Daily Show Writer Would Like to be the Next Andy Rooney [Video]

Elliott Kalan: America’s next Andy Rooney?

Elliott Kalan likes to complain about things. The Daily Show writer can go on forever (or at least one whole minute) on his irritation with gum, fancy pork-pie hat stores in your neighborhood, pre-made sandwiches, and generic movie titles.

So now that Andy Rooney has officially stepped down from his role as “old cranky guy” on 60 Minutes, Mr. Kalan would like to humbly submit his application for the job of professional complainer.

Hey, if it doesn’t work out with 60 Minutes, maybe Mr. Kalan could team up with Larry David on some new project about whining.
