Battered and abused stuntman Super Dave Osborne gets his own nighttime talk show. In between interviews Osborne, with the help of his partner and promoter, Fuji, performs his classic stunts that never quite seem to go as planned.
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 »
The sketches on this show were edgy for it's time. I saw most of the series when it aired on syndicated TV. They would bleep out the obscene words with a loud "honk" car horn sound which made it even funnier! The Bigot Family sketches always cracked me up. Even though it was a "racey" sketch it always ended with Byner as the Irishman saying "but we still love each other". Another one of my faves was the McDrive-thrus. Every show had a different one like: McJoke- in-the-Box, McSex-in-the-Box, & McCheech & McChong-in-the-Box. Super Dave was also great. He was like a human Mr. Bill. This needs to be out on DVD...soon!
