Storyline

A prehistoric ancestor to "America's Funniest Home Videos," this show traveled America looking for the funny, the heart-warming, and the downright bizarre. The various segments were narrated by the hosts of the show, and featured things like The Flat Earth Society, a man who could actually run up a 20 ft brick wall, and an old woman who could put the tip of her nose in her mouth. This show defined a genre which would be followed later by shows like "That's Incredible" and "Games People Play." Written by Afterburner <aburner@erols.com>

To bring back good memories about Real People
31 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Back in 1979, When I watched Real People. It was a classic and funny lines and funny stories about funny people in their lives. And they do funny things on the road, Story like, Where people wear no clothes in the restaurant. Ladies live in the Indian totem pole in Traverse City, Michigan. There are many, many stories to choose from. and many other stories about the Real People. They been on for 50 times and 50 shows. 10 per season. They always go on the road to Philadelphia, Detroit, Los Angeles. It's like a real good stories about people all the time. I always like Sarah Purcell a lot. Thanks for all the good memories about Real People.
