<strong>DICK CAVETT<br>INSIDE THE MINDS OF VOL. 1
Available at

Between 1968 and 1996 The Dick Cavett Show aired in various formats on ABC, CBS, PBS, USA Network and CNBC. Over the years Cavett welcomed roughly 10,000 guests including some of the most interesting figures in film, theatre, sports, music, literature, art and politics. But the show might also feature a notorious underworld figure or a reptile expert. The Dick Cavett Show was certainly diverse.

Cavett started his television career as a writer for Jack Paar on The Tonight Show. He continued writing for Johnny Carson when Paar left the show and soon began writing for himself. Cavett’s time as a standup comedian placed him in America’s comedy clubs during an era when those clubs featured the likes of Woody Allen, Bob Newhart, Lenny Bruce, George Carlin and Mort Sahl.

Throughout its history, The Dick Cavett Show was a frequent stop for comedians. Cavett interviewed generations of the greatest comic minds dating back to vaudeville with guests like Groucho Marx, Jack Benny, Bob Hope and George Burns, and continuing through the television age with the likes of Lucille Ball, Phil Silvers and Dick Van Dyke. Cavett’s conversations with comedians are particularly insightful, given Cavett’s own career as a comedian and comedy writer.

In this four-show collection, Cavett talks with Robin Williams, Bobcat Goldthwait, Richard Lewis and Gilbert Gottfried—groundbreaking comedians of a later generation.

Robin Williams was an actor and comedian who rose to fame in the television sitcom Mork & Mindy. His movie credits include Good Will Hunting (for which he won an Academy Award®), Dead Poets Society, Aladdin, The World According to Garp, The Fisher King, Jumanji and Night at the Museum. Cavett conducted a revealing two-part interview with Williams at the height of his Mork & Mindy success.

Bobcat Goldthwait is a comedian, filmmaker, actor and voice artist who came to prominence in the Police Academy film franchise. Goldthwait has written and directed a number of films and television series, most notably the black comedies Shakes the Clown, World’s Greatest Dad, and God Bless America. He also directed episodes of Chappelle’s Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and Maron.

Richard Lewis is ranked #45 on Comedy Central’s list of “100 Greatest Standups of All Time.” He came to prominence in the 1980s as a comedian specializing in self-deprecating, neurotic humor before turning to acting. He appeared in Anything But Love, as himself in Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Mel Brooks’ Robin Hood: Men in Tights. Cavett interviewed Lewis during the run of Anything But Love.

Gilbert Gottfried is a standup comedian, actor and voice artist. His film credits include Aladdin, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Gilbert was a Saturday Night Live cast member, and the subject of the touching and honest documentary Gilbert.
