Yes, I love Jon, like a brother. His genius revels itself to you in stages. I remember the first night, he guested on weekend update as Tommy Flanagan, the pathological liar. At dress rehearsal, I introduced him as Tommy Flanagan, and I used a short a in the second syllable of Flanagan when i did it. He grabbed me in between dress and air and said his name is Tommy Flanagan, long a in the second syllable. Don't you see Dennis, he is such a liar he can't even pronounce Flanagan the right way. That's when I first began to think he is brilliant.

I do think we need a 3rd party and if they form one, I would name it the Republicans.

For the first 3 shows at Saturday Night Live, I had no say. I wrote some jokes, but since I was a newbie, Senator Al Franken, who was my boss, picked the jokes. But then, around 3 shows in, they had a whole bunch of leaks in the dyke and they left me alone out of necessity. I would say for the rest of my career there. One other many, the great Herb Sargent wrote almost all of update, except of course the guest characters. All the guests wrote their own pieces. BTW, I never thought I would hear myself say Senator Al Franken out loud.

Well to be honest, stand up comedy is pretty cut and dry. If you are funny enough, you can be a prick and if you are not funny enough, no degree of sainthood is going to save you.

No and thus for better or worse, my career.

When my friend Tom Hanks, Dana Carvey and I sang Jingle Bells in Dennis Miller triplicate. To see those two in the bad mullet wigs made me laugh hard.

When Spade gets less funny than me and Lovitz gets more funny than me.

Not to mention a pool room scene I did in my magnum opus "Bordello of Blood". By the way, every time I use that song, it costs $3000. I think I fed Tears for Fears for around a decade.

I am reading Moby Dick and it is cool. What am I doing now a days, I am an apprentice harpooner.
