Of all the talk shows, there's only one show that doesn't hesitate to take up such serious issues as teenage prostitution, aliens from outer space or breast implants in the Dick Dietrick style. Written by
Timothy Stack is maybe not so known for you people out there, but I must say that this man is one of the best comedians around the world.
He helps out to write on his own shows etc. and he plays his roles so good. The stupid, stupid guy who get's it right in the end anyway.
In Nightstand he played the Host Dick Dietrick and this is by far the best talkshow I've ever seen. NihtStand was a pure parody of most talkshows out there.. Springer show, Ricky Lake etc.
(In one show, can't remember the name of it though, there is this woman who starts to cry and Dick turns into the camera and says: They like this on Ricky you know)
Sadly NightStand is no more.. I recorded mostly every shows there was of it.. but I would like to see it released on DVD or something or maybe Timothy Stack will return in his amasing form as Dick Dietrick
This is a 10/10 show
