If you don't know who Jon Glaser is, here's a link--it's him on his former boss Conan O'Brien's TBS talk show.

On Friday, Jan. 18, the Second City alum will return to his roots for a comedy writing salon. Which conjures visions of Versailles and Louis XIV and grand fetes in the Salon de Mars. But Glaser is far more hilarious than the Sun King was, as evidenced by his appearances on such celebrated comedy hits as "Parks and Recreation," "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "30 Rock." He's also the creator of "Delocated" on the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim, and not long ago he wrote a book called "My Dead Dad Was in ZZ Top." Here's a shaky, blurry video of actor Paul Rudd reading an excerpt in 2011. (Warning: Some content may not be suitable for all viewers--perhaps you). Rudd's impression of Jay Leno is pretty damned funny.
