Tiffany Haddish and Natasha Leggero?!
13 October 2018 | by jsweez87See all my reviews

Was just watching the old episodes and saw Natasha Leggero in a bit part as a stripper and then BAM I see Tiffany Haddish in a same bit role. Lmao that's crazy! Great show and great episode introducing Danny Devito in one of his greatest roles ever. Funny to see his beginning to where he's at now with the character. Classic episode
