A President's Day Special

  • Feb 17, 2014 · 12:00 PM

The remarkable (Jackie) Moms Mabley performing Abraham, Martin and John on the Merv Griffin show; August 16th, 1969 ... (a big hit that year). The reference to Bobby is, of course, to Robert F. Kennedy, assassinated just one year earlier.

Coincidentaly, August 16th, 1969 was the 2nd day of the Woodstock Music & Art Fair. One month earlier, Apollo 11 was launched toward the moon, and one week earlier the Mason family murders took place.

    Can anyone identify the gentleman sitting next to Moms?

      That's Arthur Treacher. He was to Merv Griffin what Ed McMahon was to Johnny Carson. Cheers.
