How often does a stand-up comic make you laugh so hard that tears run down your face? Not that often, I'll wager. Most modern comedians can't even make me laugh out loud. Buddy Hackett could, consistently, even when what he actually said wasn't that funny. It was his delivery, his timing, his personality that made him such a natural comedian. Nobody has ever done it better in the entire history of show business. This show was a ground-breaker for the then-fledgling HBO network, because viewers had never before heard that kind of language coming out of a TV set. It's a piece of comedy history. And hey, we all need a good belly laugh every now and then. (Note: the profanity isn't particularly offensive or jarring by today's standards, but if you have small children you may wish to wait until they are asleep.)
