From Tobipedia:
John O'Creagh is an actor based in New York who has appeared in productions of "Anything Goes", "Pirates of Penzance", "The Fantasticks", "Equus", "King Lear", "Twelfth Night, and "Perfect Crime" in productions at the Paper Mill Playhouse, the Goodspeed Opera House, New York's Irish Rep, and at the Roundabout Theatre.  He toured around the world in "West Side Story" as Doc, and played Ben Franklin in countless productions of "1776",

For the Toobworld Dynamic he contributed citizens from episodes of 'Law & Order: SVU', 'John Adams', 'Kidnapped" and "A Knock At The Door".  (The one that doesn't count is from the American version of 'Life On Mars', who was a computer-generated dream figure.)

John also writes poems which he publishes on Facebook - his commentary on the socio-political trivia of the day.  In fact, Inner Toob published one this past Sunday.

'The Late Show with David Letterman'
(04/29/13 episode)

John O'Creagh suddenly ambled on stage as the down-east, down-home pitchman for Oyster Cove Seafood Syrup.  Made with oysters, clams, and mussels, the thick, grey syrup was supposedly good on pancakes and straight out of the bottle.......

Both Earth Prime-Time and Skitlandia

The late night talk shows straddle the dimensional fence when it comes to where they belong in the TV Universe.  On the one hand, these shows are referenced in other TV shows, so we know that - in this case - David Letterman is hosting 'The Late Show' on CBS in Toobworld.  But there are comedy sketches and fake commercials and news reports that would be equally at home in Skitlandia.

So here we have two different points of view for John's appearance on the show.  As a fake TV commercial, it belongs in Skitlandia where Oyster Cove Seafood Syrup would exist.

But that breakfast bilge wouldn't exist in Earth Prime-Time.  In Toobworld, 'Late Night' is an established TV show within a TV show in such programs as:
  • 'ER'
  • 'Dexter'
  • 'Seinfeld'
  • 'Frasier'
  • 'Entourage'
  • 'The Nanny'
  • 'The Office'
  • 'Love Monkey'
  • 'Close To Home'
  • 'How I Met Your Mother'
Not to mention TV shows set in alternate dimension, like 'The West Wing' and 'Studio 60'.  And it even exists in the Tooniverse.

So in that context, John O'Creagh appeared on TV sets across the TV America of the main Toobworld as he did a fake commercial sketch.  That means the main televersion of John O'Creagh appeared as himself doing a quick bit in the show within a show of 'Late Night' in Earth Prime-Time, while his Skitlandian televersion was doing an actual commercial for Oyster Bay Seafood Syrup.


Sorry about that, Chief......
