Barinholtz confesses that MADtv can look a lot like a raunchy, low-brow Penthouse to SNLs high-falutin Playboy - but both shows share talent pools, employing more sketch and improv- trained actors than stand up comedians.
As Barinholtz describes it: A sketch comedian is more used to working with others, but stand-ups are braver, bring a following and have more proven material.
Though he cant resist kidding one MADtv co-star who got his start on the stand-up scene: Bobby Lee is probably the most selfish, horrible, disgusting, terrible, pig of a human being Ive ever known, adding that Lees every bit as bad as Bob Saget.
Barinholtz mock-confesses: I often confuse the two: I keep asking Bobby to tell me dirty Full House stories.
MADtv has its season premiere tomorrow night (Sept. 16).
