Dana Carvey recounts recent chat with George H.W. Bush
On last Sunday's monstrously long (but repeatedly funny) episode of "Kevin Pollak's Chat Show," guest Dana Carvey spent part of his 90-minute interview telling Pollak about the time a few months ago when he was hanging out with former President George H.W. Bush after a benefit.
"It was very human, really opening up," Carvey said of the hotel room conversation, for which Barbara Bush also was present.
Carvey catapulted to mega-fame on "Saturday Night Live" after he began doing impressions of the first President Bush more than 20 years ago. After that, the president and the comedian became -- and have remained -- good friends.
The following excerpt of Pollak's entertaining interview with Carvey contains a couple of quotes from Bush Sr. that, if Carvey is relaying them accurately, are more than a little funny.
