One of the funniest TV-series from the 1980's, 22 December 1998
Author: Victor Morales-Laimon from San Francisco, California

Though Madame's Place was a only one-season series (and for a good reason), the first 5 or 6 shows were the funniest TV shows since Spike Jones and Groucho Marx in the 50s. The show had a "host" corner (ala early Johnny Carson) that once had Phyllis Diller as the celebrity guest in an incredible rapid-exchange of dubious cumpliments with her host that culminate when Phyllis reminds Madame that "...and your vanity table is a Decker & Decker!!" On another show Madame had Tab Hunter as the guest and she kept confusing him with other teeny boppers' hearthrobs of 50s ( Madame: "I always like you with Annette (Funicello) in all those beach movies!! Tab: "Madame!, that was Frankie Avalon.."). The show had other corners that sometimes (and increasingly) did not work so well. Only the portions over which Wayland Flowers had complete control (namely Madame) were always on target. I still enjoy my old video tapes from the original broadcast, but the are getting a little washed down, so hopefully whoever owns the rights knows what a treasure these shows are.
