Loved KopyKats
18 May 2005 | by (Las Vegas) – See all my reviews

I loved this show -- it was only on for a short time but has stuck in my brain all these years. Why no one has picked up the idea since is bewildering. I don't remember the Raymond Burr sketch, but it does sound reminiscent of what they did on the show. Brilliant.

I remember Marilyn Michaels being a standout -- not only because she was the only woman, but because she was so damn good! I also remember George Kirby. Amazingly, I DON'T remember Rich Little's participation, and didn't realize Fred Travalena was even performing that early.

For some reason I thought that this was originated by the BBC and syndicated in the US. But it is credited as an ABC show, so perhaps my memory is not serving correctly.

Producers: bring back The KopyKats..!! We need it so bad...!
