“I’m not that strong a swimmer”

Saturday Night Live just celebrated its 40th anniversary, and everyone is weighing in on their favorite actors, characters and skits. Below is the skit that’s my all-time favorite. It’s certainly one of the most underrated, but the future movies of Christopher Guest and Harry Shearer have proven their genius.

The 40th anniversary celebration made me miss Phil Hartman even more. What a gifted character actor, not just on SNL but in “NewsRadio” and “The Simpsons” as well.
