Storyline

This show popularized a rapid style of vignette comedy show where comedy sketches, punch-lines and gags are edited together in a rapid and almost random format. Regular trademark elements included the joke wall, the dancing woman tattooed with one-liners and the fickle finger of fate award. This series would inspire such shows as Monty Python's Flying Circus and Sesame Street. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Ver-r-r-r-r-y Interesting...and FUNNY.
28 July 2006 | by (Tokyo, Japan) – See all my reviews

Sketch comedy 60's style.

This pre-dates most of the SNL and In Living Color style shows that dominated TV in the 70's, 80's & 90's.

Rowan and Martin made an excellent team. Rowan's straight delivery with a hint of exasperation mixed greatly with Martin's sarcastic, deadpan quips.

My personal favorite was Arte Johnson. Anything he did made me laugh like a banshee. And Henry Gibson's poetry was a close second. But there were no duds at all in this show.

Guest watching also made this a fun trip. The psychedelic decor dates it a little, but it doesn't hurt. A lot of the humor seemed off the cuff.

And when Goldie Hawn picked up her Oscar while on the show, the whole cast kept dropping asides about it during that week's filming. They all made several comments about it.

I saw this during it's brief Nickelodeon run in the late 80's. Bring it back.
