Rock 'n' Roll will never die.
11 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

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.
