Kathie Lee Presents Her 'Friday Funny' (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted May 27th 2011 2:50PM
Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford on 'Today'Kathie Lee Gifford is not a comedian. But sometimes on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), she will take a little time out from drinking and selling handy products to tell a joke. The segment is called 'Kathie Lee's Friday Funny,' and because the canned laughter that introduces it is a little underwhelming, Gifford and Hoda Kotb enhance it with their own forced laughter.

Today's joke was about a man who will inherit millions of dollars in a family fortune, and goes out looking for a wife. "One evening at an investment meeting, he spotted the most beautiful woman he'd ever seen in his life," said Gifford. She was breathtaking, and the man made his introductions, and told the woman of his impending fortune..."

We won't spoil the punchline for you. We'll let Gifford do that.

Well its like this....some people like Kathy Lee spend their time on television making enough money to afford the things most of us would love to have, and would buy if we could afford them. Then there are the people who waste their time at home pounding out criticisms of others on their keyboard and getting NOWHERE. There is an old saying that serves everyone that follows it very well......If you can't say something nice about someone....then say nothing ! And if you can't find something nice to say it means you are not looking beyond your own prejudices, because everyone has some good qualities.

i have more humor in my forekin than kathylee has in her hole body. jokes are classless and delivery sucks. Where are those psychotic kathylee fan club members when you need them. Ever read that story of 2 bums who kidnap a mischievous kid for ransome and kids parents, when ransome demanded, said...keep 'em! guess who that would be? "hey let me sing...there's no business like show business"...ok stop singing, we'll return you to your show klg

Good joke by Kathie Lee. She and Koda are greast together! Q. Are they really drinking alcolhol? Bad message. Because of DUI we need to discourage drinking!

Why doesn't Kathy Lee just disappear with her skirt-chasing 100 year old husband.

If the TV is on when KL comes on, I either change channels or turn it off! I love HODA but being on this show with KL is really bringing her down; she is a class act sharing the stage with someone a lot of us don't appreciate. Does it bother anyone but me that she has to tell us constantly what a Christian she is but her comments and snide remarks about others certainly don't reflect what I perceive a Christian to be?!?! She seems to care more about all the material stuff she has than people in general. Don't get me started on dear 'ole Frank . . .
