Storyline

A comedy game show in which the object was not to laugh at the comedians. Various comedians would have one minute each to make the contestant laugh. If the contestant were able to keep a straight face, he or she would win prize money and go on to face another comedian, and so on until at last they met a joke they couldn't resist.

Short Lived Classic!
19 June 2002 | by (Tampa, FL) – See all my reviews

This little syndicated game show gem was a staple of my senior year in high school TV viewing. If memory serves, CH39 in Houston, Texas had this show at 9:30 on week nights. Perfect stuff to end the day with.

You got to see some pretty funny comics do the best to get people to laugh at their stuff. If contestant didn't laugh, after a couple of tries by comedians, they won money. If they laughed, they lost.

I recall it had ran for only a year or so, and the host, Bobby Van, passed away in 1980. In the 1990's there was an attempt to revive the show, but the magic just wasn't there. Well for me, at least.
