Thirteen comics perform at a gigglefest in Montreal emceed by Andrea (SCTV) Martin (who, just for the record, was magnificent in her guest shots on Kate & Allie last month as a mad cable TV maven). Marsha (Night Court) Warfield is bold and bawdy—"Ugly people piss me off" is her only safely quotable line—but she's funny. Paula Poundstone and Louie Anderson are endearing. The rest of the comedians are pretty much shrug-worthy.
