Victoria Jackson Is Crazy (About America)
The before and after.
Remember the ditzy-sounding actress Victoria Jackson? You probably know her as Saturday Night Live's worst cast member of all time. Or if you can remember black-and-white TV, you might recall her fairly ridiculous standup routines on the Tonight Show.
