Martin Short

Born March 26, 1950

I LOVE Martin Short.

Noteworthy

  • Three Amigos – One of my all-time favorite comedies. Short plays Ned, one of the Amigos. His physicality, wit, and delivery are all top notch in this movie. Comedy perfection.
  • Innerspace – Fantastic Voyage meets the late 80s. Martin SHort and Dennis Quiad don’t even share the same scenes that often but they have such a fun chemistry in this movie. I am looking forward to re-visiting this one.
  • Jiminy Glick – Almost horrible and almost un-loveable, Glick has the interviewing bed-side-manner of a hammer wrapped in black licorice. That being said he is a train wreck that is hard to turn away from.
  • I Must Say: My Life as a Humble Comedy Legend – This is a wonderful snapshot of Martin Short’s life. I listened to the audio version of this, which he read, if you are a fan of audio books – get this one.

I think I’m funny because my family, my siblings were funny.

Paul Newman - Born January 26, 1925 I am digging further back in our pop-culture consciousness for today's entry. Paul Newman is timeless and if you are not familiar then you need to do yourself a favor. Go find some of his flicks online and start streaming. Here are...

You Hate Anchovies You Say- Balderdash!

You hate Anchovies?!? Are you freaking kidding me, I ask anyone making such a bold and usually uninformed pronouncement?  Anchovies are one of, maybe even the greatest flavor enhancing magic carpet ride that mere culinary mortals readily have at their disposal to add...
