Glover was attempting to emulate Kaufman - and where better to do that than on the David Letterman show? - but almost kicking our man in the head was a, hoho, step too far.
Or not quite far enough.

There are hours and hours of Letterman at his chaos-embracing best on YouTube.

I mean, he gets the joke here, he's revelling in it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6p0sr2BejUk&t=26s
I'm not sold TBH. What else would he do? It's not like he added to the situation, just a basic reaction.

Anyway, not the Letterman thread.

Not a Letterman thread, no. I will say, though, that him having Kaufman on his show numerous times is proof that he was a fan.

Rik Mayall proved in this film that he was the actor to lead a Doctor Who renewal. The role he was born to play and nobody thought of it.

absolutely agree, & with phoebe cates as his companion, please.

Mayall was at his height when "the show" was out of favour, though.

This might be the highest critics/audience score ratio I've seen.
