Of all the talk shows, there's only one show that doesn't hesitate to take up such serious issues as teenage prostitution, aliens from outer space or breast implants in the Dick Dietrick style. Written by
One of my favorite shows was one that featured "Uncle Tome Make-Overs." The show featured a very concerned African-America father whose son was betraying his "people" because he chose to wear Dockers and Izod shirts instead of a dashiki and other African related clothing. An exchange between the the host, Dick Deitrich, and the father goes as follows: Dick: "Sir, how has your son's disregard for his African heritage manifested itself in his everyday life?" Father: "The other day, my son and I went to see a monster movie and he didn't scream or yell at the characters in the movie one time!" Another funny show was "Homeless People Make-Overs" featuring homeless people getting new hairstyles and trendy clothes. Dick would introduce the homeless man pushing a shopping cart onto the stage of the show. The man's hair and clothes would be matted with dirt, as well as sporting a very long and dirty beard. They'd whisk the guy away and later bring a completely different guy onto the stage looking very GQ and ready to walk down a fashion show runway.
Really clever stuff.
