To follow up on my recent report about the comic legend Ernie Kovacs, I received word today that Shout! Factory will be releasing the Kovacs’ TV specials that he did for ABC-TV as a separate DVD (these shows were part of the massive, and marvelous, 6-DVD box set that Shout! Factory released in 2011. This new DVD, to be released on April 17, will include 5 of the 8 specials that Kovacs did in 1961 (specials 4-8). As a bonus, the disc will have some of his classic Dutch Masters cigar commercials too.
If you can’t wait for this release, you can head to iTunes, where you can find the initial 10 offerings from the Best of Ernie Kovacs.
It’s always good to start your week with some laughter.
