It Was A Thing on TV Twin Pack (Episodes #83 & 84): David Letterman Shows Within The Show & Steve Martin's The Winds of Whoopee

Read more
First, who doesn't enjoy late night television's comedy bits between the monologue and the first guest?  We like them so much, we are devoting episodes to such segments which we affectionately call "shows within the show."  Our first look at late night shows within the show is David Letterman, running the gamut from a troubled teen who is clearly not a troubled teen, to a spoof of one of the most popular and controversial shows of the day.
Next, in February of 1983, ABC aired the highly anticipated miniseries "The Winds of War." As counter programming, NBC aired a comedy special with Steve Martin called ...... "The Winds of Whoopee". This episode is shorter than usual because under half of it is online and it is more of a retrospective than anything.  But really, that title is why we're here.
As always you can follow us on our social media pages over @ItWasAThingOnTV along with e-mailing us for feedback or show suggestions over at contact@itwasathingontv.com
Seriously, Greg might die of laughter by the time this episode is posted over "The Winds of Whoopee."

Saul Colt loves Late Night with David Letterman

Read more

Saul Colt is an experiential and word-of-mouth marketer based on Toronto (available for you to hire at The Idea Integration Co) who loved David Letterman. In this conversation, not only does Saul sing praises for the premise of Finding Favorites, he walks us through the bands, movies and comics that he found through David Letterman.

Late Night with David Letterman started on NBC in 1982 and lasted 10 years. He moved from NBC to CBS in 1992 when Leno took over The Tonight Show. He stayed at CBS until his retirement in 2015. You can now find David Letterman on Netflix with a long-form interview show called My Next Guest Needs No Introduction.

We talk a bit about Larry Bud Melman, so here's a classic clip of Larry Bud Melman at Port Authority.

And for good measure, here are The Lemonheads singing It's a Shame about Ray instead of Mrs. Robinson.

It Was A Thing on TV Twin Pack (Episodes #67-68): Break The Bank & the Game Show Finales of 6/20/80 + The David Letterman Show

Read more

This week on It Was A Thing on TV we're calling the Smithsonian and asking them to put this collection into the vault!

Mike, Chico and Greg first discuss the various game shows called "Break The Bank" Three completely different shows, one was good, one was basic and one was a mess. And how does one Mrs. Mickey Kennedy Branson play a role in this?

Also this past week marked 40 years since we saw the temporary end of three game shows, each of which would all return to the airwaves by 1987. It also saw the birth of a legend, though he would make his mark in late night. We look at the three NBC game show finales of June 20, 1980 and their replacement, The David Letterman Show in this timely installment of the podcast.

Adam Resnick, author of WILL NOT ATTEND, writer for David Letterman, HBO's Divorce, and the cult classic Get a Life | Ep8 BOOKS CONNECT US

Read more

Today's guest is Adam Resnick, an Emmy Award winner who has written on Late Night with David Letterman, The Larry Sanders Show, HBO's Divorce, and who co-created the cult favorites CABIN BOY and GET A LIFE. As an author Resnick penned the darkly comedic essay collection WILL NOT ATTEND, which Rolling Stone called "An anti-social work of art" and the Chicago Tribune praised as "A biting, darkly hilarious collection of personal essays that begs to be read aloud." Here's Adam Resnick in conversation with Penguin Random House Video Director Pat Stango.

Praise for Will Not Attend

“Writing a collection of short stories is a very difficult thing to do. These Adam Resnick stories are great. You read one and think, that was so well done maybe I’ll read another. You think, the next one can’t be as good, and it’s even better. I hope you read this book. It’s funny, smart and thoughtful; and it’s funny, smart and thoughtful. I loved it. I think you will as well. Did I mention I loved it? Happy reading.”—Dave Letterman

“Having worked with Adam Resnick many years ago, I can easily recall he was a little nuts, but I completely forgot he was this talented and funny. Damn, this book is good.”—Jon Stewart

“Adam Resnick is one of the funniest writers I’ve ever known, and he proves it big-time in this acid-swaddled memoir. You will laugh reading this book, I swear to Christ Almighty. Adam comes by his misanthropy honestly and bravely—and his continued existence is a tribute to the soul-nourishing qualities of an unrelenting, unforgiving, and hilarious outlook. I will be reading this again and again for the rest of my life like it’s the goddamn bible.”—Bob Odenkirk

“In the ideal film adaptation of Will Not Attend, second-grader Adam Resnick would be played by a four-foot-tall, fully adult homunculus Resnick, animated by a precocious despair, disdainful of cultural idiocy, and wearing the ever-present scowl of the perpetually put-upon. Undoubtedly, the child Resnick is father of the man Resnick. This is a very funny book, and I would pay decent money to see the movie version, or even to play it in the form of an extremely sad video game.”—Charlie Kaufman

Teri Garr talks about Surviving Hollywood, Tootsie, Star Trek and David Letterman

Read more

One of our earliest interviews, actress Teri Garr talks about her life and amazing acting career from her Oscar nominated role in Tootsie, her various appearances on David Letterman and how she almost became a regular cast member on Star Trek.

Originally air date Dec. 15, 2005. "FOF #211 – Does This Wheelchair Make Me Look Fat?"

Teri Garr considered naming her autobiography “Does This Wheelchair Make Me Look Fat?” But instead, she decided on “Speedbumps: Flooring it through Hollywood.” The result is a hilarious and touching book that begins with growing up in a vaudevillian family, dancing in Elvis Presley’s movies, winning an Oscar for her hilarious role in the film Tootsie, and then coming to terms and living with Multiple Sclerosis.

Considered by many to be one of the best comedic actresses in recent history, Teri Garr speaks candidly with hosts Fausto Fernós and Marc Felion about her work in such films as Tootsie and Young Frankenstein.

Listen as Teri Garr reveals the real reason why she has such great on-air chemistry with David Letterman, how she came up with the memorable line in Tootsie “I am responsible for my own orgasms” and how she got her television beginnings in Star Trek.

Her new autobiography “Speedbumps: Flooring it Through Hollywood” is available right now on Amazon.com by clicking the link below.
