This original work by 1812 Productions was inspired by the Sid Ceasar television program “Your Show of Shows,” which aired in the early days of broadcasting. Presented in repertory with “Laughter on the 23rd Floor,” based on Neil Simon’s experience in the writer’s room of said program, 1812 set out to make an homage to Mr. Ceasar and the rules he used to create comedy in the 1950′s.
Below is an excerpt from a skit entitled “You Can’t Get There,” a comedic battle of space and will.
You Can’t Get There
This little song went under the “opening credits” for a movie parody called “The Painter,” sort of a combination between Crazy Heart and Pollock.
