There are quite a number of Phil Hartman fans on the board. Whether you love him from SNL, The Simpsons or Newsradio, Phil had a huge impact on comedy. Why don’t we share our favorite Phil moments?
- I loved his Frank Sinatra impression. The best skit was with Billy Idol, 2 Live Cru and Sinead O’Connor.
-Frankenstein, Tonto, and Tarzan was exceptional. The best one was when Phil lost it live on TV.
