Chris Elliott's FDR: The One Man Show review:

"FDR: One Man Show" ... oh my gawd, I do not even know where to begin. Words cannot describe how completely off the wall this is. Chris plays the wheelchair-bound Franklin Delano Roosevelt with such kitsch (?) chutzpah (?) ... there's no English word for it, but I bet there's a perfect Yiddish word to describe this flick! Let's just say that Chris Elliott doesn't let historical facts get in the way of his telling the story of FDR's life, and he's a genius at portraying a terrible actor. Make no mistake, Chris Elliott is *not* a bad actor -- he is a great actor who can play a terrible actor like nobody's business.

It's a shame this is out of print, and that the used ones being sold on Amazon are going for over $40! Yikes! If you don't own this tape, please do yourself a favor and find some way to get your hands on it. I promise you will not regret it!!!

Thankfully some wonderful soul has uploaded it onto Youtube so you can enjoy Chris Elliott's FDR: The One Man Show below.
