I dont think he left for Jill reasons since I remember him making fun of Latino stereotypes whereas Jill wouldn't.


HOWEVER, thats all I saw Nelson doing, when he wasn't impersonation some Latino entertainer like Ricky Martin, Enrique Iglesias or Antonio Banderas.

I didn't get to see all of the season of CYE, but on one episode, lol, Larry David got in trouble for having marijuana on him because he got it for his Dad's glaucoma.

Also Mel Brooks hired Larry & David Schwimmer to be Leo & Max on The Producers, so @ the end of the season finale Larry & David performed a couple of parts of The Producers.

Yeah, he was originally supposed to play Leo with Larry in The Producers, but was fired. I think because of his attitude, lol. I'm not sure, I missed it.

HE wasn't a very good actor, but still funny. I don't like him very much.

Kinda stupid, that if he writed his own sketches, the're all about latinos and short men. Sometimes he was funny, but his not a very good actor.
