NFT: RIP Joe Flaherty

He was 82. Didn't realize he was that old. I'm a huge SCTV fan and he was the funniest guy in a cast of very funny people. I also always enjoyed his sleazy prosecutor in Used Cars, a very underrated movie.

So many great characters. Sammy Maudlin, Guy Caballero, etc. etc. Sorry he’s gone.

was about our former OL (?)

Haven't caught SCTV mush but on your reco about a year ago we did watch 'Used Cars', raunchy funny. He was good. RIP
Loved him in Happy Gilmore. Had hoped he could make a return

"It's one of the scariest songs I've ever heard. Even the title scares me! It's called...The Weapon! But make sure you put on your 3D glasses, otherwise you'll only be seeing this in one-half D!"

Nothing better than the Sammy Maudlin show

with sidekick William B Williams. Right up there with Johnny and Ed. And Johnny couldn't nab guests like Bobby Bittman and Lola Heatherton.

And the dad in Freaks and Geeks

Sad that he passed away. Funny dude and a great character actor.
Damn! I've been so busy ...

I guess the non-monopoly Google blocks us from sharing content?
OK, I know, he hailed from Pittsburgh, but Joe as Norman Gorman conducting "Sunrise Semester"lessons is damn funny!
There were a number of SCTV hosts who conducted those segments. I found two with Joe on YouTube.
One is "SCTV - Conversational New Yorkese with Norman Gorman" and the other is "SCTV - Societal Behaviour with Norman Gorman" (The second one is not an official SCTV post; the first one is.)
And yeah, they spelled "Behaviour" the Canadian way.
OMG - so funny.

That show was so underrated and full of comedic legends.

Recently I watched re-runs on Youtube. Holds up.

RIP Mr. Flaherty.
