Phil Hartman is trending today, for tragic reasons. I'm compelled to take a moment to say Phil showed me (and many others) immense kindness & mentorship as I was getting started at our mutual theater company, the Groundlings. To hear Phil laugh was The. Holy. Grail. RIP, sir.

I often think about Phil Hartman in the choppin’ broccoli sketch. His reaction is the funniest part. He often did supporting roles but he made everyone else funnier pic.twitter.com/5Nn4GZu6iC

Pre-SNL Phil Hartman dubbed a line as Jack Nicholson in The Border. Love how he remembered the line and cadence almost exactly 10 years later (and Nicholson's reaction when Hartman reminded him about it)pic.twitter.com/p7k1UjocGc https://t.co/3b7H0wHVBF
