Bizarre has aged much more gracefully than one might expect.

Sure, it dates from a time when names like Bella Abzug, Henry Kissinger, Fred Silverman and Tom Snyder were punchlines in and of themselves (though barely, and more often because they simply sounded funny as punchlines), and sure, host/cast leader John Byner was probably given too many opportunities to run through a surprisingly limitd (for his talents) range of impersonations that had been serving him well since the Sullivan show in the 60's (Paul Lynde, Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, Marlon Brando, Ed Sullivan, Johnny Mathis and John Wayne to be precise, and usually in the form of "audition reel" sketches for famous movie and TV characters like The Godfather and Fantasy Island's Herve Villechaize), but having just transferred several season's worth of old Betamax tapes to DVD-r for safe keeping not long before this DVD series started appearing, I can safely say I still found myself chuckling at regular intervals despite knowing much of this material from heart. As such, this review DOES reference some of the sketches contained within this volume, as well as some that appear on other volumes, or not at all *yet")

The show's writers, directors and cast had a remarkable collective ability to spin old jokes into seemingly fresh full length sketches that would usually feature heavy padding via Byner's antics and asides.

This little gem was formerly shown on Showtime. Funny man John Byner served as both host and actor in this long-running series. The Best Of includes some of their funniest bits, including the Racist Family and Super Dave Osborne. Super Dave's segments are among the funniest in every episode they're shown, calling to mind the late, great Evel Knievel, perhaps on an off day. Bob Einstein is excellent as Super Dave, and as a series of foils and straight men for Byner and others to play off of.

Some of the humor is a bit dated, but thankfully most of the series wears very well. No special features to speak of, which is okay by me. A very small number of the sketches just "miss" somehow, but it's obvious the cast and crew were enjoying themselves, even in the event something wasn't quite working.

This show was syndicated for late night in the 80's. Most of the nudity was left in those episodes, but all of that is present in this collection. There are plenty of female breasts peeking out, regularly, with rear ends making the occasional appearance in a sketch. It's all in good fun, and similar in some ways to the Benny Hill Show, which I also really enjoy.

The Best of Bizarre is definitely for adults, but even if you don't get the small bits of topical humor, the rest of it is definitely worth the price of admission.

Description

10 Zany, uncut & uncensored episodes.

Cast members include sketch comedy genius Billy Van (The Hilarious House Of Frightenstein), Luba Goy (Royal Canadian Air Farce), and Saul Rubinek. While comedians Howie Mandel and Dave Thomas (SCTV), actors Pat Morita (Happy Days, The Karate Kid Films), and Dick Van Dyke and NFL football coach George Allen makes Guess appearances.

This is a show that was tape live, and the results often take the performers completely away from the written script into what many insiders consider the first unintentional forays into reality television. All this having been said... there's no simple word that sums up this incredible DVD collection: FUNNY! Oh... and here's the final word for you as you get ready to watch the DVD...ENJOY

Oh what memories. And it stands the test of time. It's every bit as funny now as it was back then. If you have not seen it before, give it a try. It's funnier than anything Saturday Night Live did. Just a true comedy masterpiece.
