This TV show was GREAT!!!
3 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, I am really reaching on this one, cause I was just a little tot the last time I saw this weekly variety show. If I remember correctly, there were some VERY funny weekly skits that were performed by Bill Cosby and others.

My favorite Cosby skit was a non-talking skit where Cosby was dressed in an overcoat and hat and played a real cool, non-talking dude who would come across unusual / funny things or people every week. Instead of saying something cool, he'd express himself by sticking both his hands up and wiggling them in a certain manner (ya had to see it). There was also cool music playing.

Another skit was done with Cosby (as himself) talking to a couple of prehistoric mythical puppets. The main puppet was called The Great Pavozz, and the background was volcanic. He'd always speak out of the side of his mouth and say things like "It's gonna cost ya".

Foster Brooks was also a weekly character who played the best drunk I've ever seen. You'd swear he was going to vomit at any moment.

Lola Falana was the show's main dancer. She was beautiful and amazing.

That's all I got on this. Please write something if you can remember more.

Dean
