That clean-cut "Barry" over middle-right in the lineup -- I remember when you were part of a magic comedy trio, mister. Doooon't get cocky. And the other clean cut guy, Tom, was the one for whom we invented the dialogue internal (AS IF TO CHIMP). One of "The Three Seamus's" on the COSBY staff -- myself; my co-creator on LEVERAGE, Chris Downey; and Tom. At one point Bill would want a writer on the set, and as we were interchangeable Irish guys, he would say [COSBY VOICE] "Send in one of the Seamus's!" [/COSBY VOICE]
Actually, there's a couple "kids" in there who I remember as young comics. Man, they managed their career MUCH better than I did.
Seriously though, it's nice to see your friends do well. I'm literally sitting here grinning. Good to have you back and on the side of frikkin' justice. Because Colbert is, in the end, our Paladin.
