37. Film Beat: Jeff Daniels
Original Airdate: January 14th, 1995
You know that thing where Paul Rudd always shows the same clip on Conan? Here's its ridiculous successor. After Letterman, Get a Life, and Cabin Boy, cult bizarro-comedy star Chris Elliott found himself adrift on one the most maligned SNL seasons in history. With Jeff Daniels as a hapless victim, he keeps replaying the diarrhea scene from Dumb & Dumber – Elliott carrying the type of puerile, childish sketch that 30 Rock spoofs with "Fart Machine," but with the straight, unsettling, manchild delivery that is his trademark. Life imitated art in 2010 when CNN aired the same scene.
