Classic SCTV comedy
24 February 2014 | by miwatsonsSee all my reviews

Give me a C, a bouncy C! This Martin Short special is an absolute hoot. I was fortunate that my brother made a VCR copy back in the 80's and it is still in my parents collection Watching the SCTV gang over the holidays was an unexpected treat an brought back memories of the great stuff these guys did Jerry Lewis and Jacky Rogers Jr. my personal favorites. Candy and Levy cameos as Marcel and Stupic Eddy are priceless. Can do without Andrea Martin bit, but other stuff has inspired family quotes used quite often; "do I look like I am to be barked at?"... Don't pass up an opportunity if you get a chance to see this classic.
