Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Paramount Comedy Theatre is a series of three cable specials, all hosted by Howie Mandell. The first, subtitled "Well Developed," was taped at the Magic Club in Hermosa Beach, Florida. Among the performers are America's Funniest Home Videos emcee Bob Saget, comic magician Judy Carter, musical humorist Bruce Mahler, and nimble-fingered funnyman Philip Welford. Most of the material is generic enough to please all ages, but some is strictly for adults. Volume One of The Paramount Comedy theatre was followed by two additional tapes, "Decent Exposures" and "The Hanging Party."
