Van Dyke and Company

Show Summary

After the success of his 2 sitcoms, The Dick Van Dyke Show and The New Dick Van Dyke Show, comedian Dick Van Dyke, just like many others, decided to try his hand at a variety show. Titled Van Dyke and Company, it premiered in September 1976. It featured Dick Van Dyke standing in front of several doors, one of which a guest star would come out of. The show was best known for Dick's pantomime acting and a recurring skit about the dumbest family in the world, coincidently named "The Bright Family". Van Dyke & Co also featured appearances by the Los Angeles Mime Company. However, the show, like many other variety shows at the time, was cancelled rather quickly. Dick Van Dyke would later create a new sitcom, The Van Dyke Show.
