When his dear friend David Susskind asked Henny Youngman for an on air interview, Youngman remarked, “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 called King of the One Liners.

“I just went on a pleasure trip; I took my mother-in-law to the airport.”

“I asked my wife ‘where do you want to go for vacation?’ She said ‘somewhere I’ve never been before.’
I said ‘why don’t you try the kitchen.’”

“ A lady hears that you can lose weight if you wrap yourself in Saran wrap, so she does.
Her husband comes home for dinner, looks at her and says ‘leftovers again.’”

We learn the origin of Youngman’s trademark joke, “Take my wife, please?,” and are treated to his other trademark routine, playing violin poorly, which he does, if nothing else, to watch David cringe. It’s a joy watching two long-time buddies lovingly recall the past—Youngman helped launch the careers of many comedians, including Red Buttons—and discuss what’s current, and, most importantly, how to stay on top in the entertainment business.
Susskind’s second interview is with seemingly normal New York men whose passion is collecting photos of themselves with famous people. They crash, among other things, major sporting events—Stanley Cup Finals, World Series of Baseball—Academy Award® parties, and political fundraisers. Their trophies are snapshots with with the likes of Frank Sinatra, presidents Reagan, Nixon and Carter, Liza Minelli, Jackie Onassis, Paul Newman and Muhammed Ali, to name a few. And, each comes with a story.
