The Danny Kaye Show

Show Summary

The Danny Kaye Show hosted by song-and-dance man Danny Kaye an entertaining hour of weekly shows full of sketches, songs, dances and always filled with surprises. Whether he was pantomiming, singing, dancing, acting, playing instruments, it made for a wonderfully fun hour. His regulars included the marvelous Harvey Korman and Joyce Jameson. The Johnny Mann Singers were on for the first season only and then The Earl Brown Singers appeared throughout the remainder of the series. Tony Charmoli and his Dancers and the Paul Weston Orchestra rounded out the regulars. In its first season, The Danny Kaye Show garnered three EMMY awards, including one for the show and one for its star. That same season, the series also received a George Foster Peabody Award as one of the best entertainment programs for the year. During the series' four-year run, it accumulated a total of six EMMY nominations. Produced by Perry Lafferty and written by Larry Gelbart and Mel Tolkin, the series was a wonderful musical revue, highly entertaining.moreless

  • A comedy skit-variety programme in the standard format of the day, tailored to Kaye's good-natured talents.

    5.6
    As most did most comedians of mid-century, Danny Kaye went from movies to radio to television. Danny seemed to come rather late to the tube though, 1963 being years after the genre was pioneered by Red Skelton and Jackie Gleason. Danny's style of humor is anything but edgy. He offered super safe bits of business, his trade mark high speed, intricate dialect songs and eccentric dancing are showcased. He does have an unfortunate tendancy to slip into a talkative five-year old boy personna, which he must have thought was adorable but gets sickening fast. He had lots of big-name guests over the years, everyone from Lucille Ball to Fred Gwynne/Herman Munster. Though it was on late on Wednesdays, it didn't mean the programme had any mature content, it only meant there wasn't going to be any playing to kids with rock and roll personalities. They make fun of R&R, prefering 60's styled versions of pre-1940 tunes and current grown-up music.In the end it left little impression, and Danny's legacy is still described almost entirely in terms of his film work.moreless
