Josh Mills on Ernie Kovacs

The Bob Cesca Show presented by show

Summary: January 23, 2019 would've been Ernie Kovacs' 100th birthday. Ernie invented sketch comedy for television in the 1950s and 60s, taking full advantage of TV as a visual format, unlike many shows of his era. He was also the host of the Tonight Show for the better part of a year, and if you like subversive TV sketch comedy, much of the credit goes to Ernie for paving the way for not only David Letterman, but Monty Python, SNL, and so many other legendary shows and performers. To honor Ernie's life and work today, my guest is Josh Mills from Josh is not only an Ernie Kovacs historian but he's also the son of Edie Adams, Ernie's second wife
