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>

Trivia

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 »

Great sketch show on cable from the 80s!
10 April 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wish I knew where to get a hold of this great sketch show hosted by the great John Byner. I remember watching this is a kid or at least trying to watch it, since it contained nudity, and was on late at night on HBO or Showtime, can't remember which channel. It was way ahead of it's time as far as having the finger on the pulse of what people liked in skits. It lampooned and spoofed commercials and TV shows like no other, which includes Saturday Night Live (which I also love). I think there was a sense of naughtiness that "Bizarre" reveled in that I liked. I don't think it's available on video, but I wish someone could find it on video and make it available. I think it would sell well! This show captured quite a lot during it's 30 minute running time and of course since this was pay cable, had no commercials to ruin the flow. If anyone knows anything about the original, uncut, unedited versions of this show and if they exist for purchase, please let me know! If I recall correctly, this show was also the launching pad for Super Dave Osborne (Albert Brooks real life brother) and I recall Howie Mandel appearing on it early in his career. It made sense since Mandel is

from Toronto and that is where "Bizarre" was taped. I could go on and on about what I recall from the show, but I think everyone gets the general idea. I fear that this show will remain a curio and remain in a time capsule somewhere. Someone resurrect "Bizarre"!
