garryOct. 13 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Stand-up comedian, actor and writer Garry Shandling has joined the club of men who go to any lengths to hide sagging skin, a receding hairline and a growing paunch.

He has continued to grow and improve as an entertainer. His looks, though they had evidently been subjected to a few nips and tucks over the years, had never been as grossly distorted as in the present. While earlier, he seemed to be aging gracefully with only a mild effort to keep age at bay, his new look makes him look as if he has overdone things in an effort to look far younger than his age.

Garry Shandling started his career as the scriptwriter for popular hows such as Welcome Back, Kotter and Sanford and Son. He came into the limelight by performing a hugely applauded stand-up comedy on “The Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson. He started the “It’s Garry Shandling’s Show” in 1986 and ever since his career has been meteoric as comedian, writer and actor.

The veteran American comedian’s new look, which he unveiled in New York on Monday in an episode of “The Late Night Show With David Letterman”, has been described by as a “permanently-stuck-in-a-wind-tunnel” expression. It looked raw, reddish and bloated, and weight gain was definitely not the reason. Apparently, it was a case of a nip-and-tuck too many. On “The David Letterman Show”, his skin looked so taut that it seemed it must be difficult for him to open his mouth to speak.

The terrible new look definitely puts Garry quite high up in the list of goofed-up plastic surgeries.
