It was here "real" face.

As all legends, her comedy is still funny today and "That Show" itself is very interesting - with single-topic shows and a content expert and a celebrity on the panel.

To be honest, I didn't stick with it but doubt my opinion would've changed if I had.

This DVD, along with volume 2, is a true treasure for any Joan Rivers fan and I'm thrilled that Amazon has them!! How great it is to see Joan in 1968 when her incredible career was just getting started. As all legends, her comedy is still funny today and "That Show" itself is very interesting - with single-topic shows and a content expert and a celebrity on the panel. Joan is charming, funny, smart and endearing in each episode and it really is a gift to be able to see her as she was so long ago. I love Joan but it's sad to see what she has done to her face and these DVDs allow us to see her before all of the cosmetic interventions, when she was actually able to show expressions. I absolutely recommend these DVDs to all of Joan's fans or anyone who's interested in a great time-capsule from the late '60s. As always, I'm grateful to Amazon for having such a great product!

Not as funny or amusing as I thought it might be. To be honest, I didn't stick with it but doubt my opinion would've changed if I had.

Funny, classic Joan ... jokes still play well today. Laughs, chuckles, truth, and ah ha's. You've gotta see it.

In 1968 after Joan Rivers was told by Johnny Carson on "The Tonight Show" that she was going to be a star Joan began her own talk show that aired in syndication. "That Show with Joan Rivers" aired on most NBC stations beginning in the fall of 1968 at 9:30 am weekdays and was a certified hit. The thirty minute chatfest always dealt with a certain topic that Joan and her guest of that particular episode would discuss. The topics delt with everything from men's fashions to plastic surgery and Joan showed the audience how funny and intelligent she really was.

Although the program lasted one season due to Joan being overworked from doing both the series and her standup performances at night "That Show" is really a wonderful time capsule of the late sixties and the fact that the shows themselves exist is really a miracle as most NBC daytime shows were completely destroyed after their first airing.

In this first volume six episodes are included along with the pilot that featured Johnny Carson. Other guests include Soupy Sales and Jerry Lewis, Joan's least favorite guest as he was rude and arrogant and half way through the interview he looked at his watch and told Joan he had to leave.

There are two other volumes of "That Show" available individually and the entire first three volumes are housed in a special collector's edition with all 18 episodes. Unfortunately, there are no bonus features.

Some interesting guests and topics discussed with a 1960's perspective!
