Fred Willard makes me laugh so hard. He's brilliant.

It's absolutely hysterical.
I think the full version is on a compilation, I just can't remember which. I'm old enough to have seen the original a few times but I've seen the full version on network Tv since then, I just don't remember what it was. It's possible it was the SNL '20' back in '95, they had a two hour special on network TV (this could also have been '90, 15 year celebration) Regardless, it's on something...

I would say it's on the Best of Martin Short, but he was only on SNL for one year. Come to think of it, all those guys were only on SNL for one year. 1984-85.

85-86 was the Anthony Michael Hall, Randy Quaid year.
And then the rebirth, 86-87 Phil Hartman, Dana Carvey, enough said.

That skit is immortal, if you can ever catch Martin Short doing Jackie Thomas junior, that is some of the funniest shit ever.

It was the SNL 15 in '90, I used to rent that video frequently from Blockbuster. It's a shame it wasn't on the SNL 25, but I think they wanted to forget anything that didn't involve Eddie Murphy and was pre-'87.

Jackie Roger's 100,000 Jackpot Wad, wow

I wonder if I like these movies, will I like the old SCTV show?

I saw a preview for it before Marie Antoinette this weekend - I can't wait!

I have to add my favorite Guest movie quote: "I hate you and I hate your ASS FACE!"

The only thing I've seen of his is Spinal Tap. I'll have to get busy at the video store.

I actually loved Spinal Tap so much that I bought it. I've never been big on the movie-buying thing, but that one is made for repeated viewings.

My absolute favourite line, from Nigel, is when they're discussing the album cover for Smell The Glove: "How much more black could this be? None more black."

Actually, Spinal Tap was directed by Rob Reiner, but it's still a Guest-related classic nonetheless.

If you liked that, you have to see Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, and A Mighty Wind. All in that order.

I Waiting for Guffman. I can't get enough of Corky.

I just realized I haven't seen A Mighty Wind yet. Definitely adding it to my Netflix queue

I loooove A Mighty Wind. "A Kiss At the End of the Rainbow" is so pretty, a little spot of sweetness in all the funny. Actually, that movie has a touch of sweetness throughout, which is nice.

Crazy enough, I don't think SCTV is all that funny. I havent been able to view a decent enough compilation or anything.

Granted, I wouldn't claim to be near the "expert" on SCTV as SNL, I've only seen less than 10 SCTV episodes (NBC used to run them after SNL years ago and Comedy Central ran them for a very short time), all those funny people, I just felt it was rather underwhelming.

I am an SNL geek, I've probably seen every episode since the 85/86 season and lots from before then, of course. I am very opinionated about the show.

I think it's awesome that you know the Jackie Rogers skit, it's not one of the typical favorites.
I don't know what it is but Martin Short just cracks me up, I think that shit is funnier than Grimley.

I love the more obscure SNL shit.
Here is one example:

You just linked one of my favorite all time sketches.

The H is O my friend.

"I'm going to have Glenn Frye's stank all over me."

The 75/76 season is getting released on DVD, if they do that with every season, I'm buying the 84/85 and 92/93 seasons in a heartbeat.
