I remember seeing Howie Mandel for the first time on this TV show that aired in the early 80's (I could not tell you what network). He played a shoe salesman in one sketch wearing a rubber glove on his head and a giant glove shaped bag on his side (is that from his act?) at any rate, it worked for me and, trust me, I am not exactly a Howie Mandel fan. I thought the few episodes I saw were hilarious. The show had shades of Monty Python and SCTV. I am not sure who inspired it, though I see SCTV alum Jim Staahl was a writer. I just remember laughing my ass off. For some strange reason, at least in North Carolina, it aired in the afternoon. If Jim Staahl does not look exactly like Ed Bagley Jr., than the latter was on the show too. Strange it showing at that time of day. It would air soon after the show 20 Minute Work Out, another gem from the early 80's that seemed to come from out of nowhere, and disappear into the same. I would be interested in knowing where this show came from and why it died so quickly. Also, who were the cast members not listed? Strange also how this is the only comment on the show. I googled Laugh Trax and got nothing. Why isn't there any info on this show. What is going on here? This page looks like an abandoned warehouse. Heelllooo! ... loooo looooo looooo Fwwwwp! (dart to neck) Merv?.... black out
