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
