Storyline

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 <brian.b@usa.net>

Most memorable crying fits of laughter!
8 August 2005 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

Ah, it brings me back! I watched Bizarre on broadcast television between 1980 an 1983, my last years of high school. Eastern Quebec in those years was far away from cable, oh my! It was on black and white TV and it wasn't even a Quebec broadcast but some New Brunswick channel (CHSJ ?), that the antenna only received to 90%. I think we only got 3 channels back then anyway! Super Dave's antics always had me howling.

But I remember these 2 particular skits that counted as my first ever time laughing to tears (except at my teachers of course). They were both of the puppet show nature... for some reason, maybe cuz I was a young girl, maybe cuz my hometown was quite "liberal" I don't even remember topless babes, hmmm... But anyway, the 2 skits:

A simple down turned hand dressed as superman, with the 2 "peace fingers" as legs, flying around in front a black curtain, I don't know why, in print it sounds so lame, but the way it was done was just a riot. It was a really good spoof of Superman, which had to be one of my first satirical laughs, weeeee

The other was a puppet fly on a stick, bumping into a light bulb, in front of a black curtain, OVER AND OVER AGAIN, going bzzzzz bump, bzzzzz bump, bzzzzzz bump, bzzzzz bump. You know, in that same exact annoying way as when you're trying to quietly read a book at night with your ceiling light on and some dumb fly just don't get the message that it's pointless to fly to the darned light bulb.

They both made me cry, I loved the show entirely, as much as Benny Hill!
