The Real Jiminy Glick

This morning, while watching a Jiminy Glick special Martin Short did for Netflix last year, I was reminded of the person Short allegedly based the character upon.

Skip E. Lowe has hosted a cable-access TV show from Los Angeles for 35 years. His show is devoted to the subject of Hollywood, and he definitely seems to prefer interviewing the old-time stars (Milton Berle, Red Buttons, Shelly Winters, etc..).

Here's a clip from a show that aired just before the November election. Skip seems to have a problem with John McCain here. I've chosen the clip because it's bizarrely entertaining, but also Skip is at his most Jiminy-esque. Enjoy!
