Live TV
Robert G. Sanderhoff | Omaha, NE United States | 08/22/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great DVD. The skits are from start to finish, not just a few seconds. When you see the list of writers from this show, you will be shocked. This was real TV, not reality TV."
Funny old time TV
Raymond Melancon | Buffalo,NY | 01/06/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great show for the older people who remember those old Sid Caesar comedies and a blast for the younger generations of viewers. The satire of Ralph Edwards' "This is Your Life" was one of the funniest skits ever."

Very Funny Stuff
Shatzi Crabtree | NC | 02/15/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"We watched this whole set on the weekend, and laughed and laughed. I'm not old enough to remember these shows when they were on but we love glorious black and white. There are interviews and comments by writers and stars like Woody Allen too. One skit involved Nanette Fabray singing an opera while Sid was supposed to be a straight man but things kept going wrong. At one point his false moustache gets tangled in her hair and he puts it back on upside down. We hear from Fabray that this was unplanned, and the incredulous look on her face when she sees the upside down 'stache was real. There are some line blunders too, which we love. This was live TV after all. You'll also like the hyper little Howard "Ernest T Bass" Morris in the sketches."
