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

Fun

This was a fun old show. Not sure how but my dad had copies of this probably like tenth generation copies of copies on VHS tapes. Host was really good and it was an original idea, came decades before Larry Sanders etc.
