My favorite episode was "Wallet Boy".

If you want to see some funny Chris Elliot stuff, go to YouTube and check out a lot of his old David Letterman appearances from the 80's and early 90's.

You can literally just sit and laugh your ass off at that guy's shenanigans for hours.

And "shenanigans" is just the kind of word he would use, too. 

Or maybe "monkey shines". 

Some corny, midwestern old-fart term like that.

Letterman described him as the funniest person he'd ever worked with.

Yeah, I've seen him on Letterman.

Did SCTV (Second City TV) ever air in the States? A Canadian production starring John Candy and Eugene Levy amongst others.

Yes, it did.

I'm not sure but I think it was on PBS.

All those people became big stars over here.

John Candy, Eugene Levy, Rick Moranis, Dave Thomas, Andrea Martin, etc, etc.

Harold Ramis of course was in Ghost Busters and I think he was in Stripes with Bill Murray.  

I'm not sure if Eugene Levy was in those movies, too.

Many stars were born from Second City! If we watched it today, I'm certain we would find it too stupid for words! But I loved it back then!

It was funny in it's own strange way.

Not like SNL back then, but decent, offbeat comedy.

I suppose it was better if one was stoned.

See,Canadians are a funny lot! We say "sorry" a lot even when not our fault, love SCTV and National Film Board cartoons! The Cat Came Back is my absolute favorite!

I always wondered why the called it Second City TV if it was produced in Canada.

Here in the US, Chicago is known as "The Second City" after NYC.  

I used to assume it came out of Chicago.

I liked the Schmenge Brothers.

I thought the same thing, so I looked it up.

Seems that SCTV is an offshoot of Chicago's Second City comedy troupe.
