Richard Jeni: Platypus Man
- 1 hr
This hour-long comedy special featuring the genius of the late comic Richard Jeni, served as the pilot for his short-lived television series. Jeni describes how he developed his concept of a solitary male known as Platypus Man, inspired by a National Geographic special he saw on TV. Filmed live in 1992 at Chicago's Park West Theater, Jeni's humorous ramblings cover such topics as football announcers, bad news, sex, love songs, dining on lobsters, cooking shows, the music scene and current politics.
