Storyline

Wayland Flowers and his infamous Madame - who describes herself as an "alcoholic sex fiend" - are our escorts on an unforgettable, often risque tour of the Big Apple. Dressed in lavish wardrobe, Madame sings, cackles and hoots her way through Manhattan, and is surprised by a number of guest stars, including the master of one liners, Henny Youngman.

With a live show filmed at Manhattan's Grand Finale Club, this 1984 production was released as a home video and is based around Madame's nightclub act with some ancillary studio-filmed scenes before and after the show. Also making cameo appearances are Anita Gillette and Alice Ghostly.

We find Madame on the phone taking a fully-robed, luxurious bubble bath. She's assuring her good friend and traveling companion, Maude, that Rona Barrett wasn't ignoring her... she simply didn't see her because she wasn't wearing her contacts.

Why is this not out on video?
1 October 2007 | by DrWhoBobSee all my reviews

For those who are familiar with Wayland Flowers and Madam from their appearances on Hollywood Squares, they will find this performance a little, "el differente" as Madam would say, herself. Madam is in rare form with her commentaries, from her "fuzzy" (a long, furry, flat dead thing) to her "Summer Diamonds" (summer diamonds, summer not). We also get a visit from Crazy Mary. I laughed myself silly the only time I go to watch this special. Language is rough; not for those expecting a G rated bit of comedy they'd expect to hear from a game show. However, if you don't mind raunchy, this show is extremely funny and I wish it would come out on video.
