Louie Anderson on The Arsenio Hall Show

Louie Anderson made a big Splash this summer on that ABC diving competition series. But you know, Anderson’s relationship with Arsenio Hall goes way back.

He played the fast-food employee at the McDonald’s rip-off joint, McDowell’s, in Queens where he met the characters played by Hall and Eddie Murphy in 1988’s Coming to America. Fast-forward 25 years and Anderson still has fast-food on the brain and in his belly. Just hear him joke on Wednesday’s episode of The Arsenio Hall Show about the McDonald’s across the street from his hotel, the McDouble on the Dollar Menu. He also jokes about going to the gym and his core workout.

Roll the clip.
