People can make any remark really about what they think they know or don't or whatever the bottom line is Martin Short isn't Incredibles f****** Talent
MARTIN SHORT IS AMAZING.....I THINK PEOPLE HAVE FORGOTTEN THE AMAZING TALENT HE IS
I feel just like Bette. What is everyone laughing at? This guys is not funny. And where did he do the impression of her? I must have missed it.
Was Betty Davis anorexic?
Today's talk show hosts like Fallon, and the NBC host after him (that shows how bland he is, I don't even remember his name and he has been on the air for a few years), don't compare to how good shows (talk shows, variety shows, sit-coms and dramas) used to be. How is it that instead of tv becoming better due to cable and the internet competition, it got worse and didn't evolve.
This is the moment when Bette realized that the days of being overly serious and acting superior were over and that charisma, humor and confidence over took her presence in a show.
I'm not feeling Martin Short's body language 7:40-7:52. I suppose he's worried about his performance as a Johnny Carson's guest, but he moves his arms so broadly that she has to back down so he won't touch her. He has no conscience of the space he takes? Also, he wasn't respectful when he talked to her, and I don't like how he turned his back on her. She's not only an elder, but she's a legend. And I do no see him acknowledging that at all. The more I mature, the more I see how problematic his behaviour is toward women.
Betty Davis just made a short man feel very tiny with one witty remark.
Those really were the days of late night entertainment. Pure joy, laughter, no angry political pseudo-comedians. Yeah, like a different world. 😔
Just not funny
I don't like anyone offending Betty Davis I don't care how funny you are LOL
Makes the late night talk of shows of today look REALLY lame...
Martin did a joke about a walrus riding a bike carrying a surfboard. It was so funny and he called the walrus Wally the Surfing Walrus. It was so funny!
I remember when this aired in 1988. I was 26-years-old and Bette Davis died one year later. Bette Davis was as blunt and frank as Lucille Ball. If she liked you, great! But, if she didn't... to hell with you!
I was 26 that August, loved the Tonight show and Letterman right after
aw, someone give the lady a footstool
For sure, she is NOT a fan! It's amazing she even talks to him. But I don't think it's Martin himself, rather, his "art" is not what hers was -acting- nor could it ever be, even though it IS "acting" in a way to impersonate. Even the generation gap is not the difference here; quite simply, she was an accomplished actress, and he's a comedian-impersonator: like softball versus baseball.
I don’t think he’s funny at all.
I'm glad the lead in was misleading, she didn't respond negatively to him or even recognize that he was impersonating her lol...but I'd hate to think of anyone not being a fan of Martin Short😋 He's always been a favorite of mine.
I didnt think this dood was funny at all.....just loud.
This was so awesome.
Awkward to have an elderly woman ignored.. while a young egocentric male does his thing.
Stepmother good movie
Johnny cracking up is the best
The body language of Martin Short and Betty Davis . . they are each in their own realm - but tolerating each other. Miss the days of multiple guests on talk shows, interacting in the most unusual ways... Now it's just one by one, and the host controls all. Similar to what has happened in society.
Yeah, but I think Betty Davis was legendary enough to not have to share a space with a hyperactive Martin Short.
Short ain't funny but is quirky.
@Bradley Miller extremely hilarious!
Waaaaaay back when SNL was funny.
That boom mic
The fact that he barely acknowledged MS. Davis in the beginning, Taps her shoulder as a afterthought several minutes of being on the show, tells me he has no respect for her as a legend or as a person. Rather he is nervous, talented in his own right, he is missing being a gentleman first.
His Katherine Hepburn was "Marvelous"!
That was a *VERY QUICK* ten minutes and five seconds, Martin Short is a master impersonator. I enjoyed *every second* of this video clip. 😎👍
If we quit medicating boys for ADHD, maybe we'd have more of this.
Beautiful thought! It’s really society and schools that need to be more accepting of kids out of the box. Kids with ADHD don’t succeed without conformity to rigidity.
Quit? I think Short got into the boys ADHD medication!
Watching this clip I can see jimmy Fallon trying so hard to be Johnny with all the laughing
Funniest man on the planet.
3 of my all time favs
Imitation is the best form of flattery!
I love Bette Davis but the cigarette smoking was rude and inconsiderate of everyone else being interviewed. She was an absolute chain smoker.
That was unfortunately just accepted
I was hoping he'd give Bette some Joan Crawford.
I read his book about show business: SHORT ON TALENT.
Betty's throwing shade 😆
Such a funny man. Thought Johnny was going to fall off his chair!
I always admired Martin Short bc he never used curse words! Heaven is lucky to have him! RIP Martin!
He’s still working. I think he’s been touring with Steve Martin (also still alive).
....uuuummmmm.......he’s still alive🤦🏻♂️
I can't remember Martin ever disappointing me in his movies/TV. I am SO in a hurry to see him in "Only Murders In The Building" on Hulu!
Really enjoyed this 👌 ☺
It official Martian short created Jim carey lol 😆
Katherine Hepburn is imperonation is brilliant and the Bette Davis.
he certainly was not a humble person I am sure he would act the same way no matter if queen of england or if President Kennedy was there.
Remember the Non-Smoking section of the Air-Planes? Go figure!
Betty doesn't seem too impressed
So funny, so talented. Love his impersonations.
To the NUTS!! THE BRIDGE MIX THE BRIDGE MIX!! FOOL!
Martin Short is annoying--- Johnny was kind to laugh at a lot of that. Short is also a jerk in person...
Bette Davis was "Knock-Out" beautiful in Cabin in the Cotton 1932.
Johnny developed emphysema from his heavy smoking for decades. You can hear his smokers cough a few times during this video. What a wonderful talent he was. Miss late night shows like these.
Chevy, Martin, Short. The best team SNL ever had in my book!
S. Martin was never a cast member C.Chase & M. Short were only there for 1 season.
Martin Short is one of the great comedic talents. I love his “Ed Grimley” character. I so miss Johnny Carson. No one on the late night circuit right now can hold a candle to him!
Look at what talent he had to work with though!
@Ferretocious...my grandmother (rest her soul) thought Johnny Carson was the “straightest and most handsome man she had ever seen”...THAT was when late night TV was entertaining...I miss those days/nights before they were replaced with the pure political shitholes on the TV now 😕🙁☹️😞😔...don’t get me started on the digression of SNL 😡🤬😡🤬
I'm going absolutely mental I must say!!!
Johnny Carson , one of a kind. Miss great late night hosts . David Letterman another good one 😂😂
There are no words for the brilliance that is Martin Short. He is a comic genius and the very best of his generation.
It's so funny he does betty davis when he starts and then when he tells her she's hard to do but oh my she can't see he's doing her in imitation. 😆
Isn’t that amazing that you could Smoke on these shows!!
He’s annoying to listen to. This isn’t even funny in the least.
Bette was about 40 here. At her prime. Have another smoke
She was in her 80's. She died a year after this show.
40?!!! My goodness she looks much older.
This is a bygone era. The torch was still being passed
Bette doesn't seem flattered as she should be, that's for sure.
I'm only 53 But those times where beautiful ❤️
This interview was way too long. This guy is annoying. Does not have the class to be in the presence of Bette Davis.
This was one of the worst ever. But funny to watch how it was not funny 😁
He is the best. No one like him
