Yeah, but your last name is in the front half of the phone book, so you’d have already heard her say it by intermission.
That show resulted in a PBS Nova special I had on tape as a kid and watched many times. She does Trudy and Ernestine in the show, so it’s even more fun.
My last name starts with an M, so right before intermission.
There are some one-woman shows I HAVE enjoyed, but Gypsy’s show in this episode really takes the cake in terms of comedy.
Closest I’ve ever come to watching a one woman show is recordings of one Carol Burnett did, one Gilda Radner did and a PBS behind the scenes special of Elaine Stritch’s show “At Liberty”.
ABSOLUTELY. It’s one my FAVORITE host segments ever.
Revived my pre-Thanksgiving tradition of watching this episode.
Appropriately enough the temperature dropped from 68 to 36 degrees F today.
The experiment and the short remain golden. From the running gag that Joel thinks the Bots are going “too dark” in Circus (only to indulge in a few morbid quips himself) to the hero’s Failing becoming a massive production number in TDTEF I laughed long and hard.
The skits get funnier each time I see them. Forgot Tom and Crow disguised themselves as bags and never tire of Gypsy’s One Woman Show.
A classic. One of my comfort episodes.
Re-watching this one and thinking of the alarming number of times the family photo bit opener has been quoted in our house over the years.
“YOU CANT _______ WITHOUT YOUR NICE PANTS ON!!!”
“OH, MY HAIR!!”
