The Abbott and Costello Show on Blu-ray
Original Airdates: Nov. 11-14, 2022
TVC 596.3: Nick Santa Maria joins Greg Ehrbar for a look at the recently restored Blu-ray release of The Abbott and Costello Show: Season One, the season that, among other things, featured Joe Besser as Stinky, the man-child who often got the best of Costello. Topics this segment include how the rhythm of The Abbott and Costello Show, in many respects, inspired Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David many years later when they developed Seinfeld.
Nick Santa Maria is the co-author of The Annotated Abbott and Costello: A Complete Viewer’s Guide to the Comedy Team and Their 38 Films, a new book that becomes available in December from McFarland Books.
