Not David Copperfield ...

Postby brianarudolph » April 10th, 2019, 8:04 pm

... but Harry Shearer as David Copperfield.

Never seen this clip before, but I found it quite homage-ly hilarious and thought I'd pass it along for anyone who has never seen it before either:

Thanks for sharing that!

For me, the satire of Copperfield going on too long itself went on too long. Five minutes would have done the trick. When the Doug Henning character showed up, it lost my attention.

Still fun to watch...

I think this is called "recursively ironic humor" - a term I just totally made up.

But I hear you on all of your points, I.M.!

Nice, but a bit too long for me, too.

Here's another funny older Copperfield parody, and it's just two minutes long. Enjoy the debonair "Daniel Chesterfield"!
