Maura Tierney Shares the Sweetest Phil Hartman Story Ever

“I do remember one thing he said to me. Joe Rogan was being so fucking mean to me one day—and mostly we were all friends, but Joe could be a weirdo—and I was sort of upset about it, so I was just sitting over in the corner. And Phil came over and put his arm around me, and he said, ‘You know, I just want to tell you you’re loved.’ Isn’t that really nice? I know you expected me to tell some wacky story about Phil, but he was like that, too. He just put his arm around me and said that. He was so sweet. He was a really nice man.”

Maura Tierney shares a short but sweet memory from her time working with Phil Hartman on NewsRadio in a new interview with The A.V. Club.
