Storyline

The comedy on The Ed Wynn Show consisted mostly of old vaudeville schtick, with lots of corny jokes and silly sight gags. Each week, the show would end with Ed retiring to his bed, delivering quips as the credits rolled. Even though it was material Wynn was comfortable with, he found the technology of TV disconcerting. With technicians running around the stage, getting between him and the studio audience, it was hard for him to make a connection. Written by Pilot TV Network

Saw one episode.
14 April 2003 | by (Marion, IN) – See all my reviews



This was an early comedy/variety show.The only episode I saw, and probably the easiest to find, is the show guest starring The Three Stooges. They appear as "CBS Executives" and are literally cutting up the scenery! (literally) the show was sponsored by Camel Cigarettes and Wynn has a skit selling cigarettes from a display of cigarettes at least 6 feet high. Next weeks guest star, William Frawley, drops in for a carton and wants the one on the bottom. "He probably won't be on next week's show." With only one show to judge by, I have to say it was a good show in it's day, very similar to later variety shows like "Sonny & Cher, Donny & Marie, ect.
