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.

For more than twelve years, James Lipton has sat down with over 200 of the world's most accomplished artists - ranging from actors and directors to musicians and comedians - for penetrating, fascinating interviews. Lipton's studious research and enlightened curiosity has inspired his guests to open up and confess their deepest thoughts about their craft since the series premiere in 1994. Inside The Actors Studio has earned a reputation of being a forum where guests can speak fearlessly, openly and honestly about the things that matter most to them: their craft and the crucial events of their lives and careers. The series is seen in 80 million homes on the Bravo cable network and has received 12 consecutive Emmy nominations including this year's nod for Outstanding Nonfiction Series. This set features some of the most popular actors in Hollywood and includes the interview with Barbra Streisand that broke records for the series drawing 1.14 million viewers. Four episodes including: Clint Eastwood (2003) Paul Newman (1994) Robert Redford (2004) Barbra Streisand (2003) SPECIAL FEATURES: "James Lipton: Flashbacks" (new introductions with James Lipton) "Great Moments That Didn't Make The Cut" (previously unseen portions of the original interviews) Since its debut in 1994, Inside the Actors Studio has become an institution of artistic inquiry as vitally important as the legendary subjects of its interviews. In presenting in-depth interviews with Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Barbra Streisand, and Clint Eastwood, this three-disc set of Icons is not just the inaugural ITAS release on DVD, but a shining example of the show's consistent excellence as a cultural touchstone. As Dean Emeritus of the prestigious Actors Studio Drama School (where Lee Strasberg and others once taught such future stars as Newman, James Dean, and Marlon Brando), series host James Lipton brings his own passion for acting to a forum that is both reverently devoted to craft (with minimal discussion of politics and a refreshing avoidance of gossip) and ...

Relive the memories from 30 years of The Tonight Show in this 3 DVD collection of the most hilarious moments with the biggest stars in television history. All of your old Tonight Show favorites are here - Johnny's monologue, wildlife handler Jim Fowler, the extraordinary talents of ordinary people, Carnac the Magnificent, sports heroes, and stand-up comics. See early performances from some of today's most popular comedians including Drew Carey, Garry Shandling, and the debut performance of Ellen DeGeneres. Features the famous lost episode Return to Studio One. The stuff of showbiz legend, this famous "lost" episode of The Tonight Show (most of the tapes from the first 10 years of The Tonight Show were accidentally erased) defines the essence of live television. It is a kind of magic that can't be rehearsed, recycled, or reproduced, but thanks to this recent discovery, we can now return to Studio One to witness Johnny and his guests working witout a net. Originally recorded on two-inch videotape, the show was later transferred to film for broadcast on the Armed Forces Network. It was this film version that was eventually tracked down and identified among 10,000 Tonight Show tapes 54 stories underground in a working salt mine somewhere in the middle of Kansas. This show has not been seen since its original broadcast on March 6, 1969. This classic episode is considered by many as one of the most hilarious in TV history. In March of 1969, Carson took the show on the road from its home in New York to Burbank, California. On this particular night, Johnny and his guests had no idea what was in store for them when Bob Hope and Dean Martin decided to drop in announced, and stole the show. The spontaneous and unrehearsed antics that followed are now a part of show business history. Any fan of Johnny Carson will certainly have their own idea of what constitutes his best stuff. With over 30 years of material from the king of late-night TV to cull through, any collection is bound to be missing something. Whether or not yo...

She's no ordinary star, she's a megastar! Larger than life and brimming with wit and hilarity, she's Dame Edna Everage! And she's inviting you to explore all her nooks and crannies in The Dame Edna Experience. Available for the first time ever, this series of six variety/chat shows (or, as Dame Edna calls them, "monologues interrupted by total strangers") is guaranteed to keep you in stitches. Celebrity guests (foils for Dame Edna's rapier wit) include Sean Connery, Charlton Heston, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Jane Seymour, Larry Hagman, Rudolf Nureyev and Joan Rivers! DVD Features:Featurette:The BAFTA-winning program An Audience with Dame Edna Everage Ester: Dame Edna Everage, a 30 minute talk show from the U.K. in which Dame Edna 'bares all' so to speak. Interviews:Two interviews with Dame Edna creator Barry Humphries, one of which is conducted by Dame Edna herself! Music Clips:Dame Edna performs her theme song "Niceness" Other:Exclusive Dame Edna introduction PLUS the Madge button! Dame Edna Everage--an Australian housewife turned megastar in her own mind--is possibly the most entertaining person alive. Of couse, she's not actually a real person; she's the alter-ego of comic genius Barry Humphries, the cocoon from which Edna bursts out like a radiant butterfly. Her 1980s talk show, The Dame Edna Experience, proves an ideal format to wallow in her splendor. Though the hairstyles and fashion choices of her guests may have dated--Jane Seymour looks like a meringue pastry topped with shaved cinnamon--Edna's dazzling egomania and Humphries's wicked, sure-footed wit are amazingly fresh. Whether she's wheedling sex tips out of Zsa Zsa Gabor, flirting with Charlton Heston, trading fashion tips with Jerry Hall, singing a duet with Cliff Richard, practically yawning in Sean Connery's face, or simply reveling in her own marvelousness, Dame Edna will charm your pants off. On top of the talk show, there's a short interview that Dame Edna does with Barry Humphries himself (spooky!) and a TV special in which Dame Edna take...

Two hilarious programs from the outrageous megastar, Dame Edna Everage! First it's The Dame Edna Christmas Experience featuring celebrity guests Roger Moore, Lulu and Australian Cultural Attache Sir Les Patterson! And if that isn't enough, viewers are also invited to Mount Edna for A Night on Mount Edna, a hilarious visit to Dame Edna's Swiss chalet, featuring Gina Lollobrigida, Charlton Heston, Julio Iglesias and a chat with Mel Gibson in Dame Edna's sauna! Plus Dame Edna's Christmas Message to the Commonwealth! Christmas will never be the same! What more could one want under one's Christmas tree than Dame Edna Everage? The glorious alter-ego of Australian comic Barry Humphries sparkles in two Christmas specials, Dame Edna's Christmas Experience from 1987 and A Night on Mount Edna from 1990. Watching Dame Edna discuss skiing and valium with Gina Lollobridgida or interviewing Mel Gibson in her personal sauna--it's a cornucopia of daffy narcissism and off-the-wall double entendres. Charlton Heston appears as Dame Edna's houseboy, running to and from the kitchen, finally spilling cheese fondue in Julio Iglesias's lap. This is, as ever, the most giddy and surreal talk show of all time. But for sheer comic genius, it's one of the special features that really pays off: One More Audience with Dame Edna Everage is just Edna herself, alone on stage, breezily spinning out crazed and hilarious responses to audience questions. --Bret Fetzer
