    it is thanks to this remarkable woman that we have the work of Ernie Kovacs to enjoy. Kovacs was a true television pioneer and an amazing artist. his body of work is still as fresh and funny as it was fifty years ago. Edie Adams saved recordings of his show from being destroyed, and I thank her for this. she was a talented singer and actress and a real beauty. theirs was a real love affair. I hope they are reunited at last.

    ‘It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World’ is my favorite movie of all-time.

    I’ll watch it tonight in her memory.

    Can’t underestimate the whole Ernie Kovacs factor; an increasingly unrecognized influence on television comedy. And, oh yeah, he was very very funny.

    Did MST3K ever do any Percy Dovetonsils riffs? I forget.

    Plus, Edie Adams also occasionally wore one of the gorilla suits in the Nairobi Trio bits. Professor Bobo influence, anyone?
