Just because every Monday needs a laugh.

I love Andrea. What a gifted comedienne.

Martin was born in Maine, was she raised in Canada?

I am so glad she won the Tony this year. She was so great on SCTV. And this impression is spot-on.

No, she grew up in Portland, Maine. She was voted Miss Deering High School of 1966 and she dated my grandmother's cousin, Dickie.

She blowed up real good!

Andrea is brilliant.

She starts off well as Peters but loses it. Christine Pedi and Jennifer Simard are much better.

Her Barbra Streisand was also funny. "You stink! You're fired!"

Brenda V.

Did Vaccaro really breathe that heavily?

Judge for yourself, R13

R14, I had to pause that as I was laughing so hard.

Martin and Catherine O'Hara do Ingmar Bergman.

Andrea Martin IS Linda Lavin!

Nothing on TV ever came close to being as funny as SCTV, Andrea Martin, Catherine O'Hara, Joe Flaherty, Eugene Levy and John Candy. Easily my favorite show of the 80's. My favorite skit was their take-off on Ordinary People.

But yes, Martin is very talented.

r22 = Patty Lapone.

R5's post made me look up the high school. Another alumnus? Linda Lavin. So R18 is even funnier.

Andrea Martin as Brenda Vaccaro is hysterical.

(Breathes in)

But Brenda Vaccaro as Brenda Vaccaro is pee-in-your-pants funny.

Andrea Martin as Edith Prickly as "The Miracle Worker."

Why'd she get a nosejob? She looks like a totally different person now.

Leaning English the Pirini Sclerosa way:

I love that the Connie Franklin clip is on Connie Francis's Vimeo channel.

by Anonymousreply 2910/22/2013

Bump, because I want to watch the Andrea as Brenda clip.

by Anonymousreply 3011/10/2013

Pirini Sclerosa is my favorite AM character.

by Anonymousreply 3111/10/2013

Mine too, R31. This is my favourite clip. The reactions of Moranis and Flaherty!

What is Bernadette Peters' appeal to gay man? Girl-women don't tend to have big gay followings, do they?

by Anonymousreply 3311/10/2013

She has a very thick Maine accent. She obviously grew up there.

by Anonymousreply 3411/10/2013

Hadn't she been ill prior to Pippin?

Eugene Levy was kinda hot.

[quote] Eugene Levy was kinda hot.

when he got stuck in a car with all the windows rolled up and no A/C, on a summer's day in the South.
