Darrell Hammond was always one of my favourite SNL cast members. He can do so many impressions. I don't care too much for politics so I liked it when he did stuff like portraying Sean Connery on Celebrity Jeopardy. When you see him on TV, he makes comedy look easy and natural.

Now that I read what was happening to him behind the scenes, I am amazed that he could function at all on stage. (Stuff like cutting himself and having panic attacks.) Sounds like his mother was extremely mentally disturbed and terrorized him constantly and he is still traumatized. Even though he seems to be able to find medical help, he still has flashbacks and breakdowns, even as recently as within the last couple of years.

Darrell Hammond made me laugh with his various impressions on "Saturday Night Live," but his autobiography is anything but funny. It kind of proves the old maxim that behind every clown is a man who is crying. Mr. Hammond's early life was anything but a three ring circus and his early demons have affected him throughout his life. The book ends on an up note, with Darrell putting his life together.
