Film Vault Friday: Howard Stern & the American Comedy Awards

Just this afternoon, I was talking to somebody about the old American Comedy Awards, mainstay of the 1990s post-boom holdover period.

While not technically a moving video, this 3-part segment from the Howard Stern Show outlines Howard’s voting choices for the 1995 edition — and, in a way, takes some of the mystery out of the death of this tradition. Enjoy.
