Picks and Pans Review: Cable Chuckles

>For the next five Fridays, beginning Jan. 11 (11 P.M. ET), HA! will present Jackie Mason's Town Meeting, freewheeling sessions in which the comedian responds to questions and complaints from studio audiences. Not known for his ad libs, Jackie proves to be pretty quick—and funny—on his feet. On HBO, A Different World's Sinbad brings his jive-alive standup act to Morehouse College in Atlanta for Sinbad: Brain Damaged (Sat., Jan. 12, 10 P.M. ET). He raps about college life, fast food, black hairdos, marriage, and even brings out a trio of dancers for musical revues which open and close the show. Watch out Heavy D. & the Boyz. Airing opposite Sinbad on Showtime is The Steven Banks Show, the performer's second special. Once again this manic, MTV-age Walter Mitty is scurrying around in a cluttered apartment, acting out rock and roll fantasies. His professional and personal lives may be going to hell, but, hey, a dude can dream, can't he?
