Where Are They Now?
Snakkle Celebrates The 25th Anniversary Of Hit Comedy Good Morning, Vietnam And The Funnymen Who Busted Our Guts—Where Are They Now?
Everyone thinks they’re a comedian. Or at least behind the ranks in Saigon, they do. Adrian Cronauer is flown in from the Isle of Crete, to deliver the news and provide the much-needed morale boost for the American troops. But there’s a war at the radio station when Adrian’s gut-busting, easily delivered quips fail to make some of his superiors laugh. Things get political when Adrian learns hard lessons about whose side he’s really on during the Vietnam War. It’s been 25 years since this bunch of wisecracks teamed up for Good Morning, Vietnam, Snakkle finds out where they are now! By Brittany Carson
Bruno Kirby as Lieutenant Steven Hauk in Good Morning, Vietnam (1987)
“That is not what we program, here!” Lieutenant Steven Hauk means well, he thinks he’s a funny, politically correct guy. He even has two jokes that Reader’s Digest might publish. But when Adrian waltzes onto the show, Hauk’s failed attempts at comedy fall flat compared to Adrian’s more natural gags. In fact, when Hauk takes over during Adrian’s suspension, servicemen listeners practically boycott the show in order to get Adrian back on the air. Poor Hauk, if Adrian hadn’t showed up, they wouldn’t have known what they’d been missing.
