CNN's 'The History of Comedy' Is Funny How?
Huffington Post - 9 days
President Donald Trump derides CNN as fake news. Does that mean "The History of Comedy," an eight-part documentary series premiering on the network Thurs. Feb. 9, is fake jokes? No, this is the real deal; a deep dive into a century of one-liners, pratfalls, and social commentary; of vaudeville, burlesque and nightclubs, of stand-up, satire and silliness. As the title of the first episode, "F***ing Funny," indicates, don't expect the decorum of Ken Burns' "The Civil War," or a strict chronology for that matter. Of the first three episodes viewed, each is more about context, how we got from Lenny Bruce to Louis C.K., from Jean Carroll (forgotten today but an acknowledged inspiration to Lily Tomlin) to Sarah Silverman, and from how comedians take their life into their own hands every time they go on stage, as Larry David observes in episode three, to what Maria Bamford celebrates as "the triumph of a good joke." "It's about how comedians work, the process, and who broke b ...

Seasons Of Light: A New CD Illuminates The Joys Of The Holiday Season
Huffington Post - 2 months
Fifteen years ago, Essential Voices USA music director and conductor Judith Clurman commissioned composer Stephen Schwartz (Wicked) and lyricist Steve Young to write a Chanukah piece. Although their song, "We are Lights," was performed at the 2001 Lincoln Center Tree Lighting ceremony and broadcast on TV, it was never recorded. Clurman was waiting for the right choral arranger. She finally found him in Ryan Nowlin. Now "The Chanukah Song (We are Lights)" is on Seasons of Light, the New York City-based chorus' latest CD, released on November 18th and produced by David Frost with Lee Musiker on the piano. One listen and it's clear that Nowlin's arrangement was worth waiting for. The result is a beautiful blend of voices, and the vocal lines dance like the Chanukah lights themselves. He also created an a cappella section with the voices layering on top of each other, one of the most thrilling moments in the piece, especially for me as a singer--I'll sing it this weekend with Essential ...

An Impossible Dream -- Reflections on My Campaign for President
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Over Christmas in 2009, I went to my brother's home in Hawaii to discuss my idea to run for President of the United States with my family. The reactions were mostly that of surprise, but generally favorable. I returned home to Los Angeles exactly six years ago this month to prepare for a February exploratory trip to Washington, DC, New York and then a week in New Hampshire to "test the waters" for a possible run. I hired my friend Brian Wilson to help put the trip together and get my campaign underway. I had been a Republican political consultant for 30 years, learning from the master himself, veteran GOP consultant Bill Roberts. I joined Bill at the Dolphin Group and went on to run dozens of campaigns during my career. I had worked on nine presidential campaigns, including roles as a senior consultant helping President's Ronald Reagan, Gerald Ford and George H. W. Bush. I knew politics inside out, but I was gay and had not come out publicly until California's Proposition 8 ...

Laugh On

I was raised with laughter. My parents' house was always filled with comedians, dancers, actors and writers. My Mother was a ballerina, and danced with The Royal Ballet Company in London."Laughter is not at all a bad beginning for a friendship,and is by far the best ending for one." OSCAR WILDE I learned to laugh young from the best in the business. Eric Sykes, Tommy Cooper, Norman Wisdom, Hattie Jacques, Spike Milligan, and Peter Sellers. In 1968 however I discovered a new breed of comedian, a group that'd recently graduated from Cambridge and would eventually become Monty Python's Flying Circus in 1969. A year earlier David Frost produced a TV show called "HOW TO IRRITATE PEOPLE" written by Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graham Chapman, John Cleese, and Marty Feldman, and starring Connie Booth, Michael Palin and John Cleese. I remember roaring with laughter when I watched sketches like "The Car Salesman" and "Airline Pilots," where Cleese and Chapman as the pilots start "reassuring" the ...

How do you tell the story of a complex man in a complex business? The details speak for themselves. Bobby Susser is a family man. He lives in N.Y. He earns his daily bread as a songwriter having sold over five million albums in his career. His success must be measured in equal parts to his obvious songwriting talents, his business acumen and his love of family. Bobby Susser as a young Yankees fan. Bobby Susser was born in 1942, the son of middle class Jewish parents and raised in Brooklyn. A Yankees fan all his life, Susser's career began in 1961 when he and his boyhood friend Paul Simon, raised $300 and decided to produce a song that Simon had written. Paul introduced Bobby to the process of "record production," having acquired a working knowledge from his father, Lou Simon, a bass player, who did a good deal of studio work.

Spieth fires 62, Merritt goes one better to lead
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
(Reuters) - Jordan Spieth bounced back from a Masters hangover by firing a nine-under 62 on Friday, but fellow American Troy Merritt went one better with a record-tying 61 to take a four-shot lead at the RBC Heritage in South Carolina. Merritt made seven birdies on the back nine, closing with four in a row to match the course record round set by South African David Frost in 1994 for a 36-hole total of 12-under-par 130 at Harbour Town Golf Links. "I had my tempo down the stretch, especially with the irons," said Merritt, sporting a striking blue plaid shirt as he pursued his first PGA Tour title in his 86th start. "I plan to enjoy the moment, hit some good shots, not think about it too much and just add them up at the end of the day." Tied for second at eight-under 134 were defending champion Matt Kuchar (66) and John Merrick (65), with 2013 winner Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland (69), 2010 champion Jim Furyk (64) and Kevin Kisner (67) another shot away on 135.

The Beatles On Ed Sullivan? Heck, Just 170 Days Later, I Saw Them Live!
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Well, the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles exploding on our TV screens on February 9th, 1964, has come and gone. Those of us old enough to have been sitting in front of our TVs that night are sitting at our desks or standing at our bathroom sinks wondering where the hell the time has gone... That Sunday night on CBS had little impact on me, personally, other than the fact that I celebrated the 50th anniversary of my first guitar lesson this week. Ahem. And yes, I am among the lucky lucky lucky ones... I saw The Beatles live and in person. I was 11 years old. You ready to read all about it? Here we go... Thank You Thank You Thank You, Dad! During dinner, one night in June of 1964, out of the blue, my father announced that he'd bought tickets for The Beatles show in New York at the end of the summer. For an 11-year-old, whose life had been totally turned inside out earlier that year when The Beatles were on the Ed Sullivan Show, and on the radio ever since, this news was i ...

Interview: Kenney Jones, Drummer of Small Faces, Faces With Rod Stewart and The Who, Looks Back (and Forward)
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Small Faces were simply the best band I have ever been in or ever likely to be in. -- Kenney Jones, drummer for The Who, 1979-1989. A few weeks back, I interviewed Ian "Mac" McLagan, here on the Huffington Post, keyboardist for the Small Faces, Faces with Rod Stewart and The Rolling Stones. The folks who set up the interview at Charly Records, have just released an incredible Small Faces' box set called Here Comes The Nice, available exclusively at Amazon, and were so happy with my "Mac" chat, that they decided I should have a go at his surviving Small Face brother, drummer Kenney Jones. That was more than fine with me. These two men are undiluted heroes to me, members of one of rock's greatest bands of all time, Small Faces. [Trans-Atlantic beeps and books... phone is now ringing].

Bio-docs: Who Controls the Narrative?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
We are in the midst of a bumper crop of bio-docs: documentaries focused on single figures who have wound up on the wrong side of history and who seemingly want the chance to get their side of the story on the record. Obviously, there will be those who disagree with my assessment of the subjects of The World According to Dick Cheney, R.J. Cutler's portrait of the former vice president which played at Sundance at the beginning of the year before it aired on Showtime. The same folks will no doubt question my inclusion of Donald Rumsfeld on that list (he's the subject of Errol Morris' The Unknown Known, which screened at the Toronto Film Festival in September and which will be released in December). Or Henry Paulson, subject of Joe Berlinger's Hank: 5 Years from the Brink, which aired on Netflix in September. Fewer may have that problem with The Armstrong Lie, Alex Gibney's portrait of Lance Armstrong, which played Toronto and opens in November. The filmmakers themselves (with th ...

    More Details Hide Details Cunard said that the vessel had left Southampton for a ten-day cruise in the Mediterranean, ending in Rome. The then British Prime Minister David Cameron paid tribute, saying: "He could be—and certainly was with me—both a friend and a fearsome interviewer." Michael Grade commented: "He was kind of a television renaissance man. He could put his hand to anything. He could turn over Richard Nixon or he could win the comedy prize at the Montreux Golden Rose festival." On 13 March 2014, a service was held at Westminster Abbey, at which Frost was honoured with a memorial stone in Poets' Corner.

  • 2006
    Age 66
    Frost/Nixon was presented as a stage production in London in 2006, and on Broadway in 2007.
    More Details Hide Details The play was adapted into a Hollywood motion picture starring Michael Sheen as Frost and Frank Langella as Nixon, both reprising their stage roles. The film was directed by Ron Howard and released in 2008. It was nominated for five Golden Globe awards: Best Motion Picture Drama, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Screenplay and Best Original Score, and for five Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Editing.
    After having been in television for 40 years, Frost was estimated to be worth £200 million by the Sunday Times Rich List in 2006, a figure he considered a significant over-estimate in 2011.
    More Details Hide Details The valuation included the assets of his main British company and subsidiaries, plus homes in London and the country. Frost/Nixon was originally a play written by Peter Morgan, developed from The Nixon Interviews which Frost had conducted with Richard Nixon in 1977.
    Frost worked for Al Jazeera English, presenting a live weekly hour-long current affairs programme, Frost Over The World, which started when the network launched in November 2006.
    More Details Hide Details The programme regularly made headlines with interviewees such as Tony Blair, President Omar al-Bashir of Sudan, Benazir Bhutto and President Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua. The programme was produced by the former Question Time editor and Independent on Sunday journalist Charlie Courtauld. Frost was one of the first to interview the man who authored the Fatwa on Terrorism, Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri. During his career as a broadcaster Frost became one of Concorde's most frequent fliers, having flown between London and New York an average of 20 times per year for 20 years. In 2007, Frost hosted a discussion with Libya's leader Muammar Gaddafi as part of the Monitor Group's involvement in the country. In June 2010, Frost presented Frost on Satire, an hour-long BBC Four documentary looking at the history of television satire. Frost was the only person to have interviewed all eight British prime ministers serving between 1964 and 2014 (Harold Wilson, Edward Heath, James Callaghan, Margaret Thatcher, John Major, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and David Cameron) and all seven US presidents in office between 1969 and 2008 (Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush).

    More Details Hide Details For a time it ran on BSB before moving to BBC 1. Frost hosted Through the Keyhole, which ran on several UK channels from 1987 until 2008 and also featured Loyd Grossman.

  • 1983
    Age 43
    On 19 March 1983, Frost married Lady Carina Fitzalan-Howard, daughter of the 17th Duke of Norfolk.
    More Details Hide Details Over the next five years, they had three sons and for many years lived in Chelsea, with their weekend home at Michelmersh Court in Hampshire.
    Frost on Sunday began in September 1983 and continued until the station lost its franchise at the end of 1992.
    More Details Hide Details
    Frost was one of the "Famous Five" who launched TV-am in February 1983 but, like LWT in the late 1960s, the station began with an unsustainable "highbrow" approach.
    More Details Hide Details Frost remained a presenter after restructuring.
  • THIRTIES
  • 1979
    Age 39
    Frost was an organiser of the Music for UNICEF Concert at the United Nations General Assembly in 1979.
    More Details Hide Details Ten years later, he was hired as the anchor of the new American tabloid news program Inside Edition. He was dismissed after only three weeks, due to poor ratings. It seems he was "considered too high-brow for the show's low-brow format." ABC News reporter Bill O'Reilly was recruited as his replacement.
    Following the 1979 Iranian Revolution Frost was the last person to interview Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the deposed Shah of Iran.
    More Details Hide Details The interview took place in the Contadora Island in Panama in January 1980, and was broadcast by ABC in the United States on 17 January.
  • 1977
    Age 37
    He became known for his television interviews with senior political figures, among them The Nixon Interviews with former United States President Richard Nixon in 1977, which were adapted into a stage play and film.
    More Details Hide Details Frost was one of the "Famous Five" who were behind the launch of ITV breakfast station TV-am in 1983. For the BBC, he hosted the Sunday morning interview programme Breakfast with Frost from 1993 to 2005. He spent two decades as host of Through the Keyhole. From 2006 to 2012 he hosted the weekly programme Frost Over the World on Al Jazeera English and from 2012, the weekly programme The Frost Interview.
  • 1974
    Age 34
    Nixon, who had previously avoided discussing his role in the Watergate scandal which had led to his resignation as President in 1974, expressed contrition saying "I let the American people down and I have to carry that burden with me for the rest of my life".
    More Details Hide Details
    Frost interviewed heavyweight boxer Muhammad Ali at his training camp in Deer Lake, Pennsylvania in 1974, prior to The Rumble in the Jungle with George Foreman. During the interview, Ali remarked "Listen David, when I meet this man, if you think the world was surprised when Nixon resigned, wait till I whip Foreman's behind." In 1977 The Nixon Interviews, a series of five 90-minute interviews with former US President Richard Nixon, were broadcast.
    More Details Hide Details Nixon was paid $600,000 plus a share of the profits for the interviews, which had to be funded by Frost himself after the US television networks turned down the programme, describing it as "checkbook journalism". Frost's company negotiated its own deals to syndicate the interviews with local stations across the US and internationally, creating what Ron Howard described as "the first fourth network." Frost taped around 29 hours of interviews with Nixon over a period of four weeks.
  • 1972
    Age 32
    Frost was known for several relationships with high-profile women. In the mid-1960s, he dated British actress Janette Scott, between her marriages to songwriter Jackie Rae and singer Mel Tormé; in the early 1970s he was engaged to American actress Diahann Carroll; between 1972 and 1977 he had a relationship with British socialite Caroline Cushing; in 1981 he married Lynne Frederick, widow of Peter Sellers, but they divorced the following year.

    More Details Hide Details During this call, Frost revealed that he was working on a novel.
  • 1970
    Age 30
    His 1970 TV special, Frost on America, featured guests such as Jack Benny and Tennessee Williams.
    More Details Hide Details
  • TWENTIES
  • 1969
    Age 29
    From 1969 to 1972, Frost kept his London shows and fronted The David Frost Show on the Group W (U.S. Westinghouse Corporation) television stations in the United States.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1968
    Age 28
    In 1968 he signed a contract worth £125,000 to appear on American television in his own show on three evenings each week, the largest such arrangement for a British television personality at the time.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1967
    Age 27
    Frost, according to Kitty Muggeridge in 1967, had "risen without a trace."
    More Details Hide Details He was involved in the station's early years as a presenter. On 20 and 21 July 1969, during the British television Apollo 11 coverage, he presented David Frost's Moon Party for LWT, a ten-hour discussion and entertainment marathon from LWT's Wembley Studios, on the night Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. Two of his guests on this programme were British historian A. J. P. Taylor and entertainer Sammy Davis, Jr. Around this time Frost interviewed Rupert Murdoch whose recently acquired Sunday tabloid, the News of the World, had just serialised the memoirs of Christine Keeler, a central figure in the Profumo scandal of 1963. For the Australian publisher, this was a bruising encounter, although Frost said that he had not intended it to be. Murdoch confessed to his biographer Michael Wolff that the incident had convinced him that Frost was "an arrogant bastard, and a bloody bugger".
    Frost was a member of a successful consortium, including former executives from the BBC, which bid for an ITV franchise in 1967.
    More Details Hide Details This became London Weekend Television, which began broadcasting in July 1968. The station began with a programming policy which was considered 'highbrow' and suffered launch problems with low audience ratings and financial problems. A September 1968 meeting of the Network Programme Committee, which made decisions about the channel's scheduling, was particularly fraught, with Lew Grade expressing hatred of Frost in his presence.
  • 1966
    Age 26
    More successful was The Frost Report, broadcast between 1966 and 1967.
    More Details Hide Details The show launched the television careers of John Cleese, Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett, who appeared together in the Class sketch. Frost signed for Rediffusion, the ITV weekday contractor in London, to produce a "heavier" interview-based show called The Frost Programme. Guests included Sir Oswald Mosley and Rhodesian premier Ian Smith. His memorable dressing-down of insurance fraudster Emil Savundra, regarded as the first example of "trial by television" in the UK, led to concern from ITV executives that it might affect Savundra's right to a fair trial. Frost's introductory words for his television programmes during this period, "Hello, good evening and welcome", became his catchphrase and were often mimicked.
  • 1963
    Age 23
    Following a pilot episode on 10 November 1963, the 30-minute US series, also featuring Frost, ran on NBC from 10 January 1964 to May 1965.
    More Details Hide Details In 1985, Frost produced and hosted a television special in the same format, That Was the Year That Was, on NBC. Frost fronted various programmes following the success of TW3, including its immediate successor, Not So Much a Programme, More a Way of Life, which he co-chaired with Willie Rushton and poet P. J. Kavanagh. Screened on three evenings each week, this series was dropped after a sketch was found to be offensive to Catholics and another to the British royal family.
    More sombrely, on 23 November 1963, a tribute to the assassinated President John F. Kennedy, an event which had occurred the previous day, formed an entire edition of That Was the Week That Was.
    More Details Hide Details An American version of TW3 ran after the original British series had ended.
    Frost visited the United States during the break between the two series of TW3 in the summer of 1963 and stayed with the producer of the New York production of Beyond The Fringe.
    More Details Hide Details Frost was unable to swim, but still jumped into the pool, and nearly drowned until he was saved by Peter Cook. At the memorial service for Cook in 1995, Alan Bennett recalled that rescuing Frost was the one regret Cook frequently expressed. For the first three editions of the second series in 1963, the BBC attempted to limit the team by scheduling repeats of The Third Man television series after the programme, thus preventing overruns. Frost took to reading synopses of the episodes at the end of the programme as a means of sabotage. After the BBC's Director General Hugh Greene instructed that the repeats should be abandoned, TW3 returned to being open-ended.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1958
    Age 18
    Frost studied at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge University, from 1958, graduating from the university with a Third in English.
    More Details Hide Details He was editor of both the university's student paper, Varsity, and the literary magazine Granta. He was also secretary of the Footlights Drama Society, which included actors such as Peter Cook and John Bird. During this period, Frost appeared on television for the first time in an edition of Anglia Television's Town And Gown, performing several comic characters. "The first time I stepped into a television studio", he once remembered, "it felt like home. It didn't scare me. Talking to the camera seemed the most natural thing in the world." According to some accounts, Frost was the victim of snobbery from the group with which he associated at Cambridge, which has been confirmed by Barry Humphries. Christopher Booker, while asserting that Frost's one defining characteristic was ambition, commented that he was impossible to dislike. According to the satirist John Wells, the Old Etonian actor Jonathan Cecil congratulated Frost around this time for "that wonderfully silly voice" he used while performing, but then discovered that it was Frost's real voice.
  • CHILDHOOD
  • 1939
    Born
    David Paradine Frost was born in Tenterden, Kent, on 7 April 1939, the son of a Methodist minister of Huguenot descent, the Rev. Wilfred John "W. J." Paradine Frost, and his wife, Mona (Aldrich); he had two elder sisters.
    More Details Hide Details While living in Gillingham, Kent, he was taught in the Bible class of the Sunday school at his father's church (Byron Road Methodist) by David Gilmore Harvey, and subsequently started training as a Methodist local preacher, which he did not complete. Frost attended Barnsole Road Primary School in Gillingham, then Gillingham Grammar School and finally – while residing in Raunds – Wellingborough Grammar School. Throughout his school years he was an avid football and cricket player, and was offered a contract with Nottingham Forest F.C. For two years before going to university he was a lay preacher following his witnessing of an event presided over by the Christian evangelist Billy Graham.
