The original HBO version began with the following message about the special: "The show you are about to see is an exact record of what happened live, on stage, at the Cleveland Music Hall on the nights of February 6th and 7th, 1976. Scenes from both performances have been included. No laugh tracks or applause tracks have been added. Nothing has been overdubbed or altered in any way. This is the way it was." See more »
I am surprised no one has reviewed this TV Special. I saw it once, the night it showed on network television. I had not seen one of her live shows (yet) but I remember being convulsed with laughter and enjoying her antics no end. Much of the content, as I recall, was repeated in subsequent stage shows. It was one of the raunchiest things I had seen on television up to that point and I recall being surprised at some of the things she was doing at the time. But I loved every minute and frankly can't figure out the tepid rating it is getting from the folks here on the IMDb. I wonder if they actually saw the show. I never forgot it and have been on the lookout for a DVD. Should I manage to lay my hands on one, I will be back to update this review. She is certainly one of the greatest performers to come out of the 20th Century and we are well into the 21st and she shows no sign of fatigue.
