A cornucopia of all-time comedy greats would probably elevate this one into any "SHANDLING'S Best" list all by themselves...but they're woven into a ferociously fun frolic. Mr. Peck's, the "legendary" club where Garry and every other comedy luminary of the past four decades got their start, is about to be turned into a strip mall. Garry launches a benefit to save the day. He has to chloroform the headlining act, Red Buttons, to get him to come, but the cheeky wonderfulness in this three-parter never lets up. Danny Dayton, who made a career out of unforgettable guest star spots and supporting roles, plus a regular role on ALL IN THE FAMILY, is Mr. Peck. Rob Reiner, Steve Allen, Chevy Chase, Martin Mull, Carl Reiner, Father Guido Sarducci, Dabney Coleman, Paula Poundstone, Tony Orlando and Dawn, and Charlie Callas are all on hand to spoof themselves or just be themselves. The most memorable turn of all is given by Michael Davis (who?), who does a juggling routine with ping pong and bowling balls that is not to be believed. And ah, those lost days when date rape jokes were funny.
