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 CanÕt Lose) and more.

Also featuring Mark Blankfield, Maryedith Burrell, Darrow Igus, Brandis Kemp, Bruce Mahler, and John Roarke, Fridays presented a hilariously twisted view of the early 80s to adventurous viewers on a weekly basis. Their outrageous characters Ð from the paranoid Drugs R Us Pharmacist to the rabbinical action heroes of Matzoi! to the laid-back Nat E. Dred, ÒThe Rasta GourmetÓ Ð left audiences laughing long into the wee hours of the night.

With vintage musical performances (including Devo, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Cars, The Clash, KISS and more) as well as the showÕs infamous guest appearances by the legendary Andy Kaufman, Fridays proved that late-night live comedy wasnÕt just for Saturday night.
