A time capsule of good and bad early 80s comedy
27 February 2005 | by Dr.BrentSee all my reviews

It's a tribute to the producers that most of the comedians chosen for this show continue to perform. This HBO special shows the comedians as they are just beginning to get national attention. Most became very big, while only two went into relative obscurity. Jerry Seinfeld is the most polished. Harry Anderson, Richard Lewis, and Howie Mandel are obviously in their early development but show the promise of future talent. The overall pace of many of the performances is much slower than that of today. The Smothers Brothers steal the show with their long opening bit on transcontinental railroad workers facing the "pumas in the crevasses". They also have great bits between acts. This show is great for fans of Tom and Dick Smothers, and those who want to see the early work of Jerry Seinfeld. It is great fun to see these performers so early in their careers.
