Back in the early 80s, one of my favorite TV programs was a sketch comedy show called Bizarre.
It was on Showtime.
One of the recurring characters was a spoof of famous daredevil Evel Knievel. The guy on the show was Super Dave Osborne.
Super Dave was always doing some outrageous stunts and, to put it mildly, they always ended badly. And by badly I mean really fucked up – like Super Dave getting crushed by a steamroller or some shit.
One of my favorite Super Dave exploits was when he was gonna leap off the 1815 feet tall CN Tower in Toronto.
We pick it up with Super Dave perched high atop the CN Tower giving a pre-jump interview with announcer Mike Walden.
