NATIONAL LAMPOON RADIO HOUR, THE {REBROADCAST} (RADIO)

Summary

One in this series of hyperkinetic comedy programs comprised of dozens of fast paced sketches and song parodies. Skits include: a demonstration of how the directors of the show can control what you listen to by pulling all sorts of tricks; a movie star's boasts about the way she looks; a message from God, who explains why bad things happen to people while he is watching; an interview with someone who claims to be the smartest man on the planet because he has memorized the New York City telephone directory; the megaphone newsreel's trip to Rio De Janeiro; a spoof in which Albert Einstein figures out what "E=MC2" means while he is leaving his house to go to work; great jokes in history; a segment called "Robbery of the Air," in which experts explain how to stop people from changing stations so often; a demonstration of Nagasaki, the art of Chinese bottle arrangement; and, at the close of the show, a public service announcement of what to do if there is any sort of nuclear bomb threat. Includes commercials.
