Kevin Pollak in an old standup routine

I used to have this HBO special on tape many years ago, loaned it to a friend and never got it back. It is brilliant, Pollak does impressions of "real actors" doing the roles of the usual suspects in Star Trek.

One note of explanation needed for the end since it's out of context, "Brian" is Brian Boitano who had won the gold at the Olympics that year, and Pollak was making fun of skating...

  2. When they cut to a girl in the audience at around the 3:30 mark, I thought it was Chloƫ Sevigny in American Psycho. And then I remembered this was real, and that was a movie, and Pollack wa doing imitations and man... that was trippy.

  3. Thou shalt NOT make fun of Star Trek, the single greatest TV show ever invented (other than Gilligan's Island). Unless, of course, you do it well, like this guy did.

  4. His impressions are amazing. Has he done stuff on "The Simpsons?"
