Penny Marshall Uses Fred Armisen For Memoir Commercial
Fred Armisen has an uncanny ability to transform himself into any person he wants. In 2008, on Saturday Night Live, he did an impersonation of Laverne & Shirley’s Penny Marshall that must of stuck with the actress—she’s now using him to promote her new memoir.
According to TV Guide, Marshall is using Armisen in a commercial for My Mother Was Nuts, in which he dons a blonde wig and Marshall’s signature glasses. The commercial is complete with Armisen reading sections from the book as Marshall and taking a phone call from Carrie Fisher.
Watch as Armisen commercial for Marshall’s book, My Mother Was Nuts, which is now available in stores. Be sure to check Armisen out on Saturday Night Live on the season premiere this Saturday on NBC.
