Here’s Rik on the Flenish tak show
De Laatste Show (The Last Show).
There’s some lovely anecdotes in this, and Rik is on top form, but the most wonderful parts are watching him laugh at his own shows, and acknowledge the genius of other people. And his Rickman impression. Delightful.
This is brilliant variation on the cup and balls trick, from an excellent performer.
The raw footage of a promo recording in Australia for
The Young Ones.
I love how easily Rik slips in and out of character, and how freely he improvises it.
Here are the commercials that aired on KGTV, the ABC affiliate in Chicago during a 1990 showing of
The Father Dowling Mysteries.
The most remarkable thing about them is that every single advert is just terrible. Not a decent one among them.
Also of note is the eclectic line up of shows on offer, from
Full House to Twin Peaks. Also, the new season of China Beach, a show I want to see a lot, the sort of precursor to ER.
Weird seeing an advert for
Goodfellas, and selling soap with a giveaway of The Sound Of Music is an odd choice.
Here’s the latest episode of
, the podcast where we work out the opposite of things that don’t have a natural opposite. I won’t list all the topics, that way you have to listen to find out. setisoppO
