See Elayne and an all star cast! Twenty great comics in one night, celebrating the birthday of this wonderful club that we all love, The Comedy and Magic Club.
In 1966, my husband Bill Siddons was hitchhiking in Hollywood, with a gas can, since he’d run out. A car comes zooooming past, screeches to a halt, backs up and picks him up. It’s James Garner (be still my heart). Bill, always a speedy driver, says, “Nice driving!” James says, “Thanks. I just finished making this movie, ‘Grand Prix’, and they really taught us how to drive. I’m lovin’ it”. Years later James was eating at Musso & Frank’s in Hollywood. Bill walked by the table, deciding not to disturb him. James looked up and said, “You have gas in the car?” What a great guy.
The “Jim” Bill is referring to in the photo is Jim Morrison, not Garner. (Lynn Krieger, Bill, and Robby Krieger, on the road with The Doors, 1970.)
The explosively incredible comedian Iliza Shlesinger hosts her popular podcast, “Truth and Iliza“, and Elayne gets to grumble.
