Book Summary

Dick Cavett offers an evening of memories and rare clips at New York's 92nd Street Y.
When Dick Cavett became a talk show host in 1969, his keen intellect and unique wit infused the format with a new style. Cavett offered a forum for controversial opinions and issues ranging from women's liberation to Vietnam. The Dick Cavett Show also became a late-night home for top rock bands and such comedy legends as Groucho Marx, Jack Benny, George Burns, Bob Hope, Sid Caesar, and Lucille Ball.

Eddy Friedfeld is a film and entertainment journalist and the co-author, with Sid Caesar, of Caesar's Hours: My Life in Comedy With Love and Laughter. Friedfeld is currently working on a book on the history of comedy in America.
