Martin Short, as Jiminy Glick: “Have you ever thought of maybe getting some cranes up there?”
—Martin Short, in character as the obsequious celebrity interviewer Jiminy Glick, during an appearance alongside mayor-elect John Tory at a dinner event hosted by the Jewish National Fund. Glick’s jab at Toronto’s seemingly never-ending condo boom was only one of dozens of jokes that kept Tory laughing uncontrollably throughout the eight-minute bit. (At one point, in a fit of glee, the mayor-to-be shoves a whole doughnut into Glick’s open mouth.) The video is both awkward and hilarious.
