Comic Flashes

My Fellow Comedists,

This weekend is Joe Piscopo's 60th birthday. Joe Piscopo was a member of the Saturday Night Live cast in the early 80s and his comedy enjoyed a run of popularity that precipitously ended. This is not something that is unusual in the world of comedy. So this weekend, let's ask who are comics who disappeared too quickly, who had a short, but great run.

My suggestion would be Kevin Meany. I always loved his stuff. Here's his classic bit "big pants people."

Others whose time in the comic spotlight was too short?

Live, love, and laugh,

Irreverend Steve
