The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson - Late Night with David Letterman - with guest Albert Brooks - Footage Offline 6/06/08

Here we have a pair of Albert Brooks appearances. One on Late Night with David Letterman in 1985 and the other on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in 1991. Albert Brooks, brother of Super Dave Osborne, was also the son of Parkyarkarkus, a comedic character on the old Eddie Cantor radio show.

Follow this link to listen to some of his classic comedy LP, Comedy Minus One on The Generation Exploitation Podcast.

Albert Brooks' real name is Albert Einstein, Super Dave Osborne's real name is Bob Einstein, and their father's real name was Harry Einstein. Probably the craziest thing about Albert and Bob's show business father was his death. He died in the greatest old timey showbiz way imaginable. In 1958 he succumbed to a heart attack at a Friar's Club Roast of Lucille Ball. He sat at the dais next to Milton Berle and collapsed into Berle's lap. Now that's showbiz, baby.
