Comedy (Theater) Tonight! :)


Here's an incredibly rare snippet of Jack Kelly previewing a segment of The NBC Comedy Theater, the summer replacement series he hosted in the early 1970's while he was also emceeing Sale of the Century:

The NBC Comedy Theater consisted of lighter episodes recycled from the Bob Hope Presents The Chrysler Theatre anthology show which ran years earlier on NBC. Comedy Theater premiered at 8:00 pm on June 7, 1971, and replaced Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In for the summer. As host, JK provided new intros and outros for the previously aired Chrysler Theatre productions. Comedy Theater also subbed in 1972 for Emergency!, which debuted in mid-season and didn't have enough original episodes which could be rerun throughout the summer.

Enjoy! :)
