| So Funny I Forgot To Laugh
IMO - Had this early-1960s TV Sit/Com not made frequent use of "canned laughter", then, you can be certain no one (in their right mind) would be laughing, or giggling (or, even snickering, for that matter) at the comedy that was delivered here.

Personally, I failed to see the humor of the situations in this show that centered around a dull, middle-aged man (Joey Bishop) who was still living with his mother (as were his younger brother, his sister, and his sister's husband, too) and who was repeatedly being fired from his job.

As a "so-called" comedian - I found Joey Bishop's persona to be so dry, flat, and uncharismatic that I could only describe him as being nothing but a big, egocentric bore.

I cannot believe that in its day this decidedly dreary TV show apparently had its audiences at home breaking out into peals of uncontrollable laughter.... Like - Duh!
