I am NOT a Mel Brooks fan, not by any means, but I was held totally spellbound by this show...and it was all Cavett. He managed to bring the best out of Brooks, as he always does with his interviewees. He brings himself to the interview without being intrusive, and at 70 years old, his boyish "gee whiz" admiration of his guest just shines.
Seeing "The Dick Cavett Show" again here, using his old graphics and entrance and exit music, and seeing him just as brilliant, articulate, witty and charming as ever, well, my hat's off to you, Cavett! You make all the other talk show hosts, comedians and stand up "comics" of 2006 look cheap and stupid by comparison.
If you want to, and have the will and energy to do it, please do more of these! I for one will watch every single show with pleasure.
