Jiminy Glick Returns to Abuse Larry David in ‘Maya and Marty’ Premiere (Video)

Martin Short first played hapless interviewer back in 1999

Martin Short brought back beloved character Jiminy Glick for the premiere of NBC’s “Maya and Marty” on Tuesday, in which the notoriously bad interviewer sat down with Larry David.

Glick asked David about his time on the short-lived comedy series “Fridays,” and then asked the comedian if he played a curmudgeon on that show like he does on every other show. David responded by telling Glick that he is much thinner in real life than he looks on TV.

After a few more terrible questions, David started to get visibly angry. Glick asked him if his anger is based on the fact that he is a Jew. “Because Jews have rage,” Glick said. “I read that somewhere.”

Glick also got David’s opinion on the importance of urinal dividers and if they “take the fun out of urinals.” “To glance over and see what your friend from a different land might be sporting, wasn’t that more interesting than looking at the side of a wall?” Glick said.

Short first debuted the Glick character on “The Martin Short Show” back in 1999. While the show only lasted one season, Glick was spunoff into his own Comedy Central series called “Primetime Glick.” That show went on for three seasons and spawned a movie, “Jiminy Glick in LalaWood.”

“Maya and Marty” airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.
