Kentucky Fried Movie

Year: 1977
Production Co: Kentucky Fried Theatre
Director: John Landis
Writer: Jim Abrahams/Jerry Zucker/David Zucker
The training ground for one of the most influential and funniest comedy teams ever to make films.

Listen hard to the sketch-based film and you'll hear the names Steve McCroskey and Rex Kramer.

The Zucker brothers bring us a variety of skits of different lengths, laugh quotient and styles, but before Amazon Women on the Moon and Flying High/Airplane, this is the movie that started them both.

From their locally famed Kentucky Fried theatre troupe, the then-thirtysomething brothers had never directed a film, and the producers let them write it but passed the reigns to the more experienced John Landis
