Storyline

This early comedy program started off with a rotating cast of four famous comedians, each of whom would take turns hosting the show. The program format was similar to that of a Vaudeville show or stage revue, with the prestige of the hosts enabling the show to bring in equally well-known talent for individual performances. As more hosts were added to the program's roster, the name was changed to "All Star Revue". Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>
