Subject: 80's comedians

Written By: MamaMonstr on 12/15/02 at 08:56 a.m.

the 80's were famous for all the comedians that came out of the woodwork.  i know people all know the biggies, but are there any out there that found a particular comedian funny in the 80's?  possibly a lesser known person?  i ask because of 2 reasons...

1.  there was a comedy special on showtime called "The Triple Clown of Comedy" hosted by Pat Morita.  2 of the 3 comedians were larry miller and mark mccollum (sp?).  the 1st guy was hawaiian but i can't remember his name.  this was one of the funniest comedy shows i ever saw that was tame enough for my family to watch...lol.  just looking to see if anyone else remembers it or where i can find it.

2.  one funny thing i found when the "Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire" thing came on.  as the show progresses and the millionaire-groom-to-be was cast in shadow, everyone wondered what he would look like, etc.  when he was revealed i laughed my head off to find out it was Rik Rockwell.  they said he was a small business owner and wealthy, etc...i have a tape of him as a comedian on a small benefit show doing his stand up routine from some time in the 80's.  did anyone else see this by any chance???

well thanks for letting me ramble on.  have a great day.    ;)

Those were the days. The stand-up comedians of the mid 80's-early 90's. Did anyone ever see the show "Comedy Tonight"? It was a syndicated 30-minute show that ran Mon.-Fri. from, I think, 1985-87. Each episode had 3 stand-up comedians. My favorite one of those was Dennis Blair. He did parodies of 60's songs and made jokes about 60's singers.

I liked any and all comedians who could pull-off an excellent impersonation of each of the members of the crew from "Star Trek" (classic, of course), especially "Captain Kirk", "Spock", and "Scotty".  ;D
