Medical Mockery

Half Baked star Harland Williams laughs at sick people.



Comedian Harland Williams just got out of the hospital. He went in for some cosmetic surgery. "I had my chin removed," he says. "I don't know if that was smart. I had to cancel my violin lessons." Then he visited patients, because "laughter is the best medicine. So, I found the sickest people and laughed at them."

Before going into comedy, Williams — who played the jailed Kenny in Half Baked — thought of becoming a marine biologist. "One side of my brain is artistic, and the other side is fascinated with science. Maybe I should do science comedy: Three dissected frogs walk into a Petri dish . . . "
