The Larry Grayson Show, 1975

Larry Grayson is an often forgotten comic of enormous talent best remembered for hosting The Generation Game.  However, before The Generation Game he had success with ITV.  Having been spotted in various ATV shows by Lew Grade, Larry Grayson was offered his own TV shows, the first of which was Shut That Door.  Hot on it’s heels came The Larry Grayson Show.

The Larry Grayson Show ran for two series one in 1975 and the other in 1977.

Summary

Comedy and Sketches where Larry Grayson is joined by an all star cast.  Centre piece is an impressive stage set consisting of a large marble staircase,  as was usual for these set pieces at the time there was of course the traditional dry ice mist drifting around the bottom of the staircase.
