Before there was Dick Cavett the talk show host, there was Dick Cavett the comedian. His early career as a writer for Jack Paar and Johnny Carson led him into the world of stand-up comedy, where his contemporaries were the likes of Woody Allen and Bill Cosby. Cavett would later welcome both to the Dick Cavett Show - but his comedian guests were by no means limited to his contemporaries. The twelve episodes in this collection feature the following guests: Woody Allen, Lucille Ball, Jack Benny, Carol Burnett, Mel Brooks, George Burns, Bill Cosby, Bob Hope, Jerry Lewis, Groucho Marks and The Smothers Brothers. Also included is a contemporary interview with Dick Cavett himself.
