken to a woman he is interested in (not Panda) about a new show he is on and dot dot dot: needless to say, the unnamed woman did not join the show as a new cast member, even though John C. declared this week that the rule about sex on the broadcast “had been my intention.”
Meghan writes: “I am looking for ladies who would be interested in going on a Zoom date with John. Please email me Mjjenkinss@gmail.com with subject I WANT TO DATE JOHN. Panda and I will sort thru the contestants for a round of dates. Like The Love Connection!”
Late in the broadcast, John C. declared the show “is like Jaws, only you’re [Meghan] a pleasant shark.”
“Thank you,” replied Ms. Jenkins. “Rahr!”
“Is that the sound sharks make?”
