I was a little ashamed of the corny headline of yesterday’s Lowbrow, but it seems like everyone’s buzzing about things Liza lately. In my mind, her screen career has been one long yawn, bookended by her brilliant turns as Sally in Cabaret and Lucille 2 in Arrested Development. This montage of her appearance on Larry King Live, which has been making its way around the internet over the past 36 hours, cements her as a comedic genius, or at least as the crazy aunt who fills the uncomfortable silences at Thanksgiving dinner with inappropriate non sequiturs. The money shot comes when coffee spurts out her nose after a caller tells her he’s a muscial theater major.
