The Mark Russell Comedy Specials

For three decades, the savvy satirist dubbed "the funniest man on television" by "TV Guide" shared his humorous insights on national and world politics and society.

His live performance specials –- a PBS tradition –- featured pointed one-liners and sharp-witted piano parodies lampooning events and newsmakers of the day. The specials typically originated in Russell’s hometown of Buffalo, N.Y., but also included entertaining travelogues from places around the globe. In addition, several “year-in-review” and “songbook” specials compiled previously-aired program highlights.
