Pittsburgh Press (15 January 1976) reviewed the first of four "National Lampoon Show" to be staged at the Nixon Theatre on 14-15-16 and 17 January 1976, in downtown Pittsburgh:
"Seldom has a group of performers worked so hard to be rude as the cast of 'The National Lampoon Show' at the Nixon. That's the idea: to offend. To a point, the players succeed. They're a likeable lot: two girls, four guys and a pianist, almost all of them are on stage throughout the intermissionless 100-minute show. They fail, ultimately, because their material offends the wrong way, its irreverence backfires. 'Lampoon' is more tiresomely vulgar than cleverly satiric. The better practioners of insult humor understand that it isn't enough to be outrageous; humor thrieves on cockeyed insight. Here, there is little. Martin Charnin staged 'Lampoon' with a cast featuring Jim Hosbein (best of the lot by virtue of his timing and offhandedness), Ellen Foley and Larry Dilg".
