A half hour sketch comedy show that is not politically correct (it was made in the early 1980's). It's not uncommon to see women in their underwear doing whatever is necessary to get a laugh. It showcased the talents of veteran performers John Byner (the host) and Bob Einstein as Super Dave Osbourne. Written by
In an early "Super Dave" sketch, Super Dave attempted to overcome being crushed by a wrecking ball dropped on his head, by repeating the word "Balloonball". The result, at the end of the sketch, was Super Dave's helmeted head, with two sneakers poking out underneath. The sketch was so popular that for a period Showtime network used a cartoon icon of Super Dave's head on two feet in ads for the show. See more »
In our super-silly p.c. dreamworld of 2003, it's just great to go back to an era where one didn't have to bite one's tongue and/or stifle a laugh at classic comedy, where the genuine foibles of various ethnic groups and "lifestyle" choices were open to examination and, yes, even ridicule.
Only two other commentators here, one a Canadian who predictably trashes a program produced on his own soil, and an American who loved it (like me...although a Canuck).
John Byner was a GENIUS!!!!
