Storyline

The comedy segment is questions for the audience to see if they could be impartial jurors in the trial of captured Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega. Michael Landon comes out wearing a tuxedo, and jokes that he thought his movie's title referred to penguins rather than pigeons; he says his wife told him not to embarrass her by wearing sloppy clothes. He recalls his start in TV in the late 1950s, and also talks about touring with Jerry Lee Lewis, when he would perform "Gimme a Little Kiss (Will Ya Huh)". He then talks about taking time off after having done series for thirty years, and taking a family trip to Tahiti and Hawaii. He talks about writing and directing the TV movie "Where Pigeons Go to Die" and working with Art Carney; a clip is shown. Jimmy Brogan does a stand-up comedy routine. Roger Rees talks about joining the cast of "Cheers" and doing Shakespeare in London. A clip from "Cheers" is shown. Written by lenab9011
