The funniest movie EVER....
6 June 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...and it's just clips from one of the funniest shows EVER!

"Your Show of Shows" was a rightfully regarded classic back in the heyday of live TV when people like Sid Caesar were king. And this compilation is the perfect starting point for people wanting to get familiar with the series.

"10 from Your Show of Shows" is just what it says: 10 of the funniest skits from the series (and this doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of the comedic genius herein. Of course, along with Caesar, there are stalwarts like Imogene Coca, Carl Reiner and Howard Morris, giving their all and doing whatever it takes for a good, guilt-free laugh (hard to come by nowadays). TIDBIT - this show was not only co-written by Caesar but also such young hopefuls as Mel Brooks, Woody Allen and Neil Simon. Impressive, yes?

The skits themselves are simple enough (woman tries to tell husband she wrecked car; executive board meeting; story of malfunctioning German town clock; interview with Dr. Helmut Von Spacebrain (Caesar); spoof of "This is Your Life", etc.), but what is done with them, especially in a world where there is only one take, is nothing short of genius.

You can tell these guys are pros and they make every episode of this movie a pleasure to watch. Anyone wanting to see what comedy is really all about should scour every movie rental store in their immediate vicinity and try to find "10 from Your Show of Shows". If you love to laugh, it's a choice you'll never regret - trust me.`

And speaking of 10...ten stars for "10 from Your Show of Shows".
