Bob + glasses in The Ben Stiller Show
I keep seeing headlines about Charles Manson (apparently something to do with the disposition of his remains), and I can’t help it but ever since this sketch on The Ben Stiller Show back in the 90s I haven’t been able to hear the name without recalling Bob Okenkirk’s hilarious performance.
The Ben Stiller Show’s Manson
After cult leader and convicted murderer Charles Manson died at age 83, many news outlets talked about his music career (i.e. Guns N’ Roses covered his song “Look at Your Game, Girl”), but one of the first things I thought of was this 1992 skit from The Ben Stiller Show. In a parody of Lassie, Bob Odenkirk played Charles Manson.
