Watch this.

TFA: "...her husband Wessel says his wife does "the classic blonde airhead very well because that is pretty much who she is. What you see is what you get. "

You don't know what censored is, junior. Censored is being dumped by Columbia because Mitch Miller doesn't like the way your career is going. It's having million-dollar pipes and nowhere to play 'em. Am I right, Steve and Eydie?

I'll tell you what you better understand! Next time you see Old Glory riding up that pole, you better sing that anthem, darling! You're lucky you're a chick, or you'd be nothing but a stain on the road and a crewcut. Our founding fathers went to the mat for you, baby!
 
2013-03-10 03:16:53 PM  
Easy, baby! And what's with the sneering crap? Don't do that to the people, they want to like you! That's what killed Dennis day - contempt for the audience. Luther Campbell! What about the chick's head?

Whoa dude, this isn't Dane Cook we're talking about...

If she was still funny or relevant, this may be a hurdle she could jump.  Now she comes off as whiny and stupid - without the looks she one had.
 
2013-03-10 03:35:23 PM  
She's the personification of all that went wrong with SNL years back - she's a 3 minute skit who's attempted to become a feature length film.

Nobody has mentioned Jon Voight yet? He can still find work in Hollywood because he is good at what he does. Being a man probably helps too, but only if you have the talent the studios are looking for.

Victoria Jackson's career is over, not because she is a Tea Partier, but because she offers nothing the studios want or need.

I hear the folks that produced Octomom's porn flick need a follow-up. Can she rub one out on camera? That's the only way she's getting any work in Hollywood again.

After reading the article, I think she was one of those people who got famous in a pre-reality show era for being herself -- and herself was interesting because other people who did have comedic talent and ability were able to dance around her and make the show work. She wasn't one of those comics who invented a certain persona and who got famous doing it (like a Bobcat Goldthwait or a Bob Saget) -- she was just herself, and because people like Johnny Carson and Lorne Michaels found her endearing and naturally funny, she was easy to work into the show.

And that's exactly why her star fell so fast - the people who supported her dropped out of the game or moved on and the new people coming up through the ranks were competing with her for a job. She was underqualified for the work she had and couldn't find a way to transition into something more significant. So, she got pushed aside, ignored and forgotten. (I remember one of the bits in an SNL anniversary special was her standing up in an audience and interrupting Jon Lovitz during a routine and asking whatever happened to her. That was the joke, and it was painful.)

As the article says, what made her interesting again was being this has-been comedienne who suddenly seemed to go full derp... though the article points out that she always leaned this way and didn't feel the need to speak up until her star had already fallen and she had nothing to lose. Had she been more savvy, she could have perhaps spun this into a comeback, but she's not that person. She really is the vile, hateful monster she appears to be.

In a post-reality era, we don't see actors and actresses rise up in the same way, because we have reality TV to do that for us. Lucky us?

Lets not kid ourselves here people- Her career was over when she got fat, regardless of her politics.  She was trading on her looks, and when they left, so did the offers.
 
2013-03-10 05:26:06 PM  
all of the sudden Al (Franken)   leans forward and says, 'Victoria, surely as a Christian you care about people's health care, surely you would believe in that.' And Victoria says, 'Well, if people died sooner, people will go to Heaven sooner.'

"And I start laughing because I thought she was being funny, and she says, 'No. They will meet Jesus sooner.'"


 *blink*

That's messed up.

Three words.  Voice-over work.  She's talented in the sense that she can do goofy voice things, and has at least some degree of comedic timing.  Part of me really hopes that this is a long Kaufmanesque con, because it's pretty unlikely she will get much else work.

I hadn't thought about that, but you're right, she would be perfect for animated movies or television. I think fellow nutter Roseanne has had some success there.

LeroyBourne: I can only remember her one bit on snl as the person on the 'love' toilet. I guess that says something.


I remember some story she was giving turned into he tap dancing on the desk.  Dennis Miller sat patiently for a bit, then gave her a dollar.  Seemed to me like that wasn't part of the rehearsal, but she went along  with it ... or she can act spontaneous.  Whichever.

RassilonsExWife: ZeroCorpse: Andy Kaufman is-- or at least was-- Leon Redbone

Umm.. No.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leon_Redbone


Conspiracy theory of the day:

Leon Redbone's first appearance on American television was in 1976 on SNL during a show which also featured Andy Kaufman. His history was almost a complete blank. It was like Leon Redbone just appeared out of the blue that week, with only a smaller club appearances prior to that. Andy Kaufman was known to do that very same thing-- Playing clubs under the guise of his alter-egos before introducing the character to a TV audience.

If you watch that episode, you'll see the close-ups on Redbone. He looks a heck of a lot like Andy Kaufman with a fake nose, mustache, dark glasses, and costume (panama hat, suit, etc).  If you check out his jawline and chin as compared to Kaufman on that episode, they look similar. The voice Redbone uses is unique because it's Kaufman puffing up his lips and singing through his nose.

I still suspect that Leon Redbone is a character that was first performed by Andy Kaufman. Maybe it still is Kaufman, and maybe, like Tony Clifton, it's someone else picking up the character and continuing with it. Either way, Redbone has always been very secretive, very private, and it has been damn near impossible to find out much about the man's history prior to that appearance on SNL.

Even the name-- Leon Redbone-- is very Kaufmanesque.

Perhaps he is still Kaufman, living a different life after "death" and enjoying the best joke of all.

Another hint: He travels to engagements exclusively by car, saying, "I carry around many unusual items and devices. They make life difficult for airport security personnel and flying impossible for me."  --- Maybe these unusual items and devices are the elements of his disguise, and going through airport security would "out" him as someone else.

The only sources for information about his life before he was famous are newspaper articles that contradict each other. Otherwise, he doesn't tell anybody anything.

I'm terrified of the prospect that Andy Kaufman sang the theme song to Mr Belvedere. Which is now stuck in my head.

The only thing I recall her doing on SNL was a Roseanne impersonation....which becomes a strange case of foreshadowing if one considers her career now.

Good for her...Obama needs to go the "old fashion way" along with everyone else in Washington (both Democrat and Republican alike IMO), homosexuals can 'eat a d!ck" and/or "lick a crack" (oh wait...) for all I care, and Muslims, well Muslims are fine with me as long as they are not trying to 'kill the infidels' (however, anyone who preaches that "God" wants us to take the lives of other people who are different than us need to "Die in a Fire" IMO....Muslim or otherwise).

 
On second thought...they should let the pillow biters get institutionalized (married) only so long as the 'butch' gets cleaned out by the 'the biatch' of the relationship when they split up. Why should homosexuals be protected from getting screwed over by the US Court system when they "get divorced" (split up with each other)???

 
They should have to pay just like all the normal/straight people IMO, and the days of da gays getting special treatment by NEVER having to pay for a bad breakup need to be over. Equal rights means getting farked EQUALY by the court system...fair is fair after all Am-I-Right???
