The Colgate Variety Hour, also sometimes called The Colgate Comedy Hour,
is an American variety show produced by Colgate-Palmolive-Peet and
aired on the channel NBC. A number of famous figures such as Charles
Heston, Eddie Cantor, and Frank Sinatra hosted The Colgate Comedy Hour
for its ten seasons, helping to introduce the comedy segments that made
up the bulk of the show. Later on, The Colgate Comedy Hour was renamed
The Colgate Variety Hour to acknowledge an increase in music and other
non-comedy segments in the show.
