a comedy finishing school
26 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

When these homages to the Friars' Club affairs were held, comedians and entertainers were available that had histories going back to the vaudeville circuits. From the creaking-board stages that doubled as movie houses in cities all over the world to the art-deco period of Hollywood to the more-current styles of Dangerfield and Monty Python, from Borscht (sp?) Belt fare to Orson Wellesian commentary, just about every kind of act and talent was represented before Martin's dias. Only Martin could have done it, and only Las Vegas could have handled it.
