The Bill Dana Show

Show Summary

BILL DANA, comedian/writer, created a character called JOSE JIMENEZ for the STEVE ALLEN SHOW. This led to a series of successful records and nightclub appearances. BILL's character, JOSE JIMENEZ, is a Mexican immigrant who works as a bellhop at the PARK CENTRAL HOTEL. He had a bachelor room there and ate in the hotel kitchen. He was portrayed as somewhat naive, yet he tried to find the good in people. His fellow bellhop, EDDIE (GARY CROSBY), kept trying to wise him up. The hotel manager, MR. PHILLIPS (JONATHAN HARRIS), was not too understanding towards JOSE. Not-so-bright hotel detective, BYRON GLICK (DON ADAMS) didn't help matters either. FIRST SEASON: September 1963-September 1964 (including reruns) 1964 NBC Sunday 7:00 pm-7:30 pm SECOND SEASON: September 1964-January 1965 NBC Sunday 8:30 pm-9:00 pm

  • The Bill Dana Show is a Classic for the Don Adam's episodes!

    8.0
    I give the Show an 8 6.5 for the 30 episodes without Don Adams but a 9.5 for the 12 episodes Don Adams is in.Too Bad he wasn't on the show every week because Bill Dana and Don made a great comedy team.I own 30 episodes from the VHS collection and hope that someday the complete show is out on Dvd.
