The Sonny Comedy Revue Show

Show Summary

After "The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour" was canceled following the breakup of the marriage, Sonny Bono hosted his own variety show. The series should have worked better than it did, since Sonny brought with him the same writers, producers, and cast from previous show. They even carried over recurring comedy bits like "Sonny's Pizza" and the inept, oft-exploding French Foreign Legion. New segments included "The Newsstand," a variation on the Cher "Vamp" routine that allowed for quick jokes and sketches. In place of Cher, female guest stars came on and insulted Sonny for being short and/or untalented. Unfortunately, it just didn't work without Cher. The Revue lasted just 13 weeks.
