Rickles makes Jerry feel young. Sad for Jerry that Rickles is still funnier than Jerry ever will be.
Happy 4th hein is god
Do you think you are funny enough to start this thread?
Only Jerry could make Don unfunny.
they'd be funnier if they were in a car drinking beer
You're nuts; that was a great episode. I was all set for a depressing, unfunny visit to the funnyman's old folks home (a la the Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner episode), but Rickles knocked it out of the park, AND Jerry elevated his game, too...................unlike in the Letterman and Silverman episodes.
The only problem with the Rickles episode was the editing; it was way too choppy-choppy, herky-jerky. I hope it wasn't because Rickles was constantly losing his train of thought.
This episode should have been at least twice as long.
It's amazing how much more on his game Rickles is than Howard.
There's no bigger Rickles fan on the planet than me, but I based my opinion on the trailer; I never saw the episode.
The idea of a trailer is to entice people--based on the clip given, I was happy to give the episode a miss. I value your judgement, however, and will give the episode a shot.
I've only seen clips of the show but from what I have seen, I couldn't imagine Howard being that "loose" for television.
Thanks, cool. You should definitely check it out; some really funny Rickles zingers, a few old school show biz stories, and some solid, downright sage contributions from Jerry..................it's a fun time!
After the Brooks/Reiner episode, my expectations for the Rickles episode were set very, very low. I was all set to pounce on it with "Walking Dead" references, but Rickles still has it!
And now that I think about it, you're completely right: they don't know how to edit promo clips. They need to present full exchanges, but instead they'll just show a line, which loses a lot when not knowing the context of it.
They actually don't know how to edit the show, either. I just re-watched the classic Letterman episode (again), and they butchered the hell out of it. That episode should be an hour long, at least.
What's the rush?!?
The Michael Richards one is great, they even talk about the N word moment, Richards still seems bothered by his actions that night and rightfully so.
If "loose" means "interesting and funny", I completely agree.
The last time Howard was filmed in a car, it..............how you say...............not-a turn out so good!
And I will always love Jerry for allowing Richards an opportunity for redemption here. This speaks to a fundamental kindness and generosity that, it would appear, certain radio stars lack.
So true, Art.
I guess Richards is on Jerry's bro list.
There was also the Letterman appearance right after the incident.....................................
It makes Howard's complete shunning of Artie seem even more putrid by comparison........................and it seemed pretty damn putrid even before the comparison.
This was a turn-off. Rickles usually has a long set-up and a funny payoff. The 5-10 second clips made it like a Bruckenheimer film - unwatchable.
Howard said he hates riding in cars.
All that wind in my face, FEH.
He looks like alien Michael Jackson freakazoid queen.
in the movie UHF michael richards has a scene where he's yelling "he's a WINNER" that is eerily similar to the "he's a Reggie" scene.
jerry is a class guy apart from all that fucking a high schooler and fucking a married woman on her honeymoon thing.
