Happy birthday, Martin Short.

Martin Short, probably my all-time favorite improvisational comedian, is 60 years old today. Which is all the excuse I need to stream this tune...

“A Big Black Lady Stops the Show” is from Short’s 2006 Broadway show, “Fame Becomes Me.” (The big black lady is Capathia Jenkins.)

I love Martin Short also. Some of the bits he did for SCTV are priceless.

SCTV, SNL, all cool. But it's Jiminy Glick that pushes him to the top of my list. Improvisational genius!

A comedy legend, a modern day Liberace?

When I watch Short do Glick Im in awe. Never thought he was funny before that, but then again I was a kid at the time he was popular
