“The Larry Sanders Show” was groundbreaking and unique and brilliant. And yet for some reason doesn’t get talked about as much as other shows like “Seinfeld,” “Curb” or even “Friends.” But this is a great example of what made it so good.
The premise here is that Larry’s sidekick Hank Kingsley had a sex tape stolen out of his office and now it’s all over the place and he’s in danger of losing all his sponsorships. Come for the set up, stay for the Henry Winkler punchline. Any time you get to hear Norm MacDonald make a “cock” reference is worth your time. These guys are national treasures.
