And he does it with such humor, I especially liked the gay males advice to straight males.  Info I have known and cherished.

Great video.

He is just adorable. It’s amazing how he keeps this silly, pompous character going, with just the right comic tone, no matter what unexpected thing happens — and even when a guest seems to forget that it’s satire.

Also, it’s inspiring that someone with such a weirdly shaped right ear has been able to overcome this handicap and live to be kissed by Jane Fonda!
