On Disco, Dickens and Dick York

Studio 54 and Larry Miller are practically synonymous. Or, wait, what’s the other one? Oh, yes, antonymous. That’s the one. Nevertheless, Larry not only spent time at Studio 54, but he worked there. This week, he regales us with tales from the “Disco Larry” era.



Show Summary

Hear stories about Halloween at Studio 54. Halloween in April? Are we six months late, or six months early? You be the judge. Then we get a description of an incredibly and admittedly uncool young Larry trying to be hep in New York City in the disco era. Larry gets down. He boogie oogie oogies. Eventually, he can’t boogie no more.

Get a load of our new segment, “Erratum,” where we correct misstatements of fact from previous episodes. Hilarity ensues. During said segment, we clear Dick York’s good name — almost thoroughly.

Then Larry talks about how annoying it is when reporters and anchors try to pronounce names with proper foreign dialects. Plus, he tells about begrudgingly taking several gigs as an insult comic and trying to do schtick in front of a man and woman, who were, shall we say, otherwise preoccupied with matters of nature.

Quote of the week:

    “Nothing, nothing, nothing, Indianapolis. Then nothing, nothing, nothing, Baltimore. Then nothing, nothing, nothing, Memphis.”
