Ray Charles On The Comedy In America Report (1976)

'76 TV Report NM

The Comedy In America Report was a one-off one-hour musical comedy variety show, “which takes a humorous look at the contemporary scene”, starring Ray Charles, Rip Taylor, Don Knotts, Conrad Bain, Ray Stevens, Art Metrano and others. It aired on 9 April 1976.
On the TV guide page of the Oswego Palladium it was announced as “An experimental variety hour that tries to be different, at least”. The Miami News announced that “[…] Ray Charles sings a protest song in front of the Capitol building. It’s partly political satire and partly slapstick.”

Who knows more?
