Jerry Fairfax coming soon to Amazon Streaming Video
The Jerry Fairfax Show was conceived in the Cine Paris repertory company for film and television as a comedy vehicle for Michael Chanslor and was intended as an experimental and innovative show with a non-stop parade of insider humor about show business and the television industry. The show is almost entirely improvisation where I would create gags for the actors on the fly to fit the flow of the show that Michael Chanslor was creating with his improvisation as Jerry. The only materials prepared in advance was the Fairfax Funnies and the guest line-up that Michael would create. The show is "live-to-tape" and shot without breaks from beginning to end.
For nine years, I judged Best Director in a Comedy Series for the CableACE Awards and other members of the Jerry Fairfax cast became judges for the CableACE Awards during production of the 190 shows that we taped.
