Eric Idle


My thoughts:
#16 on my list.  Grew up watching Python and Eric was always one of my favorites.

The Wiki:
Eric Idle (born 29 March 1943) is an English comedian, actor, author, singer, writer, and comedic composer. He was a member of the British surreal comedy group Monty Python, a member of the The Rutles on Saturday Night Live, and the author of the Broadway musical Spamalot.

Not much to say except that he's pretty amazing.

Christopher Guest


My thoughts:
Not on my list, but such a talent.  Waiting For Guffman is a hilarious film, one of the funniest ever and one that holds up over the years and after many repeat viewings.

The Wiki:
Christopher Haden-Guest, 5th Baron Haden-Guest (born February 5, 1948), better known as Christopher Guest, is a British and American screenwriter, composer, musician, director, actor, and comedian. He is most widely known in Hollywood for having written, directed and starred in several improvisational "mockumentary" films that feature a repertory-like ensemble cast. In Britain, he holds a peerage, and has publicly expressed a desire to see the House of Lords reformed as a democratically-elected chamber. Despite initial activity in the Lords, his career there was cut short by the House of Lords Act 1999. When using his title, he is normally styled as Lord Haden-Guest.

The clip:

I love that scene.  One of my favorites in that film.

On my list, though admittedly low.  Great work on Spinal Tap, Mighty Wind and as the sweet old owner of a coonhound in Best in Show.  His segment on the last academy awards was also one of the only funny moments on it.  (of course, that's more directing, but he was funny in it).

Albert Brooks


My thoughts:
Lost in America and Defending Your Life are both brilliant films.  Wish I had remembered to put him on my list.

The Wiki:
Albert Lawrence Brooks (born Albert Lawrence Einstein; July 22, 1947) is an American actor, voice actor, writer, comedian and director. He received an Academy Award nomination in 1987 for his role in Broadcast News. His voice acting credits include Marlin the clownfish in Finding Nemo, recurring guest voices for the animated television series The Simpsons, including Russ Cargill in The Simpsons Movie.

APGIL kept telling me to put Albert Brooks on my list but I didn't because I don't think I've seen anything with him in it (at least nothing memorable).

For some reason I derped on Eric Idle, but again, I had to make some cuts to the Python crew. Only one made it, even though I love each of them.

Pretty sure I had Christopher Guest on my list. I can't think of why I wouldn't.

Fred Willard


My thoughts:
Another guy I forgot to have on my list.  Have watched him from back in his Fernwood days.  And he was robbed of an Oscar nomination for Best In Show.

The Wiki:
Fred Willard (born September 18, 1939) is an American actor, comedian, and voice over actor, best known for his improvisational comedy skills. He is known for his roles in the Christopher Guest mockumentary films This is Spinal Tap, Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show, A Mighty Wind, and For Your Consideration as well as television series D.C. Follies. He is an alumnus of The Second City comedy troupe. He received three Emmy nominations for his recurring role on the TV series Everybody Loves Raymond as Robert Barone's father-in-law, Hank MacDougall. In 2010, he received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his role on the ABC TV series Modern Family as Phil Dunphy's father, Frank Dunphy.

Gah!  Oversight!  I admit I've still only seen a bit of his stuff and I usually think of him more of a writer/director but he's a hell of a comedic actor.  Especially on the Simpsons (also, he's apparently one of the few guest stars who gets to improvise lines)

Awesome Albert Brooks' Simpsons bloopers from the otherwise not-too-good season one.

(I wish Fox would allow for more substantial clips.)

That is it for tonight.  Top 25 starts tomorrow and I will try to have this thing wrapped up this weekend!

New poll for next list of crap goes up shortly.

FRED!  That man is incredible.  I don't blame them for making him the only live-action element of Wall * E considering how animated he is (and rimshot).

He's great in a Mighty Wind, but in Best in Show... well, I think that was the perfect combination of character and performance (and with the perfect foil too).

I adore Fred Willard. When I was around 15 or 16 I used to watch Fernwood 2Nite/America 2Nite and I had such a massive crush on him. I wanted to be Mrs. Jerry Hubbard.

Since then I've seen him in a multitude of things and I still love him. I don't know how many of you watched the Westminster Kennel Club dog shows when Joe Garagiola hosted with David Frye, but Fred was doing a dead-on impression of Joe in his role in Best In Show. Joe used to ask the most ridiculous, out-of-place questions and make the most obvious observations, and you could just hear David Frye doing his best to be patient with Joe. I don't know for sure if Fred based his performance on Joe, but it made it all the more hilarious to me because I thought he was.

I hate it when people point a camera at their TV, hit record, then upload the video to YouTube.  Do they not realize how terrible that sounds and looks, or do they just not care?

If I'd had any Americans on my list Willard would have been very near the top, he's utterly fantastic. :)

I could be wrong, but I think it's to get around being taken down for copyright infringement.  But yes, it's pretty abysmal.

The racecar movie was one of the stupidest movies I've ever seen. 

Cars 2?
