A double douse of nostalgic comedy TV


YOUR SHOW OF SHOWS -  Sid Caesar & Imogene Coca

Your Show of Shows was a live 90-minute sketch comedy television series appearing weekly in the United States on NBC, from 1950 until June 5, 1954, featuring Sid Caesar and Imogene Coca. Broadcast live it was one of the major early comedy shows of the early era of television and a classic today.
Writers for the show included Mel Brooks, Neil Simon, Danny Simon, Larry Gelbart, Mel Tolkin, and Carl Reiner who, though a cast member, always sat in with the writers. Carl Reiner has stated that the time he spent on Your Show of Shows was the inspiration for The Dick Van Dyke Show; Your Show of Shows also inspired the 1982 film My Favorite Year, produced by Mel Brooks, and the play Laughter on the 23rd Floor written by Neil Simon.
Most of the kinescopes of the show were discarded by NBC, and so few copies of the show survive. Reruns of surviving kinescopes aired on Comedy Central in the early 1990s.

THE SOUPY SALES SHOW

In the mid 50?s Soupy Sales starred in a noon time luncheon program for children at the WXYZ studios in Detroit. But the show was so funny featuring spontaneous ad libs, pie throwing, etc. that it actually soon became more popular with adults the kids. Due to the popularity of the show Soupy Sales moved to New York and California where it became an instant hit. One famous episode featured Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. & Trini Lopez in a wild pie throwing contest (which is part of this DVD).
