Mort Was an Actor?
12 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I was growing up, the edgiest comedian I knew was Mort Sahl. He, along with Lenny Bruce, wasn't afraid to attack the mores of the day. He was not a likable man, but I liked his approach to comedy. In this one, he plays a play-it-safe kind of guy who gets in over his head. Of course, the wheels fall off this episode when a couple guys, one of them Werner Klemperer (Col. Klink) set up a kidnapping in a restaurant, talking loudly enough so most of New York could hear them. Sahl's character is sitting in the next booth and doesn't need to try to eavesdrop. Soon, he is in the middle of their enterprise, beaten, not believed, forced to leave his comfort zone. One question: Why didn't the guys just kill him. They had no scruples. Still, it became apparent the Mort Sahl is a decent actor and his character is about all that recommends this offering.
