Editorial Reviews

When his dear friend David Susskind asked Henny Youngman for an on air interview, Youngman replied "Well, I don't know. That;'s the night my wife and I go out to dinner. We go to separate restaurants so, sure, why not?She'll never know." And that's why he is called the King of One Liners.

In the interview, we learn the origin of Youngman's trademark joke "Take my wife, please". and are treated to other trademark routines, including playing violin badly, which he does., for no other reason that to watch Susskind cringe.

Those who remember the Golden Age of the TV talk show, fondly remember producer David Susskind, who for nearly 30 years interviewed celebrities - whether entertainment or political - on his weekly show. It began on local New York City television in 1958 on the independent TV station WNTA. (The same station that aired his "Play of the Week Series") When WNTA became a public broadcasting station, the show - "Open End" went into syndication. It also changed its name sometimes to "The David Susskind Show"

Unlike the Dick Cavett Show - which I have devoured on DVD - Susskind was more serious in interviewing a guest during his one- hour or two-hour show (less commercials). I'd compare him more with Charlie Rose - but with a decidedly New York accent. And he could be sarcastic.

To my knowledge none of the "Open End" shows has been available on home video until last year when S'more Entertainment began releasing them (a two-hour Jerry Lewis interview was the first).

While this 58-minute DVD has "one-liner" comedian Henny Youngman's name prominently on the front and back of the package, you should know that Youngman only appears for the first 36 minutes of the program.

The show aired in 1984, two years before the end of Susskind's run. It was filmed in a studio with no audience, which makes Susskind the one only one there to laugh at Youngman's jokes. Youngman has a huge "joke file" but certain ones seem to be the most popular and those are the ones repeated here. If you've heard or seen him - and you probably have if you found this DVD - you've heard these jokes again and again, but his timing STILL makes you laugh. And he doers reveal when he first told his "Take my wife... Please!" joke.

The running time says '58 minutes' - but about 37/38 minutes is David Susskind with Henny and NO audience. David's questions were NOT very good. Henny did a great job answering him.
Then the rest of the show is WITHOUT Henny - interviewing 5 guys to trick their ways into getting their pictures taken with celebrities.

Want something better about Henny? Read his autobiography 'Take my Life, Please'

Too bad Amazon doesn't invest in someone who actually knows the name of the celebrity being interviewed here
or
didn't read the press release
or
didn't hire a proof reader
