Tender Fella

I can understand why most people find Martin Short obnoxious but the man could be surprisngly funny at times. Take for example this parody of Tender Mercies that appeared on one of his television specials. Granted, it's something of an inferior sequel to his earlier SCTV sketch Scenes from an Idiot's Marriage but Short's impression of Jerry Lewis is always fun to watch mainly because it isn't just accurate it's kind of devastating.

Oh, and for those who hated the above sketch and felt it couldn't get any worse, here's proof that it could.


  1. I actually know the guy doing Martin Short as Jerry Lewis. He's on my Facebook page. Haven't really talked to him since he became a speechwriter for Adolph Ghouliani.

  2. Ha! Are you serious? That's incredible!
