I haven't seen this special for years, but have committed large chunks of it to memory... One of the great little-known comic gems in existence! That is, if it is still in existence. Short brilliantly sends up showbiz egomania years before it was fashionable. And there are some inspired bits of Short and Christopher Guest improv post-Spinal Tap and pre-everything-else Christopher Guest has done. If you think that Jiminy Glick thing Short's been doing of late is any good (and I don't), you owe it to yourself to see this. This is the kind of work Short was capable of before he felt he had to pander for easy laughs in his Glick fat suit.
