Red Skelton – The Farewell Specials

In short, Red Skelton – The Farewell Specials is a collection of several of Red’s performances from his later years, including some of my personal favorites:

  • Red Skelton’s Christmas Dinner – with Vincent Price and Imogene Coca – very sweet and very funny
  • More Funny Faces – with the world-famous Marcel Marceau
  • Funny Faces III – an HBO special of a 52-minute one man show by Red
  • A Royal Command Performance – Red celebrated his 70th birthday with a Command Performance at London’s Royal Albert Hall. The royal family were treated to Freddy the Freeloader, Clem Kadiddlehopper, George Appleby, Gertrude & Heathcliff, and the Guzzler’s Gin routine.
