Sight gags, one-liners, and skits were packed into this
frantic summer comedy show, which was on and off the schedule faster than one of
John Moschitta's motor-mouthed monologues. Moschitta was know at the time
for his incredibly fast-talking commercials. Routines on the premiere included
"Bonan the Barbarian," "Jennifer Holiday-In," and "In Search of the Ridiculous."
Besides the repertory company of comics, there was an assortment of guest stars including Henny Youngman
- who must have felt right at home, since he had practically invented the TV
one-liner years before.
