How did "Tattoo" not make either of these lists? I would also accept the Tom Scharpling version of "evil Hervé Villechaize" from the April 17, 2012 show.

Edit: time of this appearance is 37:42.

I'm mostly making that edit so I can find it again when I search the forum.

I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

Considerable disagreement from me, but you have Tony Kornheiser and Pedro Martinez on your side. If that's what you're looking for.

As I mentioned to Mike on Twitter, I think that Lord Emsworth would be a better choice than Bertie Wooster.  Bertie is a fine character but something of a blank, who exists only enable the more comical characters around him.  Unless you count Bertie the narrator of the novels as opposed to the Bertie who stars in them.
