The Pruitts of South Hampton ***1/2 Comic Genius of Divine Phyllis Diller
24 October 2007 | by edwagreenSee all my reviews

How do you do? (3 times) My Dear. What a surprise! What a surprise! Nice to see you here. The Pruitts of South Hampton live like the richest folk, but what the folk don't know is that the Pruitts are flat broke.

These are some of the hilarious lyrics as the show started off each week. Phyllis Diller would come down in elegant gowns singing the title song only to ask for a buck at the end.

Diller's comic timing was never better as the viewers were led on weekly escapades. Remember when Diller opened a safe and found something better than money? The audience roared when she announced that she had found Regina Wentworth's birth certificate? Wentworth was played by Gypsy Rose Lee.

Sadly, this show didn't last too long but the laughter sure did. Remember Mrs. Pruitt's butler? He was a funny one as well.
