Thread Name: BS: When did Ed Sullivan die?
Subject: RE: BS: When did Ed Sullivan die?
Jack E Leonard, while hosting a Friars Roast in the 1970s of Don Rickles, introduced Ed Sullivan--who was in the audience--"...I see Ed Sullivan is here today--Hi, Ed,==was the ground cold when you came up this morning".
He had some other great lines about others---For Flip Wilson--Hey Flip let me make you feel at home here---ALL ABOARD!!.
Richard Pryor did a great riff on Jack E Leonard when he got up=--"...Hey Jack--what shall I call you when I marry your daughter--Dad?"
A great roast that was recorded uncensored---Johnny Carson and Jackie Vernon fairly stole the evening.
