The Delo and Daly Show

Show Summary

The Delo and Daly Show is a classic comedy-variety TV series from Down Under that resembles the Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis radio show from the early 50s. American singer Ken Delo teams up with comedian Jonathan Daly for an hour of song, dance and sketch comedy. Filmed in black-and-white, Delo and Daly start every show with a monologue, where Daly always seems to get mocked. Combining fast one-liners with slapstick antics, the hosts entertain a live studio audience. Composer Arthur Young serves as musical director of every show, and each episode contains live musical performances to Aussie and international popular music, including "When You and I Were Young," "When the Red Red Robin" and "Thank Heaven For Little Girls." Throughout the season, Delo and Daly invite international celebrities to stop by for some laughs. Gregory Peck plays a confused cowboy in one episode. Dick Van Dyke appears in another, giving Daly some speech lesson, but things don't go well after the naive host has a bit too many drinks before the show.
