I'm a big fan of Bobcat Goldthwait's transition from in front of the camera to behind it. I loved him in the Police Academy movies, his role on Married With Children, as the voice of Mr Floppy on Unhappily Ever After, and even those Snickers commercials.
But there's something pretty awesomely dark about his movies. Let Sleeping Dogs has one of the more memorable openings I can think of. He last stopped by when his 5th movie, God Bless America, was released.
Now he's got a 6th one called Willow Creek. That's hitting theaters soon.
In the meanwhile, check him out at Gotham Comedy Club tonight and tomorrow night. Get tickets here.
