    Always liked Fred Willard, but his recent appearances on Carolla, and Modern Family put me into “Huge Fan” territory. Heard he also did a RiffTracks. Anyone take that in yet?

    Make sure you ask him: “Wha’ Happened?!?”

  3. stubby says:

    Fred Willard is delightful. I consider it a national tragedy that he and Betty White never made babies.

    Oh man.

    Oh man.

    It’s times like this that geography hurts like a mofo.

    The interview of Marilyn Hack by the trash cans in For Your Consideration! It doesn’t really get any better than those two in that scene. Fred: “Marilyn Hack and trash. What a juxtaposition….” And “Now I know what it feels like to look into the Grand Canyon…”

    Nobody does killer-smart cluelessness like Fred Willard.

    Put him in a comedy at your own peril.

    Because he’s gonna rezone the game, and the audience is gonna watch him racking it up.

    Definitely a podcast I look forward to.

    I adore Fred Willard.. Fred and Jane Lynch can do no wrong in my book.
