26. The Guy Who Plays Mr. Belvedere Fan Club
Original Airdate: May 9th, 1992
Tom Hanks sells this twisted sketch about obsessive Christopher Hewitt fans so well that it's difficult to imagine if this would have made it to air at all, if he hadn't come in as a last minute replacement for original host Joe Pesci. "When you're there for a while, you begin to recognize the patina of a sketch that has yet to be on air because no one has fully committed to it," Hanks said in the Live From New York book. The Guy Who Plays Mr. Belvedere Fan Club" could be of historical importance as well, as the dawn of '80s kitsch – the decade, and Mr. Belvedere itself, had ended less than three years before, but already the mere name of the show felt like a curio of a bygone era.
