Fridays - Shout! Factory Announces a DVD Set for 'The Best of Fridays'


5-disc set includes appearances by KISS, Devo, and comic Andy Kaufman!

    "Live from the Los Angeles basin, it's Fridays!" For the first time ever on DVD, ABC's cult hit Fridays is here! Originally airing from 1980 to 1982, these sixteen episodes showcase the edgy and subversive sketch comedy that helped launch the careers of Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Michael Richards (Seinfeld), Melanie Chartoff (Parker Lewis Can't Lose) and more.

    Also featuring Mark Blankfield, Maryedith Burrell, Darrow Igus, Brandis Kemp, Bruce Mahler, and John Roarke, Fridays presented a hilariously twisted view of the early 80s to adventurous viewers on a weekly basis. Their outrageous characters - from the paranoid Drugs R Us Pharmacist to the rabbinical action heroes of Matzoi! to the laid-back Nat E. Dred, "The Rasta Gourmet" - left audiences laughing long into the wee hours of the night.

    With vintage musical performances (including Devo, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Cars, The Clash, KISS and more) as well as the show's infamous guest appearances by the legendary Andy Kaufman, Fridays proved that late-night live comedy wasn't just for Saturday night.
On August 6th, Shout! Factory will release The Best of Fridays, a 5-DVD set priced at $39.99 SRP. Why "the best of," instead of something more complete? Shout! hasn't said, but if we were to take a guess at it then we're sure it has a lot to do with all the music rights that would need to be cleared for a program like this. So don't take it too hard on the studio; instead be grateful that they were able to release any part of this show! Here's the cover art and a pre-order listing link:
