Bill Maher takes the mic in The Best of An Evening at the Improv.

Television’s wildly popular An Evening at the Improv originally premiered as a series of one-hour shows in 1982 on A&E and featured the hottest stand-up comics of the day.

Somerville House’s four-disc, 12-hour collection The Best of An Evening at the Improv features the hysterical work of more than 100 comedians culled from the first 52 hours of the series, including spots by such beloved old-school shtick-meisters as Milton Berle, Shecky Greene, Shelley Berman, Jackie Mason and Mort Sahl alongside such soon-to-be-superstars as Jerry Seinfeld, Howie Mandel, Jim Carrey, Richard Lewis, Bob Saget, Arsenio Hall, Billy Crystal, and Bill Maher.

The Improv Club opened its doors in Los Angeles in 1974, the second Improv venue to be opened by founder Budd Friedman following his original outlet in New York City. »

Disney 53 Double Feature Part II: The Black Cauldron

23 June 2013 12:42 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

As we march bravely on through 2013, Thn will take a nostalgic yet critical look at the 53 Walt Disney Animated Classics, from Snow White to Wreck-it Ralph, through the obscurity of Fun And Fancy Free to the Golden Age of Beauty And The Beast. These are the films the Walt Disney company are most proud of, the ones that hold a special place in our hearts, the ones that still cost a fortune to buy on DVD. This time, things get a little dark with The Black Cauldron.



Directed by Ted Berman and Richard Rich

1985/ 80 Minutes

The Black Cauldron is considered to be one of the biggest box office failures in Disney’s history, and one can sympathise. This film is dark.  It’s almost completely against what many people see Disney standing for; it cranks up the drama and the tension while dialling the cute-and-fuzzy factor down to almost nothing. »
