Before there was Dick Cavett the talk show host, there was Dick Cavett the comedian.
Cavett's early career as a writer for Jack Paar and Johnny Carson naturally led him into the world of stand-up comedy, where his contemporaries were the likes of Woody Allen and Bill Cosby. Cavett would later welcome both to The Dick Cavett Show. But Cavett's comedian guests were by no means limited to his contemporaries Cavett developed warm personal relationships with people like Groucho Marx, Bob Hope and Jack Benny. These great raconteurs and storytellers had some of their finest moments in Cavett's studio, where they found a unique forum that didn't necessarily require them to be funny. But of course they simply couldn't be anything else.
