Ever since 2001, Martin Short has been putting on a fat suit to play a character named Jiminy Glick, a celebrity reporter who doesn’t know anything about celebrities and who generally does off-putting shit at every opportunity. Short now has a new variety show on NBC with Maya Rudolph; on last week’s Maya & Marty, Rudolph sang with Miley Cyrus. And on last night’s show, Short put the fat suit back on to interview Drake, who gets credit for being willing to do this kind of thing. It goes about as well as you’d expect. Watch it below.
There are people who find the whole Jiminy Glick thing very funny! I do not understand these people! Shout out to Martin Short’s voice-acting job on The Cat In The Hat Knows A Lot About That, though.
