This version of National Lampoon's Lemmings was interesting, if not always consistently funny, to me
19 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

Just watched the TV version of the National Lampoon stage show, Lemmings, on YouTube. Disappointed to not see Chevy Chase perform his "Colorado" number. I'll also admit up front that many of the non-musical skits like a doctor sketch and another one featuring Chase and John Belushi ragging each other about certain drugs weren't that funny. But when John did his Joe Cocker impression, including his falling down bit before getting back up, that got me in stitches. There was also a pretty blond lady, I think her name is Rhonda Coullet, doing a funny Joni Mitchell-like number and a brunet one doing Joan Baez. Oh, and Christopher Guest was amusing both as Bob Dylan and James Taylor. And Chevy sure could bang those drums, couldn't he? Overall, this video production of Lemmings is worth a look for seeing how three future "SNL" stars were like before their stardom.
