I’m so glad my Dad had his priorities straight.
Since I seem to be lost in the fifties lately, here are some vintage clips of a few sketches from Your Show of Shows, that wonderful program with Sid Caesar, Imogene Coca, Carl Reiner (the creator of The Dick Van Dyke Show and co-creator (along with his wife, Estelle, the
Older Woman Customer in When Harry Met Sally who uttered the line, “I’ll have what she’s having,”) of
“This Is Your Story” (10:56) (a spoof of This Is Your Life)
“The 1812 Overture” (1:11)
“The Clock” (7:11)
“The 3 Haircuts” (5:33)
If you’re not old enough to remember this loony gang that came into our homes every Saturday night for 90 minutes, you missed a lot of happy times.
