Did You Know?


George Hamilton, as one time host in 1965, sang The Beatles hit ballad "And I Love Her'. The Producer was so impressed, with his performance, that Hamilton was asked to host regularly, but Hamilton turned it down the offer, as he was not interested in expanding his singing career, at that time.

Other Hullabaloo episode with Woody
13 October 2005 | by slotownbobSee all my reviews

I also saw Woody Allen live on another Hullabaloo episode - at about the same time. that is apparently not covered in this discography. It was in 1963 or 1964 - televised in Boston - with Jack Linkletter as host. Stars were The Chad Mitchell Trio as headliners; other guests included Leon Bibb and The Big Three (female singer was a then "unknown" Cass Elliot, who later would join The Mamas and Papas) and another folksinger - Joe Washington?. Woody Allen was the lone stand-up comic, honing his craft as a neurotic, under-sized. Jewish New Yorker whose observations were pointed and funny. He talked about dating, growing up, education. and the world around him. Ties then were about 1" wide.
