Bob (Police Academy 3) Goldthwait, a graduate of the Jerry Lewis Make Fun of the Addled and Make Yourself Famous Academy of Comedy, gave me one chortle in his cable show. Goldthwait, as his standard raving, stuttering, screeching lunatic, tries to pronounce the name of a 1957 rock musician named Bob Rang. Thus were born the lyrics of the tune Barbara Ann, "Ba-ba-ba-ba-Ran." But now that I've ruined his one passable joke, it's best to follow Goldthwait's own advice in the show's title.
