To differentiate the show from Saturday Night Live, the writer/performers decided to integrate musical guests into the plots of the episodes. The Fishin' Musician sketch was created as a way to highlight the musical guests if no other sketch was available. While some of the musical acts were chosen by the network, cast members asked for their own guests. For example, Eugene Levy and Dave Thomas requested Roy Orbison and Tony Bennett respectively - both of whom were at a relative low point in their career. See more »
Funnier than "saturday night live" after BELUSHI left...
This show was based on the famous SECOND CITY acting/comedy troupe touting FRED WILLARD and others. The shows strength was the almost "daffy" skits like COUNT FLOYDS late night movie, the dave thomas richard harris skit, and the MACKENZIE BROTHERS..not to mention the rip on GIVE EM HELL HARRY and JAMES WHITMORE. The original series ran starting in 1978, and was original to say the least, it's best attribute was that the WHOLE show was funny and not lopsided like SNL (where the first half is a gas and the last half sucks). No stupid skits like some of the character driven "we want to make a movie off of them" routines. The writing was ingenious and humorous. This is sometimes seen in syndication in smaller USA markets and COMEDY CENTRAL.
