    I just thought of this show and was wondering if anyone else liked this show?

    SuperDave was awesome when he was on Bizarre(I'm sure that was what is was called) but when he had his own show, it was just too much(IMHO).

    Yup, I liked the "Super Dave" cable series quite a bit back in the day, and even going back before that to the John Byner series "Bizarre" where the character was born. Too bad the feature film from a couple years ago was so dreadful.
    Super Dave Osborne is Bob Einstein, brother of Albert Brooks. He's only appeared in one of Albert's films, but it's a very funny cameo in Modern Romance as a sporting goods clerk who sells him Running attire and accessories ("Step away from the box"). Their father was comedian Harry Parke, who worked as Parkyakarkus in the '40s and '50s. He infamously died on stage - literally, on the dais at a Friar's Club Roast in 1958.

    He does have a movie out on dvd: "The Extreme Adventures of Super Dave." I didn't think it was that bad but I think is tv show was funnier. I would do anything for the chance to see those shows again.

    He was actually on Politically Incorrect recently discussing the merits of MTV's Jackass. He is a very interesting guy. More intelligent than his persona. His viewpoint is that he never did anything that anyone should think they can do, whereas the Jackass people are constantly pursuing "possible stunts".
    Perhaps it's time for a comeback.

    Man, talk about synchronicity. I was just trying to convince some friends that a) SuperDave was real and b) was funny. They kind of remembered "a" but not enough to admit "b." Oh, well. I remember and loved his stuff. I didn't see his show as I liked his small bits on other shows. Didn't he go on Dave Letterman every once and a while? The first time I saw his stuff, he totally sold me on the "this is serious stuff" and when I saw his stunt dummy take it on the chin, I giggled and tittered.
