Interesting episode here of Sanford and Son.

Fred, Lamont, Bubba and Esther go to see a new show called Steinberg and Son, where the Jewish father calls his grown son 'dummy' all the time and we have a cantankerous sister-in-law.

Hilarious bit as we see Foxx, Wilson and Page all making their way thru what is obviously the real Sanford and Son audience with an actor in place as a disgruntled audience member with their conduct.

So how does the show's producers manage to plagiarize the Sanfords' life so much? Turns out a young producer of the show got the idea from his cousin, . . . . Rollo.

It is funny, as Sanford and Son was modeled after the English comedy Steptoe and Son.

Funniest bit is definitely LaWanda Page, bickering with the usher who tells her to sit down, "I'll sit down when I get to my seat!" Then later, when the Aunt in the program, I think Aunt Ida, forgets her line when she is arguing with Steinberg, what name is she supposed to call him? Esther stands up in the audience and delivers her trademark line "Its Fish-Eyed Fool!"
