George Gobel hosted three different variety series. The first was a half-hour program October 1954 thru June 1957. The second also for NBC was an hour broadcast alternating with the Eddie Fisher Show, both starring and guesting on each others program each week (September 1957 thru March 1959).
Third series for Gobel had him appear on CBS TV from October 1959 thru June 1960 back with a half-hour format.
During his NBC run George Gobel would do an "Alice" skit, parodying his own real life domestic life with wife, Alice.
Jeff Donnell (1957-1958) and later Phyllis Avery (1958-1959) played the role of Alice.
Usually there would be a guest star and a skit or two following a down home spun stand-up monolgue at the beginning of the program by "lonesone" George Gobel.
Guest: English film actor Richard Greene.
