Krazy House is a Canadian comedy television miniseries which aired on CBC Television in 1977. It was an anthology series of several different sketch programmes independently written, performed and produced by different performers in different cities. Members of the Royal Canadian Air Farce were involved in writing and performing in Toronto-shot episodes 1, 2 and 5 (though Dave Broadfoot and Luba Goy were the only Air Farce members to appear on-screen), while episodes 3 and 4 were shot in Vancouver and featured the cast of CBC Radio's Dr. Bundolo's Pandemonium Medicine Show. Episode 6 featured a cast of unknowns, and was not connected to either the Air Farce or Bundolo troupes.[1]

Twenty-one years later, Air Farce members Roger Abbott and Don Ferguson would create and produce a similar sketch-based anthology series: the 1998/99 CBC show SketchCom.


This half-hour series was broadcast Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m. (Eastern) from 12 January to 23 February 1977.

Ottawa Citizen television critic Keith Ashford, reviewing the first episode to be broadcast on 12 January, blasted the series as "unfunny, uninteresting and shamelessly derivative", noting that a sketch featuring marital counselling was taken from a Monty Python routine.[2] Dennis Braithwaite of The Toronto Star, meanwhile, issued a rave review of the show on 18 February, calling it "as light as a souffle, as brilliant as a diamond", and claiming it was "only rivalled by Global's Second City", then still in its first season on TV.[3] However, reviewing the episode of 23 February, Braithwaite noted that the performers he had earlier praised were all now absent from the series, and that the resulting episode was "awful, terrible, beyond question the worst attempt at humour that even the CBC has ever made."[4]
