Storyline

Wayland Flowers' diva Madame (a retirement age ventriloquist character who all ways spoke her/his mind while wearing fabulously over the top jewel and feather accented designer original gowns) starred as herself. Similar to "The Larry Sanders Show" (1992), the meat of each episode was in the backstage areas of her life. The primary cast included her three person staff, and a pre-teen Corey Feldman as the latch key neighbor kid who spent most of his days hanging around Madame's house. Most episodes dealt with standard sitcom style dilemmas in Madame's career or home life, peppered with Flower/Madame's biting one liners. Written by Silast

Sublime
16 January 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I can't believe this show has been forgotten. It had (it still has - on the shelf) a sublime, unique brand of humor - ribald and gentle, never insulting. So many people could learn about TRUE humor from it. It also had a great optimism. Memory fades. I don't remember anything specific, except the great style, good cheer and camp, and my never missing an episode and being in awe of it. Why must great things always be relegated to oblivion? Kent Skov's "Mad Movies" also met with public indifference.
