Bizarre (Series) (1980-1985)

Bizarre
Bizarre is the title of this series because bizarre is the word for it- not to mention its star, John Byner, who charges full tilt through a weekly half-hour of sketches, one-liners and blackouts on a host of bizarre subjects. They include Allan Blye and Bob Einstein, a Phil Donahue-type interview with the world's first trisexual; the Godfather's presidential campaign; a visit with Ronald Reagan's parents; a fantasy so far out that even Fantasy Island can't make it come true; San Francisco's first Straight Parade; a Westerner and his mail-order bride; how censors make bad into worse; locker-room pep talks; football's toughest training camp; and a do-it-yourself men's room.
