It can now be revealed...

"The Ernie Kovacs Collection", a six-disc DVD box set from Shout!Factory is now available for pre-order. The set's 13+ hours of Kovacs programs, sketches and rarities was curated by yours truly; I'd been working on this since May 2010 and had been asked to keep my big trap shut until Shout's press release went wide today (how I didn't leak anything about this at Slapsticon is beyond me).

It's a career retrospective, with Kovacs shows, sketches and other clips from 1951 through 1962, plus a bunch of way-cool extras, some of which haven't been seen in 50 years.

You can order the set on Amazon et al, but you won't be able to get the 7th bonus disc unless you order direct from Shout's website. Click here to go to Shout!Factory's page for the set.

The press release, which lists all the programming, can be read here.

Thanks, and it's been real.

Kovacs-mania is beginning to gather steam, as the DVD set's release date (April 19) looms. Be sure to order your copy from Shout Factory's website in order to receive the bonus DVD that includes surviving material from "Tonight!" hosted by Ernie, and more. The extra disc isn't available through Amazon et al.

Here's some press we've gotten already:
