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

This series popularized the character of accident-prone stuntman Super Dave Osborne, leading to a spinoff TV series and even a movie a few years later. The character, however, actually originated on an earlier John Byner TV series in the early 1970s. See more »

A breath of fresh air....
11 January 2003 | by (Calgary, Alberta) – See all my reviews

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!!!!
