Here is a great video of news woman Dawn Scott trying to report on a very serious crime, when some naked dude - wearing a ski mask appears out of nowhere and....well..see for yourself (even though I revealed the secret in the title):

Here's a great clip of Don Rickles on a Dean Martin celebrity roast. Celebs include Ronald Reagan, Bob Hope, Sugar Ray and Milton Berle. If you can watch this without laughing, you're dead. Keep an eye out for our friend Nipsey Russell

Here's a little gem from the past - The 1975 First Season Intro of the Krofft Super Show. I believe that this is from the Friday Night preview show that they'd play the night before the new Saturday shows started. Sid and Marty sure could create a lot of junk.
Bobby Bittman... SCTV. The best sketch comedy show ever? Eugene Levy was so great as Bittman, he and Sammy Maudlin (Joe Flaherty) could have had their own show just with these characters. For how much I loved the old SNL, SCTV was much better. Enjoy this classic clip:

I've seen some crappy mascot costumes but I am calling for the firing of the person in the Planters licensing department that approved this Mr Peanut Costume. This was the horrific scene last week at the Springfield Saint Patties Day parade. I mean, where should I start? Just look at the inferior fabric, the thin font on the hat and the yellow? It's at least three pantone shades light of the correct Mr. Peanut yellow.
And it wasn't just me. As the "Mr. Peanut" rounded the corner onto Springfield Road it was as if people had seen Godzilla. It was pure panic. People freaked and scattered in all directions to seek shelter from this beast. Although there were no deaths in the melee at least one parade goer chipped a tooth. Luckily she wasn't Irish. She was only Hungarian or something.
I hereby am demanding a written apology from Planters (a division of Kraft) and some peanuts. From Springfield I'm demanding a verbal apology, a full page written apology in the Daily Times and a key to the city. Not a big fake key, but a real key that opens up real doors in Springfield.

Hi. My name is the Frank Rizzo bronze. I'm ignoring the stupid Comcast building that may or may not be on my right side. That's correct - I don't see that Philly center city building ruining my skyline. Why? Because if I did, I would have to animate myself, pull myself off of this pedestal and go dig the real me up. I would then have to track down Brian Roberts, pull him out of a board meeting and carry him like the mighty Kong to the top of this piece of junk. Bottom line this building sucks.
Side note: Look at that beautiful THAT BLUE YAK photography!

Have you been Jonesin' for some Philly style Al Alberts Showcase? Well calm down Holmes. I'm not gonna set you up with the crappy frilly dress wearing kids B.S. No. Here you will find my man Al Alberts singing with some circa 1980 Double Mint Gum style twins. I think he was a shoe in with them until he mentioned Stella. I guess that's just his nature.
I must say, despite the crappy audio and lighting my man had to endure - it's not THAT bad. Pure Philly classic. Al Alberts is the man.
WARNING: Unless you want to get your ass kicked, NEVER mention the name Al Alberts in hearing distance of Captain Noah. Trust me. You will be crushed.

Everywhere he goes, people taunt him about how it's the worst piece of crap show ever. Stephen Merchant, who has been writing with him for years also plays a character on the show. In a great scene I was watching the other night, Stephen is asking a dwarf, who is on a side project with Ricky all of these ridiculous questions like:
"Would I fit in your house?"
"If you were in your bedroom and I leaned over like King King and reached in and grabbed you, would you be scared?"
In another great episode, Ricky complains about a loud child, not realizing that the kid is 100% pure retarded. Mongoloid if you will. And I will. And the actor playing him? ..Puts Corky to shame.
Here's his ridiculous catch phrase:
