Two-Minute Nostalgia Sublime: Your Show of Shows

Okay, this is a Nine Minute Nostalgia Sublime, but I figure that Imogene Coca, Sid Caeser, Carl Reiner, and Howard Morris deserve at least 2 minutes each.

Your Show of Shows (1950-54). This clip is part 2 of "From Here to Obscurity", their send-up of From Here to Eternity.

Reiner: Listen to me Frankie boy: I'm bidin' my time, 'cause that's the kind of guy...I'm!
Part 1 is here. I embedded part 2 instead of part 1 because Coca is so hilarious, and she's not in part 1. I love how she has to turn away from the audience at 5:34 and 6:39 because she's cracking up so hard due to the buckets of water thrown at her and "Montgomery Bugle". This stuff is really square, but it's the best of its kind. And let's face it, From Here to Eternity richly deserved this send-up.
