Here he talks with Dick Cavett, the host of The Dick Cavett Show, which was a late-night talk-show home for top rock bands and comedy legends, such as Groucho Marx, Jack Benny, Bob Hope, and countless others.

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.
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.
