Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - June 21, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa >' Mf) INC ucklcberiy A /Musical Adaptation WM**- —EXTRA— BUGS BUNNY Assonate Product* Novice Funnymen Debut on ‘Comedyworld’ Ii* Vernon Scott HOLLY WOOD (DFM) - ll '»n«* comedian is good, would 35 comics Im* better? Producer Greg Garrison will learn the answer by the end of summer Garrison, producer of "The Dean Martin Show" for a decade, is coming on strong tins summer with "Comedyworld", a crowd of funnymen plus film clips of the most revered comics of tin* past Lur III weeks, NHC viewers will see brash new comedians, many of them getting their first breaks, others who are moving up tin* success ladder and a few (Rich Little) who already have followings. I looked at 4(1(1 comics,” said the ruggedly handsome (larrison I traveled to New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston and London I wanted to see the new young talent iii familiar settings where they were doing their numbers for audiences Its inhibiting for a producer to sit down and ex ped a'comedian to be funny without an audience ” Martin Association Garrison is a bright, witty man himself. And after years of close personal association with Martin, he has a pretty fair idea of what is funny and what is riot Curiously, he doesn’t employ his own sense of humor to gauge the laugh-provoking po tential of prospects for his show "I try to determine whai will make an audience laugh,” In* said “The comedian or com edienne doesn’t have to make me laugh I’m unimportant. I listened to some rather wellknown comics and some youngsters who never ap peared before more than 20 people in their lives "None of them have 25 minutes of top material. Even the best pros find it hard to cover that span and be hilarious the whole time. But I taped each of the ones seen on the show for IO or 15 minutes to get from two to four minutes of good stuff. Peripheral Vision "I have great peripheral vision When I audition the kids I watch for the reaction of the people around me to see wha! they’re laughing at ” Weary of hearing viewers, network brass and sponsors complain about (fie dearth of new faces on tin* tube, Garrison is gambling on his finds. No one makes Garrison laugh more easily than Martin. But his taste also runs to Don nickles, the early Jackie Gleason, Dom DoLuiso and Phil Silvers in the old “Sgt Bilko” series "I’ve already completed all 111 shows," Garrison said "Now that we're on the air I have agents calling me wanting to get their clients a few minutes on the series Too late Ifs done. Next case.” Hosting the show are Jackie (looper, Barbara Feldon and Nipsey Bussell Trophy Lounge . presents this W 0 *' Sat.
