Almost As Good As Stonehenge!

And I thought he peaked in This is Spinal Tap. (He just might have. You be the judge.)

Harry Shearer is amazing. An actor since childhood. Comedian. Writer. Voice of several characters on The Simpson's (Mr. Burns, Smithers, Reverend Lovejoy etc.).

Now he's on to bigger things: TV News. Shearer is exposing what happens behind the scenes of big network newscasts. From debating the validity of stories to popped collars, Shearer catches it all (with the help of several crafty employees who sneak him the tapes).

Here's the video of his latest target: Katie Couric. It's almost shocking. How can someone be even more annoying in real life than they are on TV? It's like she tones it down a notch when they're recording.
