A classic bit from The Steve Allen Show in 1960. According to Classic Television Showbiz, where we found this, Knotts only had one comedy album? What? How’s that happen? The man was a genius.
Telly Savalas on one of Bob Hope’s specials from 1976, first exchanging banter, then singing a duet, if you can believe it.
I find it amusing that apparently whatever version of teleprompter they’re using must have been down at the stage level, since as they’re exchanging jokes they’re both looking down.
If you want more of Telly singing, you can find it at Classic Television Showbiz.
Yes, I know, the video quality is for shit but just trust me.
Update: Sadly, this clip has been taken down. If anybody finds Carl again, please let me know.
When we can, we try to give you something to kick your week off with a nice, hearty WTF.
I know the title of this post is a bit odd, but you’re just going to have to see for yourself. Just…trust me.
