A Comedy Gem: Barbra Streisand and Linda Richman (Mike Myers) Get Farklempt on Stage - and It's Like Buttah


In the middle of a 1993/94 New Year's Eve concert in Las Vegas, an audience member starts up with Barbra Streisand. Who is it? Linda Richman, the character played by comedian Mike Myers in the Coffee Talk sketch on Saturday Night Live.

Wikipedia has an entry for Coffee Talk, explaining that in the sketch, Myers plays a stereotypical Jewish middle-aged woman named Linda Richman with an exaggerated New York accent who sports long, painted fake nails, lots of gold jewelry,  gaudy sweaters,  large dark glasses, and big hair, which she constantly adjusts. 

This character was a spoof on his real-life mother-in-law, Linda Richman. 

Of course it's a set-up, but the dialogue is funny, especially if you're a fan of Barbra or Linda/Mike.

Enjoy, and discuss among yourselves.
