Robert Klein the man who changed comedy.

Robert Klein the man who changed comedy.
Plays: 66

Robert Klein talks about his amazing life in comedy. We cover everything from 50 years and 93 appearances on The Tonight Show, his time at Second City, his relationship with Rodney Dangerfield and the differences of doing comedy on Ed Sullivan, Johnny Carson and now, Jimmy Fallen. We cover censorship in the 1960s and doing his first HBO comedy special. We also cover the documentary made about him where comedy giants like Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno, and Bill Maher talk about Klein's influence on them, only to have the film tied up in litigation because of Harvey Weinstein’s involvement, resulting in it being tied up in litigation. We also chat about Robert Klein's two biggest comedic influences: Lenny Bruce and Johnathon Winters. OK - we cover much more, but you really should be listening to this thing by now!
