Storyline

Wayland Flowers' diva Madame (a retirement age ventriloquist character who all ways spoke her/his mind while wearing fabulously over the top jewel and feather accented designer original gowns) starred as herself. Similar to "The Larry Sanders Show" (1992), the meat of each episode was in the backstage areas of her life. The primary cast included her three person staff, and a pre-teen Corey Feldman as the latch key neighbor kid who spent most of his days hanging around Madame's house. Most episodes dealt with standard sitcom style dilemmas in Madame's career or home life, peppered with Flower/Madame's biting one liners. Written by Silast

Madame: Ladies, are you tired of keeping your traps shut when your old man screws up real bad? Do you have to try to be in control of your temper when he does something so stupid even you can't believe it? Are you fed-up with being the nice quiet little wife when he can be a dumb loud-mouth oaf of a husband any time he pleases? If you answer yes to any of these questions, it's time you ordered your very own Inflatible Husband Doll. Yes folks, this wintery little doll will just sit there and look ...

One of the funniest TV-series from the 1980's
22 December 1998 | by vmoralesSee all my reviews

Though Madame's Place was a only one-season series (and for a good reason), the first 5 or 6 shows were the funniest TV shows since Spike Jones and Groucho Marx in the 50s. The show had a "host" corner (ala early Johnny Carson) that once had Phyllis Diller as the celebrity guest in an incredible rapid-exchange of dubious cumpliments with her host that culminate when Phyllis reminds Madame that "...and your vanity table is a Decker & Decker!!" On another show Madame had Tab Hunter as the guest and she kept confusing him with other teeny boppers' hearthrobs of 50s ( Madame: "I always like you with Annette (Funicello) in all those beach movies!! Tab: "Madame!, that was Frankie Avalon.."). The show had other corners that sometimes (and increasingly) did not work so well. Only the portions over which Wayland Flowers had complete control (namely Madame) were always on target. I still enjoy my old video tapes from the original broadcast, but the are getting a little washed down, so hopefully whoever owns the rights knows what a treasure these shows are.
