This might be a bit of a hot take, but was anyone else unimpressed with his stand-up "comedy" act? I mean, it was a weird episode, everyone spends the entire episode fawning over him, and then when the big moment arrives, he gets up and tells some painfully dated and unfunny Reagan jokes and he looks like he's waiting for the audience to bust a gut with laughter. And that's the extent of his contribution. Was he really that big of a deal back in the day, or was he just some leftover from the old days who still had some semblance of popularity with the older crowd in the 80's and 90's?
