"Scratch a comedian and you'll find a philosopher -- Cavett knew just where they itched." -- Grade: A
While its ratings never matched those of Johnny Carson's THE TONIGHT SHOW, Dick Cavett's 1960s and '70s late-night talk show was a staple of the era's pop culture, known for the charm and wit of its host as well as for the quality of its guests. This collection of episodes showcases the array of comic talent that visited Cavett on his show, which includes Woody Allen, Bill Cosby, Carol Burnett, the Smothers Brother, Groucho Marx, and Jerry Lewis.
