    "The Joey Bishop Show" is always funny, from beginning to end. Unlike its parent series, "The Danny Thomas Show", it basically eschews morals and lectures and concentrates on laughs. In "Joey's Dramatic Debut", Joey is offered a part in a dramatic war picture. He plays a soldier who loses control, and gets slapped by his commanding officer. That's okay, he assures himself, they do all those things with camera tricks and such, so he won't really get slapped. Then when they shoot the scene, lo and behold, he gets slapped, for real. Wait a minute, he tells the director, he slapped me! I thought you use camera tricks! The director responds, yes, they could that, but he prefers realism. If Joey gets slapped in the script, he gets slapped in real life. So they shoot the scene over. And over. And over. By the time they're through, his cheek is so sore he can hardly eat. That's why the transistion from comedy to drama is so painful for poor Joey.moreless
