Nose-talgia: 1960s Variety, Danny Kaye-style

For an example of the kind of classic TV variety show entertainment that used to be a staple of U.S. television, here's a jazzy clip from The Danny Kaye Show, circa 1963 or so. I think you'll enjoy it!

Of course, variety isn't dead today, it's just morphed into something actually not even particularly different. Today's American Idol is just Ted Mack's Amateur Hour writ large, after all!
