Ha! Forgot about this one.
Damn, I miss those guys...
I haven't seen that in years,very funny. Rockin' Mel Slirrup had a great show too.
M_Sharp,I watched about two hours of SCTV on Saturday and saw the Mel Slirrup skit. The hardest I laughed in the two hours was Joe Flaherty's name, as one of the Slirrup dancers---Hadji DeRobertis.
Jesus. It's not enough that I have to visit this goddamn site every day to see the music talk. Now you're posting stuff from the greatest comedy skit show of all time, to boot. Sammy Maudlin, Perini Scleroso, Perry Como prostrate on stage, Tim Ishimura interviewing Grogan, Mayor Tommy Shanks....too much, and not enough.C in California
Love SCTV, what an amazing cast. One of the funniest shows ever. The cast were all great, but for some reason anything Joe Flaherty did always made me laugh uncontrollably. Big Jim McBob, Hugh Betcha, Count Floyd...man those were some great characters. Thanks for the Monday laugh, Sal.
Tim Ishimuni: "Grogan don't crush me!"
HA! Brilliant! Thanks...
That show was hilarious, every character was great! I remember they'd always have the musical guest in a skit. I'm pretty sure Carl Perkins was on the Fishin' Musician, which was supposed to be an outdoorsy type show, and they went antique hunting. Dr. John was in Johnny LaRue's Polynesiantown, a takeoff on Chinatown. I fell asleep, I still don't know how it ended. I should probably check YouTube.This was a great Mel's Rock Pile skit, I think the intro was- Mel: "Hey, do you kids like punk music?" Kids: "NO!" "No, I hate punk music!"Mel: "Well that's too bad, today's guest is that great new band from England, The Queen Haters!"And here they are: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3kX2bHP-uQ
Very very good. Being from the west coast I have no idea what anyone is referring to.
Um....I'm California-born, -raised and -living my whole life, and the state's borders never stopped SCTV from blessing our airwaves. Nor The Goodies (odd English show from the '70s) or The Paul Hogan Show (early '70s-early '80s) or Benny Hill, all shows that cracked me up as a young'un.C in California
