Long Laughs
April 25, 2017  | By Eric Gould
 
Andrea Martin has a new NBC series, Great News, and it’s no surprise that after starting her comedy career, ahem, 40 years ago on Canada’s SCTV, (Second City Television) her physical comedy has lasting star power. The kids will remember her from My Big Fat Greek Wedding in 2002, but the rest of us treasure (and still liberally reference) her work on the landmark SCTV sketch comedy series with Martin Short, Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara. The SCTV premise was about a low-budget independent TV station with all sorts of one-off programming and commercial spots. One of Martin’s characters was Edith Prickley, the off-center station manager who was usually in a leopard-print suit and rhinestone studded glasses. Here she is in “Cooking with Edith Prickley” and BTW, don't miss the stuffing of the turkey at 1:50. —Eric Gould
