Phil Hartman’s Hand-Written Feedback to a Fan Who Sent Him a Tape Is Heartbreaking

Here’s a letter that Phil Hartman wrote to an aspiring comedian who had sent him a tape of his work in 1997. In case you were ever wondering if Phil Hartman was a good guy, well, try to think of who else would not only respond to a letter/tape like this, but would listen to it and sent back a multi-page hand-written note with specific feedback and well wishes. This was when Phil was at the peak of his career, doing Newsradio, The Simpsons and a slew of other projects, so it’s not like he wasn’t busy. One of the all-time greatest, and gone far, far too soon.
