Oh, Jan Hooks, no!

Goddammit, I wasn’t ready to lose another comedy hero. Jan Hooks was only 57. Goodnight, sweet Manjula. Swing it out, Candy Sweeney. Meet you in the basement of the Alamo, Tina.

There’s no basement at the Alamo! Silly Pee-Wee.

Song parody of “I Am Woman” — ok, not that funny, but she’s selling it. The original is one I mocked (although more gently) with a balloon dance, so the song has a special place in my little black heart.

One response to “Oh, Jan Hooks, no!

  1. My favorite Jan Hooks moment is during the SNL 25th Anniversary special. She introduced Love is a Dream. When the camera cut back to her she was weeping uncontrollably. I can’t find video of that, but I’ll never forget it.
