I remember seeing him for the first time on The Garry Shandling Show - a wonderful, non-formulaic, sitcom, which showcased his comedic genius. I saw him guest-host a few times on the Tonite show, and was impressed not only with his interviewing skills, but his cleverness, with a quip or ad-lib. Then came The Larry Sanders Show. With the help of equally talented co-stars, Jeffrey Tambor and Rip Torn, this parody of late-nite interview programs was so brilliant and ahead of its time. There were so many wonderful episodes, too numerous to mention here. It is wonderful that the programs are going to be re-aired on IFC - I'll be right there, re-watching.
This guy is the real deal and although he doesn't get too much attention more by the big media Shandling has had a long following.
He also guest hosted for Johnny Carson on the Tonight Show back in the 80's. He's a standup comedian and always seem to be funny at the drop of a hat. He had a funny show in "It's Garry Shandling Show". Then HBO gave him a series in "Larry Sander's show" which was king of a parody of Hollywood and it's celebrities.
Seeing him on Bill Maher recently it's clear he hasn't lost his touch. Like many comedians as well he really is great with his timing. Garry is talented in comedy in just about every way you think of from performing to writing.
Anybody who hasn't seen his work and is looking for another comedy man to get into they should definitely look into Garry Shandling's resume.
