TV legend and witty raconteur Dick Cavett joins me for my 100th episode. Known as the “thinking man’s talk show host,” Dick Cavett shares stories from his 5 decades in television. He discusses how he broke into show business, his long friendship with his personal idol Groucho Marx, his surprisingly chummy relationship with late-night rival Johnny Carson, his not so chummy relationship with the Nixon White House, and the time a guest actually died on air. He reminisces about Muhammad Ali, Truman Capote, Jack Benny, Walter Winchell, Ed Sullivan and the night a young woman tried to seduce he and Marlon Brando into a threesome.
