Default Simon Helberg Skits

Could anyone tell me what skits Simon has done on the show thus far so I can try to find them on kazaa and what you thought of them? I watched a few saturdays but they were repeats - simon was my boy in college and I want to see his success (hope they don't make him out to be "the spazzy wacky guy" like the press photo on the site makes him look)

Thanks

I know he did more sketches, but at the moment I can only recall the Seventh Heaven parody with Kelly and Jack Osbourne guest starring. It aired a few weeks ago.

So you knew Simon? Well, can you tell us a bit more about him, he seems like a total mystery castmember so far. What impressions and characters can he do? Where was he born, how old, that how'd he land on MAD that type of thing? I think it's cool how you knew him!

Yes, they portray him as the "spazzy wacky guy" unfortunately. He seems really funny though.

Thanks for the info, I will look up that sketch, and if anyone else knows of others please tell me.

It feels really funny answering questions about simon, but ...

he lived across the hall from me freshman year at college (98), he ended up leaving school after that year and going back to california to work full time - he never wasn't into email back then so I haven't been able to keep in touch since.

too bad about the wacky, spazzy thing - I mean, he is wacky, but in the good way - hope he does get to be natural on the show - he was one of the funniest guys I've hung out with, but I know that funny people in real life don't always get to be funny on tv (see the upright citizen's brigade - except the girl who is completely unfunny everywhere).

I always knew he'd be successful and am glad that it's happening - all the biographical and resume type info are on imdb.com I'm sure.

As for impressions, hmm, he woudn't really sit around the dorm and do impressions, you know? Though I do remember we'd be hanging out we'd tell people that simon could do anyone, so they'd suggest somebody famous, and he'd do them. So, for example, someone would say "do Christopher Walken" and Simon would go:

"This is me doing Christopher Walken"

then turn from the group, compose himself very seriously, turn back around, bend at the waist, affect walken's mannerisms and voice, and proceed to say things like

"owww, oh, why are you doing this to me, you're, you're, you're f-cking me in the ass, oww, that hurtsss"

while jerking about as if he, christopher walken, was being "done" by simon.

It worked pretty well with many celebrities - there are little touches he could throw in for anyone - and it most certainly always involved anal rape.

Guess that won't be showing up on madtv, but if it does, please let me know.

Jill's only 23. They like getting younger castmembers don't they. I wonder how old Ike, Josh, Ron and Bobby are compared to Michael, Mo, Aries, Debra, Stephnie and Frank?

Ike has to be in his mid-late 20s. Josh might be a little younger than that. As for Michael and Mo, they're both the same age. Michael will turn 38 on December 31st and Mo aleady turned 38 in July. Stephnie is probably in her early-mid 30s and Frank's probably 36.

No way! Frank can't possibly be that old. I'd say he was in his mid-twenties or so.

Frank can't be in his 20s..the only thing that can make you think he's younger is the fact that he's really short

Default Hmm...

No, I would agree. Frank is most likely in his 20's. Maybe he looks a little bit older because of his weight. But, he has a very young looking face.

Simon has an VERY small role on the show. Which is kind of unfortunate, cuz out of Simon, Ron, and Paul, I find him to be by far the funniest.

BTW, does anyone know Simon's height? He seems very short. Just curious

Anyway, these are all the skits he has been in

Episode #806
The Birthday Train (as one of the people in the Birthday Train)

Episode #807
CHiPs 2002 (as the guy w/ Bobby Lee, stealing the tandem bicycle)
7th Heaven Thanksgiving (as Ruthy) [this was VERY funny btw]

Episode #809
Lords of the Bling - The Two Ta-tas (as one of the evil elves or something)

Episode #810
Epstein Christmas Tree Patch Commercial
Politically Correct Christmas Office Party

Aries is probably about 35 or 36 years old now.
Debra is probably around 33.
Stephnie is probably around 30.
I agree, Frank just looks older cuz of his weight. I'd say around 30 as well.
Ike is around 26 I would guess, but Josh is very young and has a very boyish face still.. maybe 21 even.
