The San Francisco theater group The Committee satirize topics like race relations, politics, sex and the media in this comedy montage of skits. A game show called Greed is one of the presentations. Another concerns a group of housewives who gather to discuss soap operas over coffee and cannabis. A hilarious presentation shows two businessmen, waiting in an office to see a client, who take to performing ferocious drum solos with their hands on their briefcases. Peter Bonerz, who would later star in the 1970s comedy "The Bob Newhart Show" is one of the main characters and introduces the feature. The performances range from 10 seconds to 14 minutes and end in blackouts. In other skits, a draft dodger tries to evade his induction into the military by pretending to be a frog, and a Caucasian dyes his skin to become "black."
