Without a doubt, a legend in sketch comedy
27 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

Only words can describe this truly gifted comic actor. From his outrageous, true to life impersonations of Frank Sinatra and Bill Clinton to his brilliantly offbeat characters like Anal Retentive Chef and Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer. Phil Hartman remains a legend in sketch comedy. This tape, which should've been much, much longer features some of Hartman's best work. He'll definitely be remembered for his contribution to comedy.
