Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Taped just three years before his death, this 90-minute tribute effectively encompasses the career of television's original renaissance man. The comedian-singer-songwriter-Tonight Show-creator was first and foremost a funnyman, as a series of vintage clips attest. Whether joking around on stage with his comedian mother, using a hidden camera to catch an innocent bystander scratching indelicately, or allowing himself to be smeared with dog food moments before several canines joined him on stage, Allen was game. Politically Incorrect's Bill Maher hosts this celebration before a live audience, chatting with Allen and his wife Jayne Meadows in between Allen's musical performances with his band, including the self-composed "South Rampart Street Parade." Taped tributes from sources as varied as Ted Koppel and Milton Berle round out this acknowledgment of an influential television career. --Kimberly Heinrichs

WHAT CAN I SAY--STEVE ALLEN IS BRILLIANT AND HIS SHOWS WILL ALWAYS BE ICONIC. HE WAS A GENIOUS AS AN ENTERTAINER AND AS AN AUTHOR. MY MOM WAS ON ONE OF HIS SHOWS IN 1958. WE COULDN'T IND IT ON HERE THOUGH.
