On Casey Wilson on Doing a Birthday Suit Birthday Dance With Whitney Cummings

There is absolutely nothing funny about two incredibly sexy women pulling each other's clothes off and dancing naked with each other. I take that kind of imagery very seriously and often with lubricant.

On You Ready for a Film Noir Puppet Comedy From Jim Henson's Son?

I don't mean to sound like a wet blanket, but doesn't that description sound EXACTLY like the plot of 'Who Framed Roger Rabbit'?

On The Strange Fad of Comedian-Based Saturday Morning Cartoons

@WeevilWobble - Oh absolutely- I don't blame him at all for never wanting to do it again. But he did host once and he should have hosted many more times after that. Tony Danza hosted TWICE for God's sake.

Bob Odenkirk said he was the "most burned" person in the 'Live From New York' book by Tom Shales, meaning they would repeatedly ask him to host and then un-invite him at the last second when someone better came along. He would have been an excellent five-timer. He was made for sketch comedy, not cartoons or even movies (except 'Who's Harry Crumb?'- That movie rules). Awesome article - thanks for responding.

On The Strange Fad of Comedian-Based Saturday Morning Cartoons

Brian Boon - Have you ever read the book "Saturday Night-A Backstage History of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE" by Doug Hill & Jeff Weingard? If you haven't, I highly recommend it - but in that book there's a picture of John Candy and Jim Belushi and the caption reads "Host John Candy". Also IMDB lists him as hosting here - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0695024/. So John Candy did in fact host Saturday Night Live. Do I win a comedy nerd award for pointing out a mistake???
