Jack Paar - Funny What You Learn From Women mp3 flac
While reading Jack Paar's second book, My Saber is Bent (1961, Pocket Books), my mouth froze during chapter fourteen. I assumed the page heading, Fairies and Communists, was a tongue-in-cheek title that one needn't take seriously. This is, after all, a book written by a top television comedian. Instead, what it fed me was hitherto overlooked information about Jack Paar. Granted, this was the early sixties; an era when social mores allowed sexism, racism and homophobia to exist more or less unabated . Paar was known for his many feuds. He sparred with columnist Dorothy Kilgallen, actor Mickey Rooney and fellow TV host Ed Sullivan. You learn something new every day! Posted by: Larry Grogan June 07, 2010 at 11:45 AM.

Paar first began his broadcasting career in radio, working first in Cleveland, Ohio and later, throughout the Midwest. After World War II, Paar tried his hand at acting and comedy, frequently appearing on the Ed Sullivan Show. It was during an impressive stint as a guest host on Jack Benny's radio show that he caught the attention of NBC officials who eventually offered him his most well known role, host of The Tonight Show. Paar was the program's host from 1957 to 1962; after 1959 it was known as The Jack Paar Show. Audio Sourced: Jack Paar Show - Free OTR Shows.

He kept little of his personal life from viewers, and that included his wife, Miriam, and his daughter, Randy. He had Randy on the show frequently, spoke of her when she wasn’t there and showed home movies of her antics.
Television and radio pioneer Jack Paar has been called the most imitated personality in broadcasting. He virtually created the late-night talk show format. Paar helped launch the careers of such performers as Carol Burnett, Woody Allen and Liza Minnelli, but his guests weren’t limited to the glitterati. He discussed religion with Billy Graham, visited with Albert Schweitzer in Africa, and talked politics with Richard Nixon, all before the transfixed eyes of the American television audience. He was an engaging and sentimental personality, who gained the immediate appreciation of his audience and his guests. Of him, Bill Cosby said, I found him to be a very, very wonderful man, and intellectually funny - able to take a moment, realize it, and say.
On one hand, he played Willy Wonka, the kiddies' favourite; while on the other, he effortlessly pulled off a con-man role in The Ninth Gate. But most of us fondly remember him as the quirky yet cocky Jack Sparrow in The Pirates series. Here are some of his most memorable quotes as Captain Jack Sparrow. Harrrr matey, harrrrrrr!
