[on leaving Saturday Night Live
(1975)] The shows are getting less sophisticated. There's less political satire. The younger audience loves Adam Sandler
. He appeals less to the intellect and more to that stand-up sensibility of "Let's go out there and be insane." I like Adam Sandler, but that's not my kind of comedy, so, yeah, in a way it makes me feel like, "Well, it's time for me to go.".
In a television interview, Hartman stated that he believed what clinched the Saturday Night Live
(1975) audition for him was when he was asked if there was anything else he wanted to show them. He replied that he could do any dialect. If they could name the dialect, he could do it. Dennis Miller was watching his audition, and shouted out, "Do French!". Hartman's reply was, "I don't do that.".
