The Joe Pyne Show (1966)

The beef box was a regular feature of The Joe Pyne Show in which beatniks and degenerates sitting in the audience could challenge the opinions of the all-American host, Joe Pyne. Sometimes the beef box simply consisted of old men complaining about the price of batteries, but many times it was old-fashioned Pyne versus the high-on-drugs youth of the sixties. If we needed to nominate the clips that qualify for "Best Ever" appearances here on Classic Television Showbiz, the previous Joe Pyne stuff would be right at the top of the list.

God, Pyne was such a dick. But so much more fun to watch than his descendents like Glenn Beck
