Who’s Stu Shostak? From the website:
Stu’s career in television and broadcasting dates back to the early 1970s when he began as an audience coordinator for game shows and sitcoms. In 1982, he received his performing break when he was given an opportunity to do the audience warm-up at the popular situation comedy, “Diff’rent Strokes“. He did so well that he was assigned regular warm-up duties the following season on the Ricky Schroder sitcom, “Silver Spoons“, a position he held for two years. Stu has also done warm-ups for “The Jeffersons“, “Mama’s Family“, “Amen”, and many others. Behind the scenes, he’s been the owner/operator of Shokus Video, a company dedicated to the preservation of 1950s TV shows on DVD and video tape, since 1979. He was also the producer and director of “The Jack La Lanne Show Commemorative Special” home video, as well as Lucille Ball’s personal film archivist for the last ten years of her life. He produced, wrote, and directed a bonus featurette for Shout! Factory’s “Leave it to Beaver – The Complete Series” DVD box set that starred the series’ Ken Osmond and Frank Bank (Eddie and Lumpy), along with supplying a generous amount of vintage archival footage and several “Stu’s Show” interviews for the release. He most recently hosted an on-camera bonus video and co-produced Shout! Factory’s “Dennis the Menace Season One” DVD set. He also worked as a consultant on all three subsequent seasons of the series.
“Stu’s Show” continues to attract new audiences each week with its impressive lineup of celebrities in the entertainment industry, both in front of and behind the cameras.
