Larry Himmel was are local go-to TV guy when I was a student at SDSU back in the '80's.
He was VERY funny and could have gone on to a Lettermanesque career nationally, I bet.
Didn't he also have a segment on his programs where he dressed like a superhero and had a sidekick, and they ended up in the penguin exhibit at Sea World and such? I can't remember the sidekick's name. Also, wasn't that the same channel that had Michael Tuck?
