Here it is! The Cap'n Video Show has hit the internet!
BEFORE THERE WAS JACKASS... BEFORE THERE WAS TOM GREEN...
THERE WAS RALPH ZAVADIL.
His cable access television show, The Cap'n Video Show, ran from 1990 to 1995, spawning a small but loyal cult following. Each week Ralph performed a series of idiotic and occasionally dangerous stunts, challenging the sensibilities of his small Southern Ontario audience. With the advent of the internet and reality television still years away, his unique brand of gross-out stunt comedy was truly ahead of its time. All it took was a broken neck for him to get noticed.
Presented here is a re-edited, 10 minute episode of the original Cap'n Video Show. The plan is to potentially release the entire series online via these shorter, internet friendly clips. Ralph has hours of footage shot for his cable 10 show and has decided it's time to let the Cap'n loose online! Stay tuned!!
You can see Ralph's story in the feature documentary Beauty Day (vimeo.com/20169506), now available via iTunes (itunes.apple.com/us/movie/beauty-day/id598555144). Stay tuned for more episodes of the original Cap'n Video Show!!
