It’s Garry Shandling’s Show – tape 1600

Here’s more from It’s Garry Shandling’s Show, this time not on Bravo but on Sky One. Oh good, even more adverts.

The first episode is a repeat of the episode where Garry has a growth on his neck.

The next episode is the first episode to feature Jessica Harper.

Next is an episode we haven’t seen recently. Garry has to to a breakfast TV show. He makes some disparaging remarks about Phoebe, and she’s very cross.

Next, it’s another familiar episode, the one where Garry goes to dinner with old Vaudevillian Eddie King. This time I get to see the opening, which was completely missing from the previous recording, so that’s good.

The next episode explains one of the fragments of show that was on the previous tape. Grant Shumaker is upset because one of his friends tried to hack up his family after watching a TV show called Nathan’s Sheer Madness. Phoebe starts a protest, and Garry goes to see studio head Mr Stravely.

In the next episode, Garry travels to meet Phoebe’s family. During the flight there’s some impressive shots of the Grand Canyon.

And Garry proposes to Phoebe.

Next, Leonard find an old film of Garry’s – a porno movie. This jeopardises Garry’s radio show so he has to prove he’s not the one having sex.


Before the next episode there’s the end of an episode of Night Court.

In the next episode, Phoebe is trying on her wedding dress, and not getting on with Garry’s mother.

Garry reads her a fable about when Howard Sprague from the Andy Griffiths Show came to live in the Condo, and taught them all a lesson about life.

(I didn’t recognise him, never having seen the Andy Griffiths Show, but the reference to Mayberry helped me look him up.)

After this episode, recording continues, but there’s nothing else of interest – Sky didn’t used to go through the night, it would just show a schedule for the next day.
