Thanks to CC Insider, I now know that today is the 10th Anniversary of Phil Hartman’s murder. Very sad. I even remember where I was when I heard: I was working at The Wilma Theater. I logged on to AOL after lunch (yes when people actually used AOL) and saw that he had been murdered. Man, that destroyed me.
Anywho, I love this sketch and still laugh long and hard at it. I just recently noticed that around the halfway mark it looks like Phil and Jan Hooks (as “Sinbad” O’Connor) start to break. I can’t blame them, it’s a great goddamn sketch. (Rumor has it that Robert Smigel wrote it. Anyone know?)
