Did You Know?


Helen O'Connell sings "The Boy From Ipanema" and "When the Sun Comes Out." Paar discusses his book "Three on a Toothbrush", his travels in East Africa, Jordan and Russia and his two dogs Schapps and Leica. Jim Henson's Muppets make an appearance with three odd creatures who pop up from a smoky lair and repeat a nonsense phrase with jazz accompaniment; Jim takes a bow afterwards. Joan Rivers does a stand-up routine about her difficulty meeting single men in show business and her fear of flying. Joan joins Jack and talks about her work as a comedy writer, her family background and her USO tour in Asia. Bill Cosby does a stand-up routine about his neighborhood friends from childhood, a go-cart race, and his love of radio horror dramas. See more »
