Very Funny - A True Classic
11 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

I love this show. I taped this off showtime when I was a kid and wore out the VHS tape. It has permeated my entire life as I still find myself quoting bits and pieces from it today! Nobody knows what the hell I'm talking about when I bring up a Steve quote in random conversations. It really shows how so much of his humor transcends the decades when I can still find ways to relate back to it. The show has two short movies and Steve's live show taped in LA. The Absent Minded Waiter is the better of the two short skits in my opinion. Both of the short skits are loaded with cameo appearances from the stars of the 70's (notice a very young David Letterman) all of which were probably honored to appear with Steve. A MUST watch in my opinion!!
