Actor and Comedian Martin Short

His TV series, Primetime Glick, spoofed celebrity talk shows. Short played Jiminy Glick, the obese, self-absorbed, misinformed host of the fictitious talk show. Glick is now the star of a new film, Jiminy Glick in Lalawood. Martin Short was a cast member on both Saturday Night Live and SCTV. His movies include Father of the Bride, The Three Amigos, and Innerspace. This interview was originally broadcast on Feb. 21, 2002.
