| My Feelings Regarding Pat Paulsen
I was so happy to watch to watch all 13 episodes of "Pat Paulsen's Half a Comedy Hour". I hadn't seen it since I was in High School, but remember it as a hilarious light hearted comedy show. For over 10 years, I had written to all the video companies to please release the show to the general public, and it's finally happened!

The review "I Can't Pat" is entirely too mean spirited as if there is something personal involved here that we don't know about. Pat maintained topical humor-- the skit with Hubert H. Humphrey, the recurring themes of "Mr. Science" (Pat being flirtatious with a girl with large breasts while trying to get rid of her friend Bob Einstein), "Hobby Hut", and "Then Came Paulsen" was about as far as you could go, innocently enough, with comedy in 1970, and for me and many others, it worked. It was a sad day when Pat aired his last show in April 1970.

Pat Paulsen not being a popular comedian? I just have to give the one example-- when Pat did the water safety film for the American Red Cross he took his speedboat through the water at Florida's Cypress Gardens and the everyday people in the stands cheered Pat, and Pat with his big smile, waved back to them. That was one of my happiest moments for Pat. The saddest was when I read in the newspapers in late 1996 that our great comedian, with a photo of him smiling with his family, was fighting a deadly form of colon cancer.

The DVD released regarding Pat's one and only show will help us remember what a great comedian he was, with all the great facial expressions and deadpan delivery with his clean and contemporary humor. I am very happy and all I can say is "it's about time" for Pat to be remembered!
