Dick Cavett drops anecdotes and shares stories from the old days, when he dropped by The John Carney Show

Dick Cavett stopped by to share stories, rehash time-spent when Carney wrote for his syndicated talk show, and told a “California drought” joke that was rejected by Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show.

Dick Cavett has a history with John Carney….or should we say, John Carney has a history with Dick, as Carney wrote jokes for Cavett’s syndicated radio show for 8 years in the Eighties. But it’s been far too long since the two chatted, and even longer since John returned the favor and had Dick on The Carney Show….and by far too long, we mean Ever. The inaugural appearance of Dick Cavett on The Carney Show was filled with stories, jokes (a fantastic “California drought” joke that was rejected by Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show, for example), and Dick’s latest book, Brief Encounters: Conversations, Magic Moments, and Assorted Hijinks.

We got him on the hook for two segments, and enjoyed every minute of it….Listen here:
