Overview
For the first time ever on DVD, ABC's cult hit Fridays is here! Originally airing from 1980 to 1982, these 16 episodes showcase the edgy and subversive sketch comedy that helped launch the careers of Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Michael Richards (Seinfeld), Melanie Chartoff (Parker Lewis Can't Lose) and more.

Also featuring Mark Blankfeld, Maryedith Burrell, Darrow Igus, Brandis Kemp, Bruce Mahler, and John Roarke, Fridays presented a hilariously twisted view of the early 80s to adventurous viewers on a weekly basis. Their outrageous characters - from the paranoid Drugs R Us Pharmacist to the rabbinical action heroes of Matzoi! to laid-back Nat E. Dred, "The Rasta Gourmet" - left audiences laughing long into the wee hours of the night.

With vintage musical performances (Including Devo, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, The Cars, The Clash, Dire Straits, Pat Benetar, KISS and more) as well as the show's infamous guest appearances by the legendary Andy Kaufman, Fridays proved that late-night live comedy wasn't just for Saturday nights.
