A Decent Showcase of Comedy

I'm not familiar with Rodney Dangerfield's work, but from this TV movie alone I'd be willing to take a look at more of his stand-up or movies. The acts were all fairly good, with Jeff Foxworthy being my favorite of the bunch. The only one I didn't really enjoy was Larry Reeb, whose personality was off-putting and his delivery too dry for my liking. The skits could also go on for a bit too long, but the last one featuring Sam Kinison was probably my favorite part of the entire show. You'll enjoy this if you like Rodney Dangerfield, and I recommend it if you're into old-school comedy.
