With Roger Ebert’s poignant remembrance of Gene Siskel today, our thoughts turn to one of the best “outtakes” videos on YouTube. Watch the following and tell me there’s a comedy team that could do this better. The timing, the ruthlessness, the camaradarie — and neither of them walks off the set in a huff. It’s simply par for the course.
I love how they go right back into the promo without a hitch at the end. You can’t teach that stuff.
“I knew Gene couldn’t sustain that string for long without a grammatical error.”
