This special, which I luckily taped off of Showtime on a crappy old belt-driven VCR back in the '80s, is a scream. It's a shame that no Hollywood picture has used Short to this extent. Short as Doug Henning, Pierre Trudeau, Nathan Thurm, Ed Grimley, Jerry Lewis (in "Tender Fella"), Montgomery Clift ("I Married Monty," a fictional sitcom) and especially as Jackie Rogers, Jr. are all classic, hysterical stuff. My VHS tape is on its last legs. If only this title was available on DVD, I'd buy copies for everyone on my holiday gift list.
