The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour

The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour

I Love Lucy was a popular 1950's sitcom about a not-so-average housewife, Lucy Ricardo, married to a Cuban band leader, Ricky Ricardo, living in a New York apartment building owned by her two best friends and landlords, Fred and Ethel Mertz. After the end of the six year run for I Love Lucy, the production crew decided to move on to a comedy hour show, airing episodes each month. Thus, The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour was born! Featuring a new celebrity each month (including Hedda Hopper, Tallulah Bankhead, Red Skelton and Bob Cummings), these Lucy-Desi shows entertained Lucy fans around the world. In the series second season, it became product of a new show, The Desilu Playhouse. Every four-six weeks, the Desilu Playhouse would air the Lucy hours. Lucy's stunts never change, and get wilder with sixty minutes to fill, with Lucy meeting celebrities next door, going to Mexico and Alaska, finally making it on TV and buying pearls in Japan! However, with the failure of Lucy and Desi's marriage came the unfortunate end to the Lucy-Desi saga, and would therefore end the Ricardos and the Mertzes for good. However, they will always be remembered and valued by the many fans who watched them in their first run, and the many fans who watch them today.

The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour was a Desilu production.
