Trivia

This show was originally a summer replacement series in 1977 and was an unexpected hit. Hoping that it would still be popular, CBS decided to make it a spring replacement series. When it started again in January 1978 it was up against Laverne and Shirley, then the #1 show in the country. The show was canceled two months later. See more »

Robert Shields
29 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Robert Shields is simply the best mime left in the world. I know, I know, you think you don't like mimes. You haven't seen Robert Shields and Lorene Yarnell perform. Mimes get no respect in America. There are lots of mimes around now, at various skill levels, all imitating the man. I didn't think about mimes much until I watched him perform in downtown San Francisco in the early seventies when I was living there. When he and Lorene had their own show in 1977, they fascinated my twelve-year-old nephew, who would practice for hours in front of the mirror. Since he had already mastered the unicycle, I worried that he was destined for a circus. Instead, he chose music.

Robert Shields is unequaled in physical comedy. The man is brilliant.
