If you love "show business humor" this is hilarious
30 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ever been to Vegas and found yourself attracted and appalled by the glitz? Did you have a mixed reaction to Sammy Davis Jr.'s style ("how can he talk like a parody of himself and still be so cool?")? Have you ever found yourself wondering what it is like to live and work, not in "show business", but in "the business of show?" If you've ever dreamed of being a member of the Rat Pack, this is must-see TV.

The jokes are many and way inside show biz, but funny just the same.

From Gene Pitney's performance of the Shaffer-penned title song, a Town Without Pity parody, to the ending at an on stage Las Vegas wedding, if you laugh at show business's self-seriousness you will love this video. Lots of guest stars too,including David Letterman, and Harry Shearer.
