Since his death late last year I've been watching clips from the Soupy Sales Show. The picture quality is not great, and the sets are homemade, but you could make a pretty funny video with a single stationary camera and a fellow in front of it who had a lot of personality. In a way his are the forebears for Saturday Night Live's videos.
I like "Fang's Talent Agency," a still from which below, but there loads of others.
These days with a laptop and a two hundred dollar Flip video camera, most everyone has better tools than he and his cohorts had.
Watch Soupy and Fang HERE.
