This is an HBO special of Rodney introducing the hottest new comedians of 1986. There were some skits with Roseanne Barr playing Rodney's wife. Some of jokes in the skits are dated, but overall this was worth watching again.
Stand up highlights are Rodney himself, although he was way too brief, Jerry Seinfeld, the first half of Bob Nelson's act, Jeff Altman was pretty good, and some of Robert Townshend was good too. I didn't like the second half of Bob Nelson's act, him portraying the punch drunk boxer. Sam Kinison was loud and obnoxious, and, surprisingly, I didn't find him all that funny, even though I remember liking him when he was alive. Roseanne was OK.
If you're a fan of 1980's standup, esp. Rodney and Jerry Seinfeld, then by all means watch this.
