  • Notes

    • The fun tone for this episode was set as soon as Steve Allen walked through the curtain. He ran the panel completely through the ringer, although Larry did come close to figuring out Steve's line. The next contestant also had the panel stumped, although they did identify that her act involved implements. However, the real highlight of the night was Jerry Lewis. Jerry was on the show to promote his latest film "Three on a Couch," which he directed, produced and starred in. Co-starring with him in the 1966 film were Janet Leigh and James Best, who would go on to play the bumbling "Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane" in the 1979-1985 series "The Dukes of Hazzard." Jerry also mentioned his son Gary and his band, The Playboys. Gary Lewis and The Playboys had a string of hits from 1965 to 1966, beginning with the million-selling #1 hit "This Diamond Ring," which was written by Al Kooper. Other hits included "Count Me In," "Everybody Loves a Clown" and "She's Just My Style." As of 2004, Gary still performs with various versions of The Playboys. - Sargebri (2004)
