A themed variety show, in which the skits and music centered around Sha Na Na (a '50s-style "greaser" rock band) and the neighborhood in which they lived (an unidentified inner city neighborhood reminiscent of the Bronx). Written by
Bowzer once stunned a fourth season audience by announcing dramatically at the end of one episode, "This is the last Sha Na Na show you will ever see." He then launches into an explanation that "me and the boys (sic) have been giving it a lot of thought, and we've decided that it's time to move on". Moments later, this is revealed to be a setup for an elaborate joke, as Bowzer responds to a "message" from an off-stage producer: "What?! We HAVEN'T been canceled?!" He then pantomimes tremendous relief, and advises the audience to ignore everything he just said! See more »
I was never a huge fan of 50's rock, but I still couldn't help liking this show.
This was like every other comedy ensemble. Putting the greaser rock songs in and having guest stars from the same era helped a lot. You always wondered which lost classic they'd cover next. And putting comedy into the performances was great too.
Of course Bowzer pretty much owned this show. It would not have worked without him. Some of his humor sounded ad-libbed too. The guy was a trip.
Other favorite were Big Lenny (Why do the big guys always have the high tenors?) and Santini. (Great deadpan from him.) Great show.
