The King of All Media, Howard Stern, squares off in a tennis match against his monkey-faced producer, Gary Dell'Abate, in the Main Event of this raunchy variety show romp in front of a sold out Nassau Coliseum.
a buddy of mine bought all 5 pilots on ebay a couple of years back and i got a chance to watch them.the shows known as the fox pilots could have been put together better but it was still a watchable show.if you are a super fan of the stern show you will dig them.they reminded me of the negligee underpants party VHS that stern put out around the same time.kinda boring at times but watchable the things that stuck out the most were the opening with Jackie and Fred and Leslie West as the band leader amazing house band.some of the bits were funny and the guest were great but definitely tamed down compared to the radio show or the channel 9 show a few years later.if i remember correctly they taped them in may of 1987.after watching them you can understand why fox didn't air them the show just wasn't that funny and being a late night talk show people like Letterman and Carson would have crushed the show with their own ratings.i don't think the stern show was ready yet. its good to see stern so early in his career,if you can still find them on ebay and your a super fan its worth a watch
