Who's your favorite cast member besides Bob and David and why?

Everyone is fantastic but if I had to pick I think I'd choose Jay. Jay just has some of the best facial expressions ever-- especially when he's reacting to other people. The lead in to the lawyers/blowjob sketch where he plays the newscaster who keeps calling after David but pretending he isn't is awesome. The smirk on his face is priceless. I LOVED him in the 70's streaker movie, and of course who can forget Choo Choo the Hurky Jerky Dancer? Oh-- and when he plays that sort of 1930's cat burgler type character he's brilliant.

I think my second runner up would be John Ennis because there's something so sweet and cheery about him.

Any thoughts?

Tom Kenny

"I'm havin' a bad time here, man."


Brooklyn Lincoln, Prof. Ellis D. Trails, countless deadpan news anchors, the Satanist televagelist, he is consistently funny and innovative, although I like a lot of people, including Jay, Jilly Tally and Paul F. Tompkins (the ghost of pornography past).

Jay Johnston is mine. I LOVED him as the Ghost of Mediocrity.

My fav would have to be Brian Posehn especially as the guy rolling a joint in "the Underground Tape Railroad".

I would say either Tom or Jay. Tom is probably more essential to the show esp with the news updates and his voice. Im probably a bigger fan of Jay Johnston though. He's great on the DVD commentary.

i would say that my favorite is jill talley. she's got the art of overacting down to an exact science. jill pushes her characters dialogue and physical presence, quite deliberately, in to an eye popping insanity. she's got the best fake smile that she can hold for an eternity, or until the next emotional outburst erupts. and her husband's not so bad himself!

I have officially claimed Jay Johnston as my personal property. I own the title to him, and can produce the deed of sale upon request. I even paid state taxes on him last year.

Now y'all get off my property... don't make me release the hounds...

I love Sarah Silverman because she's hot. I wish she was in more sketches. I also think Tom Kenny and Jill Talley are both hugely talented, Jack Black and Brian Posehn are hilarious, and Jay, John & Paul are cool, too.

I must also proclaim Jay as my favorite, followed closely by Jill. Jay edges out Jill only because I'm extremely physically attracted to him, and I'm not afraid to admit it!

While I love Jack like my own flesh and blood, I think of him as part of a separate entity -- Tenacious D. It also makes the decision much easier.

Tom is one of my favorites, I mean he's Spongebob too, for crying aloud!!! Did anyone else notice him in (my favorite band) The Smashing Pumpkins video "Tonight, Tonight" with Jill, too!?!

Goddammit Spatula, you wanna wrestle over Jay Johnston? C'mon, bring it!

*puts Spatula in a headlock*

Heee. Quite hot... quite worth fighting over, methinks...

That's Tom and Jill in the "Tonight, Tonight" video? Are you shitting me? I never noticed....now I must see it again! Dammit.


And you know what? I love Jay so much, that I'll set him free. If he never comes back, he wasn't mine to begin with. *sigh* But I'll still wrassle ya for the fun of it.

Nobody's really mentioned John Ennis. I think he's hilarious and a great actor. Anyone agree?

i also love john and his booming voice.

"you gay bastard! no gay son of mine's gonna say he's not gay!
you better get gay or i'll make you gay!"

he was also good in the blowjob sketch, and when he played that thing in uniform up bob's mom's ass.

It's a close call between Jay Johnston and Tom Kenny, but I would have to go with Jay. After watching Mr. Show more, I started to realize all of the great facial expressions and absurd characters he would emulate. Two of my favorites are his characters in "Red Balloon" and in the "Young People and Companions" sketch...."Our sign's not lost or son's lost." Fucking brilliant.

I always loved Jay, but the episode commentaries really made me appreciate him more. Not just cause he's hilarious in 'em, but also they point out his various facial expressions, which are kick ass.

My fave, though, is John Ennis. Really talented, sweet guy, and always nails his roles.

They are all great, but if I had to pick just one, I would have to say John Ennis. I just want to squeeze him for pootertoots and giggles. My favorite skit with him in it is the creepy peeping videos.

"THOSE ARE MY FRIES, NOW YOU DONT GET ANY!"

"Are you gonna behave? ARE YOU GONNA BEHAVE!"

"Come on, your getting in the bath"

I gotta say Tom as well. During the hail Satan skit, when he laughs with just his shoulders, fuggin' priceless. As I was reading the first post in this thread, though, I started to think of Jay's part just before the Blowjob skit and the next freakin sentnace referenced it. Yes, Jay is badass too.

Jay in Red Balloon??? Granted, his facial expression was classic, but he was on screen for about two seconds. Surely that can't be his most memorable performance.

I absolutely loved Young People and Their Companions. Not so much for Jay (although he was great in it), but just because it was one of those stand-out, brilliant Mr. Show sketches that the SNL audience wouldn't understand.
