Saturday Night Live - Jimmy Tango’s Fat Busters

Before Funny People, I saw a trailer for the latest A Christmas Carol adaptation. For some reason I get the startling suspicion that Jim Carrey is slowly becoming an awful lot like Calculon in his performance style. This may be a gollumesque development when one craves an Oscar too much.

I don’t mean to knock Jim Carrey. He’s great in a wide variety of films as well as in completely unhinged bits of comedy. Above is Jimmy Tango’s Fat Busters, which is a brilliant/bizarre sketch that people rarely bring up. The sight of Will Ferrell in a heated vibrating bead suit is more than worth a glance.
