Tis the season
I don't know about you guys, but to me it just doesn't feel like Christmas until I see a sketch with Andy Griffith as a bartender consoling Paul Lynde, who is doing his "despondent Santa" shtick.
"He has been like an older brother or uncle to me. He got me into fly-fishing."
--Jimmy Kimmel, in Rolling Stone, on Huey Lewis
"I really remember hating all those Brat Pack movies. Give me a f------ break. I never met kids like that."
"With movies, a lot of recent comedies are all about this male bonding thing, featuring guys who don't want to grow up. It's all about seeing some version of you and your pals on-screen, hanging out. 'Hey, remember that time Keith puked all over the waitress at Dave & Buster's? It was just like that in the movie!' I can't get into that."
--Comedy writer/director Adam Resnick in Poking the Dead Frog by Mike Sacks
