Jerry Stiller is the man!!
2 August 2006 | by TOMNELSee all my reviews

Guest starring Jerry Stiller.

Mandrake is a radio host known as the Devil's Advocate that taunts and treats all of his radio listeners like dirt. This episode is just Jerry Stiller talking to people in his work place, but things change ever so slightly each time we see Mandrake. His hair gets longer, his nails get sharper, he starts decaying. This episode will be known for it's disgusting makeup effects especially towards the end. It will also be remembered for it's twist ending, and morbidity. It can be found on VHS volume 2.

My rating: Excellent episode. 23 mins. TV PG LV
