"THE BEST OF THE DAVID STEINBERG SHOW"

6 COMPLETE EPISODES WITH SPECIAL GUESTS

Jon Voight • Adrienne Barbeau • Ethel Merman

Ruth Buzzi • Robert Vaughn • Michele Lee

The original backstage comedy that broke all the rules!

The funniest moments at "The David Steinberg Show" all took place behind the scenes. Each week Steinberg shared the stage with a different celebrity guest who was thrown into the show’s hilarious antics. Regular players included Martin Short as singer Johnny Del Bravo, John Candy as hippie musician Spider Reichman and Bill Saluga in dual roles as deli store owner Vinnie DeMilo and his confused cousin Raymond J. Johnson Jr. Rounding out the cast were SCTV stars (before they were stars) Joe Flaherty, Dave Thomas and Andrea Martin.

I love David Steinberg, remembering the years-ago comedy shows and routines he had. This is a small view of some of his show, and was fun to watch.

The David Steinberg Show is a variety show, with an unconventional format. The program ran for one season in 1976, producing 21 half hour episodes. David Steinberg is Canadian, and this program recorded in Toronto, features the early work of some comedians who later achieved some notoriety, including Martin Short, John Candy, Joe Flaherty, Dave Thomas, Trudy Young, and Andrea Martin. The show also features major contributions from Bill Saluga, as both an actor and writer. The name conscious Raymond J. Johnson, is Saluga's most famous comedic character.

Steinberg typically opens the show with a monologue, telling a few jokes. Often during the monologue, Steinberg will be interrupted, either by that week's guest star, or by the character Raymond J. Johnson. David then introduces singer Johnny del Bravo, played by Martin Short. Typically while Del Bravo is singing, David leaves the studio and heads over to the Hello Deli, a small diner run by Vinny DeMilo (Saluga). At the diner, David, Vinny, and the week's guest star(s) engage in some kind of comedy sketch. After this, the show usually switches back to the studio for some kind of performance featuring the guest star.

Steinberg's show has an unusual format, but unfortunately is seldom very funny. The many attempts to incorporate guests into the pet routines featuring Johnny del Bravo and the Hello Deli, are only occasionally successful. With so many supporting players, the focus is often so diffuse, that in some episodes the guest stars actually do very little. In general, the talents of the various guest stars are not showcased very well.

The good news is that this "best of" collection of six shows, does indeed feature some of the more memorable programs in the series.

I always liked David Steinberg when he was a guest on late night TV, long ago.
I had never seen "The David Steinberg Show" before. It's surprisingly very weak comedy.
I can't imagine anyone laughing very much at this stuff, today.
