To make your weekend even better I thought I’d post a link to this vintage Saturday Night Live sketch from January 12, 1985. In it, Billy Crystal plays Joe Franklin hosting, appropriately, “The Joe Franklin Show.”

However, this sketch wouldn’t be on this website if it wasn’t for Martin Short’s brilliant impersonation of Doug. The history of his impersonation has been written about here before, so click on the link below to bask in one of Short’s most durable impersonations.
