John Candy As Karl Bildenhausen Is The Funniest Thing You’ll See All Day

I think on the Retroist we’ve perhaps tipped our hand that we were and still are very fond of the late great John Candy and his comedic performances. It’s easy to see why when you watch his work in such skits as Building a Better House with Karl Bildenhausen from the amazing Second City Television sketch comedy show.

So take a little time for yourself and enjoy the host of Building a Better House with Karl Bildenhausen as he and his loyal canine Prinz take a trip to the hardware store to pick up some wooden screws.

At the 1:10 mark, where Candy mentions to Prinz that he has his own scarf now…I just lost it…I couldn’t stop laughing for long minutes. Well, until I saw Prinz get angry that is!

For more John Candy goodness might I suggest listening to Episode 90 of the Retroist Podcast?

Make sure to also check out Episode 191 featuring Summer Rental!
