Yesterday, Samuel L. Jackson asked the Reddit community to write him a 300-word monologue, promising that he'll record a video of himself reading the monologue that gets the most upvotes tonight. Comedian Eugene Mirman (Bob's Burgers, Flight of the Conchords) rose to the challenge and crafted the following crazy 300-word monologue, which you can go to Reddit and support before it's too late and Samuel L.

Inside the Bell House were comedians Eugene Mirman, Sarah Silverman, Jim Gaffigan, astrobiologist Dr. David Grinspoon, and Neil DeGrasse Tyson, the heir to Carl Sagan's project of popularizing science. They, plus a few hundred fans, were recording StarTalk Live!, Tyson and Mirman's co-hosted science/comedy radio show, as part of the 5th annual Eugene Mirman [...]
