This clip made me laugh. Watch for when Crazy Guggenheim and Joe discuss the movie The Hustler. I love it when Crazy says he remembers the guy who played Minnesota Fats used to be on the Art Carney show. lol Funny stuff.


The Jackie Gleason show is a series of TV shows that ran in various forms from 1952 to 1970.  The style was vaudevillian, often recorded in front of live audiences in theaters.  In this video Jackie Gleason portrays his recurring character of Joe The Bartender and Crazy Guggenheim played by Frank Fontaine who, in his private life never drank.
