I wish it would come out on DVD. Get to see a lot of good artist of the early 80's. To bad Prince didn't perform on Fridays. Look at all these great performances

Andy Kaufman incident

On the February 20, 1981 episode, Andy Kaufman was the host. During a sketch about couples at dinner sneaking away to the bathroom to smoke marijuana, Kaufman, who was known for causing trouble on live television, broke character and refused to read his lines (saying "I can't play stoned"). Michael Richards got up from the table, grabbed the cue cards and threw them down on the table in front of Kaufman, who responded by throwing a glass of water on Richards. Some of the show's cast and crew members became angry and a small brawl broke out on stage. Since the show was broadcast live, home viewers were able to see most of these events transpire until the network cut the cameras off. Kaufman returned the following week in a taped apology to home viewers. The incident was planned by Kaufman, who concocted it with his sidekick Zmuda, and was meant as a prank. The only individuals aware of the plan were producer/director Moffitt, producer/announcer Burns, and the three comedians acting in the sketch along with Kaufman: Richards, Chartoff and Burrell.[3][4] This incident was reenacted in the film Man on the Moon (1999), starring Jim Carrey as Kaufman, Bob Zmuda as Burns, Norm Macdonald as Richards, Caroline Rhea as Chartoff and Mary Lynn Rajskub as Burrell.

Had no idea this much music was on this show, hope it gets released as it's a cool snap shot of music history.

In high school I did the Pharmacist skit on local access cable a few years after the show was pulled.

Needless to say, I was a fan but could never figure out where I knew Kramer from.

lol

I noticed that most of these acts never appeared on Saturday night live. I bet NBC banned them because they appeared on Fridays

After hearing so many stories about SNL and how they operate, this sounds about right.

It's amazing how much television featured musical acts, locally and nationally. It's so cool to see even if some are lip syncing and their instruments aren't plugged in.

I had been looking for this sketch for years and now thanks to Youtube, it's there. I remember it being beyond funny when I was little. Basically Kramer in a speedo.
