I still remember some of the skits
26 September 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm wondering if this amazing show is out on DVD, because it couldn't possibly be as funny as I remember it. I was only a kid, but burned in my memory are images of Danny Kaye as "Fat Daddy" in a takeoff on "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" talking about eating some deep fat fried food cooked in some deep fat fried fat; as Ronald Colman in Lost Horizon saying over and over (in a very British accent) "But I must get back to civilization"); a Student Prince takeoff that had a song called "In Vienna" which was sung constantly.

Though it's not listed, I'm sure Nita Talbot took part in this show as well, and I seem to remember her and Danny Kaye doing something where they yelled "Everybody out of the pool!" A fabulous show from one of the all time great performers.
