My Heroes: Michael O'Donghue

Michael O'Donoghue was one of the most brutally hilarious men who ever lived, the man who gave us "Children's Letters to the Gestapo" and "Mr. Mike's Least-Loved Bedtime Stories: The Little Engine That Died" and of course the famous impression of Elvis Presley with eighteen inch steel needles plunged into his eyes. No one else was better at making people laugh at things that weren't supposed to be funny.

Here he is with John Belushi in the opening skit of the very first episode of "Saturday Night Live."
