Very amusing
4 January 2003 | by MikeK-7See all my reviews

A string of vignettes conjured of sketches (one involving Billy Crystal in ridiculous make-up), showcasing numerous comedians before they became big stars.

P.S. --- This comedy short aired on a pay cable T.V. station in the early 80's called ONTV (Satellite Television), available exclusively to subscribers in the Midwest (I think). I remember it was the first premium channel in St. Paul until around 1984, when HBO hit the airwaves. Does anyone recall this station? Any information about it would be greatly appreciated.
