Kutsher's Comedians Revisited: Buddy Hackett Cracks Up Johnny Carson


Continuing our nostalgic series of famous comedians who got their start or performed at Kutsher's Country Club, the Catskills resort that was sold last month, we found a funny clip of Buddy Hackett on the Johnny Carson show some years back. 

While this is not strictly speaking a stand-up comedy routine, Hackett gets some good laughs from Carson and his audience from their conversation about turkeys, his mother's cooking, what his mother considered treyf, skiing in Colorado, and a variation of an old Jewish joke about a lady with a Yiddish accent and a photofinisher and a hat. We ran another version of the joke last year as told by Old Jews Telling Jokes actress Suzanne Shepherd.

Enjoy!
