See, even just reading that I hear it in his cadence and voice in my head and chuckle.

I've never heard a minute of his standup. I quit watching SNL loooong before he was on, and I never watch any of the other late night shows.

But he did have recurring small parts in other shows I watched, and he was always good.

We used to watch him in the 80's when he was playing local clubs and festivals. I thought it was nice that he got work on SNL, but didn't really think it was a great fit for his style

"........ allegedly."  I liked how he would deliver similar news stories and after a long pause, sarcastically tack that on at the end, thus [ALLEGEDLY] avoiding a slander lawsuit for telling the truth.

Even if he hadn't, it wouldn't matter. Allegedly doesn't protect you from slander/libel lawsuits. 

No trying to pick on you, but I took multiple classes on this with my PR degree. People who haven't studied the law often have completely incorrect views of it. I'm sure many of the lawyers that frequent here would agree, but can't publicly because of the implications on their ability to practice law.

Any time he showed up on The Middle, you were always in for a treat. He played Neil Flynn's (the janitor from Scrubs) ne'er do well brother who was always down on his luck and had some wacky get-rich-quick scheme that he would try to rope Neil Flynn's character into
