SNL is spoofing Liza Minnelli
- Only for some reason, they made it qvc instead of hsn.
It was funny. The SNL comedien was made up to look like Liza. She was pretending to talk to a caller named Claudette, but kept calling her Emily. And, she was slurring her words.
I hate when they make fun of actual people. It’s an ill-natured, nasty thing to do. As much as I like Martin Short, I think his impression of Dr Brandt pushed the doctor over the edge. None of us knows the mindset of anyone else. Some people are much more sensitive and prone to hurt feelings than others. It’s been reported Dr Brandt was already suffering from depression. Maybe he thought people saw him as a clown, or he would lose his patients, or the impression diminished him in some way. Who knows? I think comediens need to choose their roles as ‘funny’ actors with much more sound judgement.
Google Dawn French and Saunders on youtube, They do a pretty funny skit on home shopping hosts.
