The Funniest Talk Show of All Time!! (Sorry, Johnny, Dave, Jay, Jimmy)
We have never enjoyed any talk show like we enjoyed Martin Short's show! We laughed until we cried at his hilarious skits - like those featuring Jiminy Glick or the dramatic high school spoof, "Herbert Hoover High"! We are still quoting lines from Marty's 1999-2000 talk show! There is no one on Earth as funny as Martin Short. Period. There are very, very few comic actors that make us cry from laughing - but Martin Short does that to us all the time! (His hysterical movie, "Clifford," makes us cry with laughter every time we watch it!) Marty's talk show was so memorable: Who could forget Jiminy Glick's diet pill commercial, "Sliminies," or the drunk teacher on "Herbert Hoover High" who was based on Henry Jones' character, "LeRoy" in the 1956 film, "The Bad Seed"! Or Marty playing both empty-headed "Stefan" and emotionally tortured "Sheldon" on "Herbert Hoover High"? Talented Mark McGrath and Mary Sheer added the icing to the cake of this show! (What a cast!) Marty's talk show received 2 Emmys and many nominations and deserved to last forever but, apparently, the 2,000 Nielsen viewers that control TV would rather watch less creative, mundane, boring, gossipy shows like "The View." Martin Short is a comic genius and we miss him on TV!!
