Musical performances from KISS, THE CLASH, TOM PETTY & THE HEARTBREAKERS, THE CARS, DEVO and more can be found on the first-time-ever DVD release of ABC's cult hit Fridays. Originally airing from 1980 to 1982, these sixteen episodes showcase the edgy and subversive sketch comedy that helped launch the careers of Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Michael Richards (Seinfeld), Melanie Chartoff (Parker Lewis Can't Lose) and more.
Fridays presented a hilariously twisted view of the early '80s to adventurous viewers on a weekly basis. Their outrageous characters - from the paranoid Drugs R Us Pharmacist to the rabbinical action heroes of Matzoi! to the laid-back Nat E. Dred, "The Rasta Gourmet" - left audiences laughing long into the wee hours of the night.
On August 6th, Shout! Factory will release The Best Of Fridays, a five-DVD set. Check out KISS performing 'I' on the program:
