Leon Errol was a popular TV show that aired from 1950 to 1961. It starred the Australian-born comedian Leon Errol, who had a long and successful career in Hollywood as a comedic actor. The show was a half-hour variety show that featured Errol performing various comedy sketches and interacting with a rotating cast of guest stars.

Errol was known for his distinctive look, which included a walrus mustache, large glasses, and a trademark top hat. He was a skilled physical comedian, and many of his sketches relied on his ability to contort his body in ways that seemed impossible. He was also a talented singer and dancer, and often incorporated musical numbers into his routines.

The show had a vaudeville-style format, with Errol serving as the host and star of the show. Each week he would introduce a new lineup of guests, which included both established performers and up-and-coming talent. Some notable guests who appeared on the show over the years included Milton Berle, Lucy and Desi Arnaz, and Red Skelton.

One of the most beloved segments of the show was Errol's recurring sketch as "Dinky", a mischievous and clumsy old man who always seemed to be getting into trouble. The Dinky sketches were often filled with physical comedy, as Errol would stumble and fall his way through various situations. Another popular character was "Percy Pomeroy", a sophisticated but bumbling gentleman who was always getting into awkward situations.

The show was also known for its lavish production values. Each episode was shot on a large set that was decorated with elaborate sets and costumes. The musical numbers were often choreographed extravagantly, with dozens of dancers and intricate set pieces.

Despite its popularity, Leon Errol came to an end in 1961 when Errol suffered a stroke and was forced to retire from show business. However, the show remains a beloved classic of early TV comedy, and its influence can be seen in the work of later comedians like Carol Burnett and Lucille Ball.

Leon Errol is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (9 episodes). The series first aired on August 23, 2017.
