Martin Blank is a professional assassin. He is sent on a mission to a small Detroit suburb, Grosse Pointe, and, by coincidence, his ten-year high school reunion party is taking place there at the same time.
Jiminy Glick, a character first introduced on the The Martin Short Show now has his own show. His gross incompetence and clueless confidence shine in conversations with various celebrities. There's also an opening monologue with Glick that usually involves his bandleader Adrien VanVoorhees (Michael McKean), plus commercial and movie parodies featuring other characters.Written by

Aren't you kind.

Non-stop laughs from the funniest man on television...
For those of you who have not witnessed the pure genius of Martin Short on Primetime Glick, I strongly suggest you tune-in or set up your VCR or your Tevo...or what have you...do whatever it takes to make sure you don't miss any more of this true comic gem. Let me fill you in on what you will see, you will see Jimminy Glick(Short) leaving some of the true comic geniuses speechless. I have not witnessed a single guest who has managed to make an even halfway admirable attempt at a comeback or an insult in Glick's direction. He's brash, he's condescending and he's just clumsy, the combination of the three make it near impossible to get any thing across without him making you look like a complete fool. He will misspronounce the guests names, bring up embarrassing things from their pasts that a normal host would never bring up, and he'll see it in the guests eyes if they even get an insult forming in their mind and before they can get out two words he has cut them off with a better one or when all else fails he'll begin to choke on juji fruit or fall out of his chair and they've lost their chance. The things I enjoy most about this show, for one is the acting, I know you wouldn't think that would be a strong point of a comedy talk show, but you rarely see an actor on any level on any medium of entertainment submerse themselves in a character as well and as thoroughly as Short does in Glick, pure genius. The second thing I enjoy most about the show is that as the viewer you almost get the impression that Short is doing this not for the entertainment of the audience, but merely for himself, you can truly tell he has a great time making otherwise hillarious or brilliant or influential people look like bafoons. It is in my opinion that this is one of the funniest shows in the history of television and one of the greatest comic performances day in and day out of any actor ever. Tune in but be prepared to have your sides split...
