Thank goodness a new collection of selections from Your Show of Shows has been released (see review). "10 From Your Show of Shows" has to be a classic about a classic. If one wants to see comedy (when comedy was clean and sex was dirty) this is a must. So many outstanding writers and comedians came from this show: Woody Allen, Carl Reiner, Howard Morris, Mel Brooks, Neil Simon, etc., etc. There simply is no comparison. I can not think of a more talented ensemble of people assembled for one purpose: put on a quality show with great comedy. If you haven't seen this movie do not walk but run to the nearest movie rental and see it. Each of the ten skits represent a different kind of comedy but "The Clock" has to be without a doubt the best. It is pantomine but watch the expressions on each face with emphasis on poor Imogene Coco who had all she could do to not break out in laughter. If you don't break out in laughter there is something really wrong.

This was truly the "golden age" of television.
