Tracy Ulman is tragically unfunny as the host, but everyone else is great -- the big standouts are Caroline Rhea and Wendy Liebman. The latter in particular will leave you dying on the floor -- easily one of the funniest sets I've ever seen.
It strikes me that a lot of these great stand up shows are going to be lost to time -- very few of them ever make it onto DVD (or commercial VHS for that matter). You have a few classics like Eddie Murphy - Delirious, but most of them were only aired late night on HBO and that's too bad. I think executives figure that the humor is too topical and that nobody will find the sets funny after a few years have passed, but funny is funny.
The whole Women of the Night Series and most of the HBO Comedy Half Hour specials remain unreleased -- come on HBO!
