Edward Mayhoff ‘Ed’ Grimley is a fictional character introduced on the television series SCTV and later used on Saturday Night Live. He was created and played by Martin Short.
He is a hyperactive, neurotic nerd with a large frontal cowlick who is obsessed with banal popular culture, especially Wheel of Fortune and its host, Pat Sajak. He also loves to play the triangle, which for him consists of playing a recorded musical piece, striking the triangle once, and then wildly dancing to the recording. His catchphrases include “I must say”, “totally decent”, “makes me completely mental”, “doomed as doomed can be.” and “give me a break”. One 1985 SNL skit featured Ed’s look-alike Uncle Basil, played by TV sportscaster Howard Cosell. Click here to read more and watch the intro »
