    Q&A With John Lovitz, "I Do What Is Funny To Me."
    He first made us laugh until we cried when he and his characters including Hanukkah Harry and Tommy Flanagan joined "Saturday Night Live" in 1985. And then he never stopped. Comedian Jon Lovitz has appeared on stage, screen and television, doing signature voice-overs on shows including "The Simpsons" and cracking us up with his deadpan humor and acting expertise in shows ranging from "Two and A Half Men" and "Married with Children" to "Friends" and as part of stage productions including "The Dinner Party" and on the big screen in movies including "A League of Their Own" and " City Slickers II: The Legend of Curly's Gold." Lovitz will be featured along with fellow comedian Tim Meadows at this year's Nite of Lite Laughter at the Bushnell, an annual event sponsored by Lite 100.5 WRCH and Hartford Hospital to benefit the hospital's Helen & Harry Gray Cancer Center. Recently we laughed all the way through the interview as he Spilled the Beans with Java.
