Description:

Before his untimely death at the age of 42, television pioneer Ernie Kovacs left us with a sublime body of comedy work whose influence can be seen on everything from Monty Python to SNL and David Letterman. He made eight TV specials for ABC in 1961, the final year of his life, and they show Kovacs at the peak of his creative experimentation with the medium, featuring many of his comic masterpieces and iconic set pieces. Five of these programs are presented here in complete uncut form, along with many of his celebrated - and delightfully offbeat - commercials for Dutch Masters cigars. "Ernie Kovacs was, to me, the first to look directly into my face, through the camera, and make me laugh at television itself." - Chevy Chase
