Pure genius: Tracey Ullman as…well, everyone

This is something truly inspired, and will be a bracing tonic for anyone who has spent too much time watching cable TV.  

God bless Tracey Ullman. Enjoy.

Thanks, Dcn Greg. It is too easy to forget what comedic genius Tracy is! I loved her show back when Fox was new, which featured shorts from the Simpsons. She hasn’t lost a thing!

Comedy Gold! She really is brilliant. I second what Deacon Scott said. When she was on Fox she did intro The Simpsons, as bumpers between segments. Having already been a Matt Groenig fan, I was in from the beginning. I also think her talent lies in her humility. She walked away from that show when it was on top because she knew it was time. When I lived in LA my hairdresser also did her hair – not because I went to some fancy LA place, but because he was a simple decent guy who did hair at a reasonable price. I never forgot that about her either.
