Happy Birthday! (2/3/05)
In the 60's he tried to compete against Johnny Carson's Tonight Show, and lost.
-but- of all the Late night talk show hosts (Steve Allen, Carson and Jack Paar) he's the only one still alive.
He was the least successful member of The Rat Pack.
-but- of all the male Rat Pack members (Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. & Peter Lawford) he's the only one still alive.
So, here's a "hanging in there" Happy Birthday to.....
The laid back former talk show host is 87 today.
