From the Catskill Mountains to Johnny Carson’s couch, Buddy Hackett made America laugh! A Las Vegas institution for over five decades, his often risqué stories are softened by his unique delivery.
In the 80’s HBO and premium cable service was “the new thing.”
Concerned that ‘giving away’ his act on cable would hurt his business at live venues, Hackett was slow to agree. HBO courted Buddy for close to a year before the deal was struck and the date was set.
Always a pioneer, the king of stand-up comedy performed before a live audience in a first of its kind, Comedy Special for the cameras of HBO. The program was nominated for a Cable Ace Award. Hackett was as hot as ever. On the heels of much acclaim, Buddy and HBO paired again in ‘85 recording Buddy Hackett Live and Uncensored 2.
Buddy continued to perform to capacity crowds for more than a decade. He retired in ’96, coming out of retirement on occasion to lend his talents to charitable events. Buddy passed away in 2003, but his legend lives on! These are those programs.
The concerts have been digitally re-mastered and restored to their original lengths. We’ve added rare and never-before-seen bonus footage!
