Best comedy special EVER!
30 July 2003 | by coatSee all my reviews

Words can not express how funny this is! I have this on VHS (taped from cable) and I wish it would be released on DVD! If you only know Martin Short for his horrible movies and funny Jiminy Glick show, you HAVE to see this! Since it is rather difficult to come by, you may have to find someone who is as crazy as I am and has it on tape.

With characters like Ed Grimley, Jackie Rogers Jr, Irving Cohen, and Nathan Thurm, who needs Saturday Night Live?? Martin Short had enough funny characters for his own show! I wish he would revive some of these classic characters.

All in all, good clean humor which also includes memorable impersonations of Jerry Lewis, Montgomery Clift, and Martina Navatralova. John Candy and Eugene Levy also make hilarious appearances.
