Jerry Van Dyke, whose older brother co-starred with Mary Tyler Moore in The Dick Van Dyke Show, appears as Wes Callison, a gag writer for WJM-TV's resident kiddie host, Chuckles the Clown. Wes dreams of becoming a standup comedian, and his new girlfriend Mary wants to give him that chance. The whole newsroom staff shows up for Wes' first gig -- in the all-but-deserted lounge of a tacky bowling alley. "But Seriously, Folks" was first broadcast on November 4, 1972.
