    "I Want My 99 Cents Back!"

    It seemed like a "can't miss" selection. Martin Short, the funniest man on the planet being interviewed by Dick Cavett, a brilliant interviewer, wit and raconteur. But Mr. Cavett seemed to forgot that he was the interviewer, not the interviewee. He acted as if he were on the stage to amuse Mr. Short with his own anecdotes.
    It would have been so easy to let a brilliant comic like Short loose with all his incredible energy and characters. Everyone would have gone home thinking how brilliant Short was and what a wonderful job Cavett did showing off Short's brilliance. Best of all, I wouldn't be writing this review.
    But instead Cavett blocked Short at every moment, recounting stories about entertainers of an era long before Short's (Milton Berle, Fred Allen, Richard Loo?!)
    Let's be fair and say Mr. Cavett was having a bad evening, or he and Mr. Short didn't have any chemistry. It happens. But that's no excuse for selling this debacle to Audible's subscribers.
    I assure you I will survive very well without my 99 cents, but I should have it back just on principle..

    "Fun and Funny"
    Would you listen to Martin Short with Dick Cavett at the 92nd Street Y again? Why?

    I really enjoyed this banter between two very funny and very smart people. Cavett does get a bit self indulgent and he tells a couple of the same stories that he told in one of his book, though they are good stories and I actually enjoyed hearing them again.

    "...a little alarming"

    This was disappointing. Short comes off well, but Cavett, who is usually such a wonderful interviewer, indulges in a non-stop, awkwardly self-referential name-drop fest. He also seems to be slurring his words, which is alarming -- I don't know what was causing it, but it actually made him sound a little impaired at times.
