Storyline

Years before "The Larry Sanders Show" came this Canadian-made sitcom taking place behind the scenes of the fictional "David Steinberg Show," starring real-life comic David Steinberg. Like the later Garry Shandling series, the show alternates between backstage antics and big-name guest stars on stage. The series is best remembered for co-starring many later comic powerhouses such as John Candy, Martin Short and Dave Thomas, years before they did "SCTV." Written by Anonymous

Unique & Funny
6 August 2018 | by markgorysSee all my reviews

This was a unique and funny show. It is like the Muppet Show in that it's a show about doing a show, and it very much is a forerunner to series like The Larry Sanders Show. David Steinberg would have stand up comedy, sketches, etc and the show was always funny and fun to watch, not great but a harmless and interesting way to spend an evening with some laughs thrown in. Some great guests too.
