NUNS POSE FOR PHOTOS WITH PICTURES OF NEARLY NUDE MEN,
ON ABC'S "JUST FOR LAUGHS"
"Episode 112" � Stretch out those stomach muscles and brace yourselves for more laughs on ABC's "Just for Laughs," TUESDAY, JANUARY 22 (8:30-9:00 p.m., ET). Knee-slapping gags include unsuspecting bystanders who lend a hand to start off a race, only to inadvertently "shoot" and "kill" a bird with a starter's gun; nuns soliciting assistance from strangers to take their photo alongside pictures of half-naked men; a "broken" lever sending a painter plunging into the water; a hidden speaker sending pedestrians scrambling with the frightful noise of screeching tires; and a drunken parking lot attendant crashing into a parked car. (Rebroadcast. OAD 9/24/07)
Rick Miller hosts.
