Mike Douglas - Moments & Memories
Manufacturer: Standing Room Only Brand: Kulter
- Before there was Oprah or Dr. Phil or Ellen, or any of these people, there was Mike Douglas.- - Jay Leno, remembering Mike Douglas on The Tonight Show Legendary daytime talk show host Mike Douglas influenced many of today's biggest stars, including Barbara Walters, Jay Leno, Regis Philbin, and Rosie O'Donnell, among many others. He ruled daytime talk from 1961 to 1982, reaching as many as 15 million people with a single show and averaging an astounding seven million viewers a day. MOMENTS AND MEMORIES takes a look back at Douglas' tenure as talk-show-host extraordinaire. The program unlocks a plethora of amazing performances and interviews from the show's vaults, including Tiger Woods' first appearance on television and Marlon Brando's personal commentary on his role as The Godfather. Douglas' charming disposition drew in the viewers while also setting his high-profile guests at ease. Almost every major celebrity who hit it big in the 60s and 70s appeared on the show either as a guest or co-host. John Lennon and Yoko Ono co-hosted the program for a week in 1972, producing several poignant and memorable moments such as the duo's live performance of Imagine and their collaboration with Chuck Berry on the rock n roll classic Johnny B. Goode. A 2- year-old Tiger Woods also charmed the crowds like a seasoned performer, showcasing his early talent for golf while unknowingly matching wits with comedic heavyweight Bob Hope. Priceless moments like these captured the hearts and im...
Bill Maher - New Rules
Manufacturer: HBO Studios Brand: MAHER,BILL Model: 2221357
Bill Maher: New Rules (DVD)Collected from one of the most popular segments of the acclaimed HBO Original Series Real Time with Bill Maher, New Rules takes steady aim at well, just about everything in sight, bringing in the hosts incisive wit and hilarious asides. Bill Maher: New Rules brings these cleverly conceived barbs to DVD for the first time, along with some brilliant bonus feature editorials that you're unlikely to find in the pages of your local newspaper.]]> Bill Maher's New Rules plays like a "greatest hits" compilation that you don't want to end. Compiled from the most popular segment of the HBO original series Real Time with Bill Maher, it's a fitting showcase for Maher's take-no-prisoners approach to political humor, in which the veteran comedian/pundit invents "new rules" in response to the insanity of current events, celebrity trivia, and the nonsensical irritants that pop up in the media on a regular basis. In collaboration with his gifted writing team, Maher delivers a constant barrage of hilarious yet eminently sensible solutions to the foibles of modern society, from common sense ("no more cell phones in movie theaters!") to harmlessly risquÃ© ("lap dancing is a First Amendment right"), appropriately sarcastic ("the end of Friends is not a national tragedy!"), and just plain clever ("whenever they award an OscarÂ®, they should take one back"). Maher's flawless delivery of these "new rules" (culled from the first three seasons of Real Time) results in a ...
The Dick Cavett Show - Comic Legends
Manufacturer: Shout Factory Brand: GAIAM INTERNATIONAL
12 episodes featuring Woody Allen, Lucille Ball, Jack Benny, Carol Burnett , Mel Brooks, George Burns, Bill Cosby, Bob Hope, Jerry Lewis, Groucho Marx, and the Smothers Brothers. Bonus material includes new show introductions by Dick Cavett, new interviews with Dick Cavett, producer/director Bob Weide ("Curb Your Enthusiasm") and original Dick Cavett Show writer Tom Whedon ("Benson," "Alice"), classic footage of Dick Cavett doing his own stand-up routine on the Ed Sullivan Show, classic outtakes and alternate Show Opening, and classic, rare footage from Cavett's morning show. 840 minutes (that's fourteen hours, including various bonus features). Four discs. Twelve shows. Eleven famous guests. The Dick Cavett Show â€“ Comic Legends boasts some big numbers, but what it doesn't have, surprisingly, is a whole lotta laughs. The lineup is certainly impressive, from old school stalwarts like Groucho Marx, Bob Hope, Lucille Ball, Jack Benny, and George Burns to relative youngsters (at least at the time; the shows were recorded from the late '60s to the mid-'70s) like Bill Cosby, Woody Allen, and the Smothers Brothers. But this is not a procession of mirth-meisters coming out and doing five or ten minutes of one-liners and standup shtick. There are no performances, per se; like guests on Leno, Letterman, or any other TV talk show, the "legends" converse with and are interviewed by the host, sometimes by themselves, sometimes in the company of other celebs. This casual format y...

Knowing Me, Knowing You with Alan Partridge - The Complete Series
Manufacturer: BBC Video Brand: Warner Manufacturing
Knowing Me Knowing You..with Alan Partridge: The Complete Series (DVD)Alan Partridge is the hilariously unprofessional host of the cheesiest talk show imaginable. Self-absorbed and further handicapped with an ABBA fixation, Alan confronts an endless parade of C-list celebrities week after week with mounting frustration and antagonism. For anyone whoever lost the remote control during an inane talk show, Knowing Me Knowing You delivers the "Scen We'd Like to See." This two-disc DVD set includes all 6 episodes of the series, as well as Christmas Special "Knowing Me Knowing Yule."]]> Ah-ha! In 1995, Alan Partridge made the transition from radio to TV with Knowing Me, Knowing You, a talk show so wholly misunderstood that one TV critic described it as "moribund." By way of rebuttal, just consider Alan's parade of fantastic guests, including a hypnotist who persuades Alan that he's an owl; an American pop diva with whom Alan shares a memorable Abba duet that happens to be in all the wrong keys for him; raunchy male dance-act Hot Pants; Cirque des Clowns, whose extreme violence upsets Alan; and, most exciting of all, Roger Moore (via mobile phone from a traffic jam on the Chiswick roundabout). Steve Coogan's creation fell on hard times later, but here he's reveling in his primetime exposure with no thought of becoming "clinically sad" or gorging on Toblerone bars. Co-writers Armando Iannucci and Patrick Marber lovingly re-create everything that's fake and contrived about the whole ...
The Jack Paar Collection
Manufacturer: Shout Factory Brand: SHOUT FACTORY (UNDER GENIUS) Model: 2267304
The first host of The Tonight Show , as well as an actor, radio personality and star in his own right, Jack Paar was an early TV pioneer who brought Americans many of the century's most fascinating guests: President John F. Kennedy, Judy Garland, Bill Cosby, Woody Allen and other entertainers and public figures who graced his stage. 3 DVDs. 1957-1965/color-b&w/6 hrs., 40 min/NR/fullscreen. Jack Parr kept a low public profile after turning over the reigns of The Tonight Show to Johnny Carson in 1962. Thus, his passing in January 2004, did not receive nearly the attention it deserved. The Jack Paar Collection restores the legacy of the talk-show pioneer who brought the art of conversation to the barren landscape of late-night television. But, I kid you not, it is an indispensable time capsule that preserves appearances and performances by politicians, personalities, and entertainers who shaped the 20th century. And Robert Goulet, too. Disc 1 of this three-disc set is an appreciation of Paar that combines vintage clips with reminiscences and insights from the likes of Regis Philbin, Hugh Downs, who served as Paar's announcer, Dick Cavett, one of his writers, and the Smothers Brothers, who were among the legendary performers who made their earliest TV appearances on the Tonight Show stage (there are hilarious clips featuring Woody Allen, Bill Cosby, and, from 1964, Kermit the Frog, then just a tadpole in local television). As Paar demonstrated when he quit The Tonight Show afte...

The Kumars at No. 42
Manufacturer: BBC Home Entertainment Brand: Warner Manufacturing Model: E2388
Part scripted comedy, part improvisation, part genuine interview, The Kumars at No. 42 is like nothing you've ever seen. The Kumars - a "typical" Indian family living in the north of London - have hit upon a unique method of "Keeping Up with the Joneses"; they have bulldozed their backyard and erected a state-of-the-art TV studio, where they host their very own talk show. The son, Sanjeev, pops the questions while his mother (Madhuri), father (Ashwin) and mischievous granny (Sushila) interrupt from a nearby sofa with wildly inappropriate and irrelevant questions.
