"Important" - John Hodgman, The Daily Show
worked with him in 1980 at the Diplomat Hotel in south Florida -- the hotel's attempt at cashing in on the comedy club craze.They called it the Comedy Corner and teamed Eddie with two young comics.The Miami audiences loved his patented nostalgia-for-the-old-days shtick.Indeed, I still remember his killer hunk, the "brown soap" and Boraxo gag he does in the Sullivan clip.I remember thinking "That's not even a joke."Eddie and the audience didn't pay much attention to the young comics.We were forced on him and and I remember him not being very cordial.Wasn't just generational, but clearly a stylistic shift in material.He did know his audience, though.
wow -- not a chuckle in sight! Stupefying!
