Picks and Pans Review: Tape Tip
>It's been a good year for HBO's comedy anthology, One-Night Stand, a highlight being the late Robin Harris (see page 80). But this week's show (Sat., March 31, 10 P.M. ET) takes the cake. Jake Johannsen's anecdotal style turns the obvious on its pointy little head. He has a slouched posture and a stop-and-start delivery that makes it seem as if he is stumbling upon his punch lines. It's more a soliloquy than a string of gags as Johannsen muses on garage sales and growing up in Iowa, but his askew perspective and literate phrasemaking render it very funny.
