I'm a little slow on the uptake when it comes to peering behind the curtain, but I think I finally noticed a bad Benjy line shoehorned into the show, spoken by Howard just at the end of the Mr. Skin interview on 2/22. It was stupid, but El Gunto laughed her loudest on cue. So Benjy really is just a dirt cheap unfunny post-intern Andy Kaufman wannabe, eh? I had foolishly assumed he must have some comedic writing talent, somewhere, for him to be kept around.
