Running the show with Hugh Fink.
Guys, thank you for sharing the development of the show with us. Was pretty cool that we get to go inside with you without getting all tech on us, but showing us the relationships that are developing. First time knowing who Hugh was, and he was a joy.
loved this episode. what a great new guest! best of luck with the show!
Here’s the link to the man being rejuvenated by music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NKDXuCE7LeQ
The reason that it reminded Hugh of Awakenings is because Oliver Sacks, the doctor upon whome Awakenings is based, comments throughout the video.
this video motivated me to bring the work I was doing with music and dance therapy with independent seniors into the nursing homes.
I concur with the statement above about Hugh. I saw this in my feed and was like “Hugh Fink?”. A quick wikipedia yielded the occasional hit but other then that, no idea who he was.
Loved it. Great guest. I can see why he is the producer (EP?) of the new show. He and Jimmy play off each other so fantastically.
Hope he is back soon.
I was glad to be part of this…
I also had a “Hugh who?” moment when I saw the listing but found him to be a charming raconteur. His classy sportcoat matched the class of the man himself. It was funny to hear them mention “The Day the Clown Cried” and Harry Shearer. While watching the video feed I kept thinking that Hugh looks a lot like Harry Shearer.
It sounds like the new show is in good hands. I can’t wait to see the final result of the pilot and hopefully the good long run of shows to follow it.
Matt, Chutes and Ladders always had its root in morality lessons. It’s derived from Snakes and Ladders, which was known as Moksha Patam in ancient India. It was a game designed to emphasize the role of karma in everyday life. Also, http://myprettypennies.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/chutesladders.gif shows the board game design I grew up with. As you can see, it clearly demonstrates rewards for good behavior and the consequences of bad behavior.
Hugh’s story about his bit with Todd Glass (don’t want to spoil it) may be one of the funniest NNF stories ever! What a great episode!
Also gotta second the observation that Hugh Fink looks like Harry Shearer. They could easily be brothers.
“When it comes to window blinds, vertical blinds are terrific, but so are horizontal blinds.” – Larry King
My all time favorite Larry King quote.
Also, it seems like Mr. Fink would be a good fit over on the Kevin Pollak Chat Show, where they send up Larry King on a regular basis.
Like others I had a Who? moment as well but as soon a Mr. Fink opened his mouth I knew I’d enjoy him as a guest. Good to know Pardo got a good relationship with the people working on the show. Albeit I hardly think Jimmy Pardo need jokes !
My only exposure to Hugh prior to this was his Comedy Central special, which while I remember being funny kind of faded into my memory. He is really engaging, funny, great episode, loved Mr. Fink’s industry stories. Great guest, great guy.
The curse lives on. Beastie Boys reference and Adam Yauch just died.
let me listen you assholes!
This was easily one of my favourite episodes. The dynamic with Jimmy, Hugh and Matt was brilliant. I’m unfamiliar with SNL, but this makes me want to watch the seasons he wrote for. ♥
