I thought this wasn’t really Pit-worthy, so I decided to put it here.
I saw part of the “Salute to Andy Kaufman” on Comedy Central earlier this evening, and guess who one of the hosts was. (Well, you don’t have to guess if you read the subject.) Bob Sagat! That’s right, Bob Sagat! WTF? When doing a tribute to one of the most cutting edge comedians of the past 30 years, why pick the epitome of bland humor? Taxi versus Full House; Andy on SNL versus Bob on America’s Funniest Home Videos – not much of a comparison. Bob Sagat even had the nerve to say Andy had a profound influence on him.
