Mean Gene Okerlund and Bob "Super Dave Osborne" Einstein.
Grew up watching both as a kid and enjoyed them both.
Regarding Bob Einstein, check him out on this episode of Gilbert Gottfried's podcast, he is an absolute raconteur:

You mean vaxs are not necessarily a tool of the establishment designed to (A) Nanny state us or ( B ) a tool of big pharm just to make money?

RIP, one of those actors that could bring class to a movie playing any role, and thanks for the best scene of that movie.

Another great actor, Bruno Ganz, dead at 77. Brace for another wave of "Downfall" Youtube clips.

Im genuinely sorry to hear that. I really liked what he did with that part. He played him as the cold and empty son of a bitch he was.

One could say that his portrayal and the myriad YouTube parodies that followed destroyed any possible further lionization of Hitler, who will forever be a pathetic loser unable to cope with defeat.

Ironically, some accused "Downfall" of making Hitler look too human. I say that's a good thing - this guy wasn't some bodysnatching alien that dropped to Earth and made Germany and others bend to his will through some supernatural powers. He couldn't have committed all he did on his own without willing helpers, mesmerizing and inspiring type that he doubtlessly was.
Of course Ganz had a long and distinguished career long before that. He worked with director Wim Wenders multiple times, first in the 1977 neo-noir "The American Friend", and both in the epochal "Wings of Desire" and its sequel "Far Away, So Close". Also in Werner Herzog's 1979 remake of Friedrich Murnau's "Nosferatu" and the great 2008 "The Baader Meinhof Complex". His international work included "The Boys From Brazil", the 2004 remake of "The Manchurian Candidate", the 2009 Liam Neeson vehicle "Unknown Identity" and Ridley Scott's 2013 "The Counselor". Last year he was to appear on stage in Mozart's "The Magic Flute" at the Salzburg Festival, but had to quit rehearsals at urgent medical advice.
Speaking of which:
Brace for another wave of "Downfall" Youtube clips.
Here it comes, and it's actually not bad.
