It was ranked by People magazine as one of the ��ten best television shows of the year,� and TV Guide named the special one of the �50 Funniest Moments of TV.� He has also starred in feature films Breakfast of Champions, opposite Bruce Willis and Alan Rudolph; and Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle with Matthew Broderick and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
