Post 1028 - Jay Johnson

It was a long day for me on Saturday. I should have turned in earlier than I did; but I decided to check out Mark Evanier's newsfromme blog to catch up on his recent posts.

Mark wrote about his love of ventriloquism. I have long admired this talent as well. Mark argues that the best one he's ever seen is Jay Johnson, and I see no reason to disagree with him.

Johnson has a one person play on Broadway. I'll never see it, but he plugs it on David Letterman. Here is that appearance.

You may remember Johnson from the few years he was on the sitcom "Soap". I loved that show back in the day. Some clips I watched this afternoon still hold up very nicely. One of my favourite scenes is when Billy Crystal stuffs "Bob" in the fridge and... why tell you about it, when you can just see it?

Wish I had some talent at something. Sheesh!!
