John Candy as Orson Welles on the Billy Crystal Comedy Hour

The Billy Crystal Comedy Hour was a short lived series that ran on Saturday nights in the 10pm time slot back in 1982. I have only seen clips of it and it looked pretty funny, so I am not sure why it didn’t get more episodes. Maybe it was supposed to be short lived?

Well, whatever the reason, it was canceled even though it could be funny. It is worth tracking down if you have the chance for great pieces like this one with John Candy doing his Orson Welles impression.
