The Drew Carey Show - "Brotherhood of Man"

If there was anything about The Drew Carey Show I enjoyed, it was its sense of the absurd. And that would of course include the cast spontaneously breaking into song and dance (much like the opening credits for the series). Here, Drew and the entire cast, along with guest star Hal Linden take on the "Brotherhood of Man" the fool proof showstopping eleven o'clock number from How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, even parodying the dialogue lead-in and lines interspersed throughout. Two notes: They are using the original 1961 arrangement and Mimi taking on the Ruth Kobart (the original Miss Jones onstage and onscreen) vocal line is an inspired choice, wouldn't you agree?

Absolutely wonderful! I remember seeing this original airing. I love The Drew Carey Show and I admit to crushin' on Drew.
