Needs to be on DVD
25 July 2008 | by jwpeel-1See all my reviews

I am glad someone remembers Will Jordan's participation in this underrated show. Ever since I saw Vaughn Meader do his JFK impression, I have wanted to do impressions. People like Gorshin, Little and some lesser known impressionists like Guy Marks made it an amazing art form. Many have noted that Marilyn Michaels was the only female doing it, but Debbie Reynolds also did some incredibly good impressions like her standout Mae West and Zsa Zsa Gabor (before there was a Paris Hilton there was this crazy Hungarian "actress," and I use the term loosely, who was in the Hilton family and the source of a lot of press attention. The irony of it was that when I was in high school I talked to friends a lot about how great it would be to have a show with people doing this very kind of show. The entertainment gods must have heard my pleas. Let us hope that they will listen again and bring this to DVD.
