Gave me more insight into Martin Short than I needed.
3 July 2004 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

When the host needs a number-two man you know it's only a matter of time before things start to deteriorate. Martin seems like a very cheerful, good natured host until you see that's just the way he operates all the time, and his dark side comes out in sketches like the messed-up Jimminy Glick (Short's revenge for all the other stars having more success than him I think!). It was obvious Martin Short had some issues and no surprise his show didn't last too long. If Short wasn't such a loser this could have been a legitimate variety show.
