Every year for the last 30 years Chabad has had a fund-raising telethon. This year's edition was hosted by Larry King, and was broadcast live from Los Angeles. Usually it's in November, but this year they did it on August 30. We found some of the best clips from this telethon and we'll share them with you in the coming weeks.
King celebrated the 30th anniversary by introducing some of the classic moments from previous shows. Today we're sharing a series of doubletalk language bits by veteran comedian Sid Caesar in French, German, Italian, and Japanese from Chabad telethons in 1991, 1993, and 1995. In these skits, Caesar, now 88, was interviewed by Jan Murray, one of television's first stand-up comics, who died in 2006.
