Chauncey's DeVega's World of Ghetto Nerds: YouTube Discoveries--Classic Howard Stern from WWOR-TV

The fun of having a blog is that I can amuse myself, sounds naughty huh? Growing up in Connecticut, I have fond memories of WWOR-TV Channel 9 from New Jersey. This station was ahead of its time and featured early Morton Downey Junior, The Richard Bey show (I think that was the title) which had a recurring Mr. Puniverse and Miss Thunderthighs competition that was indescribably funny, and Howard Stern's first television show. I don't know why Stern's early TV work isn't available on DVD but he was routinely demolishing Saturday Night Live in the ratings. Thanks to the goodness of YouTube these early classics are finally being made available.

Here is a sample.

One of my favorites--Herve Villechaize from Fantasy Island fame...and it features a clip of him having sex in one of his first movie roles:

Howards Stern's Hooker Howiewood squares clip 1

Clip 2

Clip 3

Richards Simmons and his obese guests brought to near tears by Howard's antics

"Gilligan's" Island:

Al Lewis aka Grandpa from The Munsters:

"Out of the Closest Munsters"--a spoof of the Munsters:

The greatest clip of them all--Howard Stern in blackface as Clarence Thomas:

Part 2 is better than the first as Howard, still in Clarence Thomas blackface, interviews the Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Offensive of course, but absolutely hysterical.
