Storyline

Jiminy Glick, a character first introduced on the The Martin Short Show now has his own show. His gross incompetence and clueless confidence shine in conversations with various celebrities. There's also an opening monologue with Glick that usually involves his bandleader Adrien VanVoorhees (Michael McKean), plus commercial and movie parodies featuring other characters.

Extremely funny... but why?
17 August 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although I find Martin Short personally to be a little conceited, he is one of the funniest people in comedy. This show is no disappointment. I find it very funny, but cannot quite put my finger on it. Part of it may be Short's antics during interviews, such as literally pouring a dish of gum drops down his throat, stuffing an entire donut in his mouth in two seconds, or jumping around in his chair while trying to maintain a serious dialogue with his guests, at least on his end. Another fun aspect of this show is the parody commercials, which remind one of Saturday Night Live. All in all, I find this to be a very entertaining show.
