Martin Short Resurrects Beloved Jiminy Glick Character to Harass Jimmy Fallon
Former ‘SNL’ star and enduring comedy legend Martin Short has many stellar characters under his belt, but his Jiminy Glick--who perhaps broke said belt many years ago--is one of his best. The dim bulb Hollywood entertainment reporter spectacularly biffs each and every one of his interviews, while still somehow managing to seem as if he is the one in the right. It’s a true talent (which, considering how bad Jiminy is at his actual job, is something the fake character should cling to).
On last night’s ‘Tonight Show,’ Jiminy sat down with host Jimmy Fallon (who he intermittently mistook for Ryan Seacrest, Jimmy Kimmel, and others) to talk about, well, total nonsense. It was sort of awesome.
