#6 - Gary Kroeger

So you're plucked out of obscurity while doing sketch comedy in Chicago with friends like Brad Hall and Julia Louis-Dreyfus to be on Saturday Night Live as the fresh new comedy voices and save the franchise - only to then be in the shadow of strong personalities like Eddie Murphy, Martin Short and Billy Crystal - then you try to find your way through show business with that pedigree as your ticket - then you run a restaurant - then drop out and go back to the Midwest to try and lead a normal life - where you get divorced and get political...and...and...

That, and so much more, is the strange, fabulous journey of one Gary Kroeger. His story, tinged with no bitterness or negativity, is fascinating, funny and ultimately inspiring. Prescience, sword-fighting and even George Hamilton are included in this highly snarky episode - but, alas, no monkeys. -LM
