Ah, Tracy Ullman. You should know that the Kamper has a special weakness for the funny ladies (don’t get me started on Catherine Ohara), and Tracy Ullman is one funny lady. She’s got a new show “State of the Union” coming to Showtime — which means — cheapskate that I am — I’ll see it in a few years, when the first season is released on DVD. But then good comedy is ageless. Comedy fans will recall that it was Ms. Ullman who gave a certain crudely drawn animated show its start.
Here is a clip from “Tracy Takes On,” her HBO series from a while back. You could almost pick a clip at random and it’d be funny, but this one is a favorite — Linda Granger takes on marriage.
