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.".
