Borscht Belt Heaven
18 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This one's a quick flicker of TV past - an unsold pilot that's sort of a D-list Algonquin Round Table...a collection of, mostly, past-their-primes Borscht Belt comics gathered 'round to try to crack each other up. I'd have to agree with network execs that long-term weekly appeal might have been limited. BUT: This particular collection gathered for the pilot is surely worth 22min. of your time (check out the cast list on this page...Mel Blanc, Alan 'Fred Flintstone' Reed, Rose Marie and more). For me, a LONGtime Stooge-o-phile, the highlight is Moe Howard. While there's a pretty fair amount of non-Stooge footage of him available (if you look for it), this might be the only time I've seen him being funny (HILARIOUS, in fact), as HIMSELF. He's riffing off funny stories with veteran, expert stand-up timing, and his 3 or 4 minutes are A JOY! It's available on the Pub-D-Hub channel, and maybe elsewhere, and is absolutely worth seeking out.
