Orson Welles and the copycats
2 July 2006 | by (new york) – See all my reviews

I remember this show fondly. Especially a show where Orson Welles was the guest host. Yes Orson Welles. I was only 8 years but I knew him as a personality not as a great director. In one skit he is the host of a mystery show, mocking his own series at the time. The show is sponsored by "Freds gas station" or something like that. He sits down and says "sit back and with a fine glass of Freds gas, enjoy" I broke up into laughter. Now I can see that he was able to mock his own persona and be funny doing it. I'll never forget that image. The show was vintage 70's skit comedy and the impersonators were the best in the business. I hope this show is brought back on DVD.
