The Groove Tube is a 75-minute satire comedy of 1970's television. Among the things poked fun by writer Ken Shapiro are news shows, children’s shows, adverts, and popular shows of the era. Among the skits are “Sex Olympics”, “The Hitchhiker”, and commercial for the “Uranus Corporation”. Keep an eye out for two future big names in these series of sketches as a young up-and-coming comedian named Chevy Chase stars in a series of skits and is also joined by Richard Belzer’s debut in the film industry. Before there was Saturday Night Live to make fun of everything culturally relevant, The Groove Tube was trailblazing their path on the Silver Screen.
