I Love Laurie Metcalf

One of my all-time favorite sit-coms is Roseanne. I can watch the first few seasons over and over again and still laugh out loud.  Besides being entertaining, it is also a great comedy study.  The actors on this show have the distinct ability to achieve heightened comedy, sometimes bordering on ridiculous, while staying within the realm of reality and honesty.  That is my favorite kind of comedy.

Laurie Metcalf as Aunt Jackie is the best at this.  Here is why:

“Dad is Dead”

“Darlene is Pregnant”

Comic genius.  Can’t wait to see her in the Neil Simon plays!
