The Ed Sullivan Show

Post by Rob Lister »

Are you old enough to remember the Ed Sullivan Show?

I was 11 when they cancelled it. I miss that show.

Is there a modern version of that show?

Remember it well, sadly. Beatles and those street fighting men, Mick and the Rolling Stones. Tough guy changed the lyrics to "lets spend some time together" so as not to offend the main mic, Ed.

Yes I remember. :oldman:

All the great acts of that era. 8)

The Beatles, the Stones, The Doors,

Topo Gigio, [1]



Señor Wences, [2]



Shecky Greene, [3]



[1] Unlike New York Italians, Italians from Italy are not Jewish when it come to humor.

[2] You may have seen Carl Reiner doing his shtick.

[3] Not bad. Gigs at Kutsher's, Grossinger's, The Nevele, and then finally Ed Sullivan. OK this one was not Ed Sullivan, but he was there.

I only remember the guy who spun the plates on sticks.
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"what dicking deep shit i produce" -- pillory

Freedom of choice
Is what you got
Freedom from choice
Is what you want

People are shitting themselves to death
Crap so much they fail to take a breath
But even when their kids are starvin'
They thought Trump would throw them Charmin.

Is there any show like that today? There should be. But who should host?
