Truly embarrassing and offensive comedy short. Thankfully Lou Holtz didn't make many. The nudist restaurant bit isn't bad, but the rest is. Really bad. Like in the restaurant when an angry customer asks for a demitasse and Holtz says 'what'? And the customer says 'a short black' -- and, you guessed it, Holtz brings out a little black boy as the punchline. No thank you. Lots of long, unfunny bits of Holtz going up against people like Arthur Treacher in which both just sit there and mug. The writing is inane.
And you can't really call any of it acting. I guess Hollywood figured anyone from vaudeville could fit right in and be funny. But there's a reason we know the Three Stooges and the Marx Brothers but not Lou Holtz. Because there's good, intelligent comedy. And bad, bad comedy. Like this.
