Here’s one of Albert Brooks’s best appearances on Johnny Carson. This is from 1983-ish (he apparently was about to shoot the thoroughly unnecessary remake of ‘Unfaithfully Yours’ with Dudley Moore which was released in 1984) and features one of his most Brooksian inventions–the ‘home impressions kit’. Carson laughs so much that he does one of his rare ‘stand up from the table and spin around’ bits. Watching these 11 minutes is much more worthwhile than watching Rob Reiner’s feature length doc about Brooks which, for some reason, doesn’t capture (for me anyway) Brooks peculiar magic. Anyway, here’s to Burt Lancaster, Clark Gable and Curly Howard, all of whom are reimagined by Brooks in this marvelous routine.
