GGACP Classic: Richard Belzer
Manage episode 356147082 series 2149386
GGACP salutes the life and career of the late, great actor-comedian Richard Belzer by revisiting this memorable interview from back in 2018. In this episode, Richard is joined by former GGACP guests Tom Leopold and Paul Shaffer for a hilarious round-table discussion of essential topics, including: the glory days of Catch a Rising Star, the Jackie Mason-Ed Sullivan feud, the infamous Chevy Chase roast and the war between Gallagher and “Gallagher Too.” Also, Señor Wences sells the act, Alan King lusts after Topo Gigio, Liza plays the Rhineland and Mick Jagger pays “The Belz” a rare compliment. PLUS: “Al Capone, the Musical”! The return of Dick & Stinky! The ballad of Perfecto Telles! Gilbert “louses” Harry Shearer! And Richard remembers his friend (and hero) Jerry Lewis.
