Yes, that’s right. Buddy Hackett. Didn’t know he did standup, didja? One of the original filthy comedians, this guy’s act could shock a marine. You mean the guy who played the bird in Disney’s THE LITTLE MERMAID? Yes, I do. Listen to this, and then come back to the comment section and tell me if the elephant trunk joke did not leave you on the ground, howling for breath.
Let me give you the flavor of the Hack. Jay Mohr, who starred with Hackett in ACTION back in 1999, tells the following story…
“I was sick off my ass with the flu, and the phone rings. It’s Hackett. I pick up the phone:
Hiya pal! You don’t sound too good. I called to see how you are…?
I’m not well. I got the flu, I’m pissed off, I got no sleep, I have wake up to do radio spots for a show that’s already sold out, my back hurts..
Well, slow down. Whenever I don’t feel so good, I always try to remind myself of the Siamese twin whose brother is gay, whose boyfriend is coming over, and they share the same a--hole.”
You are going to be memorizing jokes from this one, trust me.
