He's still a standup comedian at heart. Sure, he got side tracked into kiddie films, but he still has some left in him.

Hopefully. Like I said, we haven't seen it for decades, if it exists.

Hopefully, Eddie will do OK. Nothing is impossible, I never thought Chevy Chase would be funny again but Community proved me WAY wrong on that one.

Eddie certainly has the capacity to be funny, and I used to be a HUGE fan. I would be happy to be wrong, but I just think this will turn out to be a disaster.

I wonder if he'll incorporate some of the jokes from "Raw" into this gig? "To all the bruthas out there, stand up, whip out your d**** and go AAAAAAAHHHHH!!"

I want him to do his old Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood skit he did on Saturday Night Live back in the 80's. That would be down right funny.

That should be weird. I'm not looking forward to it. I'd rather they gave Jon Stewart another shot at it.
