for you tonight. actress shelley winters is with us tonight. [ applause ] >> a very funny young comedian, tom parks is here. [ applause ] >> i don't know what the official name of this lady would be. she is a nose flutist. she plays a flute-- >> extremely well-- >> with her nose. i guess it would be the technical term for that? >> ridiculous. [ laughter, applause ] >> abby jay. she's here, too, so stay where you are. [ applause ]
>> okay, we're back. >> friday night crowd. beautiful. >> thank you. you look really sharp, tonight. [ applause ] >> thank you. >> i just threw this old rag on, from my closet. now, first of all, i've got something to clear up. i did a joke last night on the show about spraying for med flies. we have a med fly problem, i guess. 36 med flies - they've discovered. and they're spraying 22 square miles in los angeles, and according to the paper, they're spraying with malathion, which is toxic, and they suggested
well, you begin to wonder, right? anyway, i got a call today from jara currey, from the california department of food and agriculture. apparently, that joke last night started to panic people. and she says don't panic, folks. it is the protein that carries the poison that spots the car. it doesn't strip the paint off. in other words, it apparently leaves little spots on the car. it does not strip the paint. so, in other words, it's safe, i guess, on humans. wouldn't it spot humans, too? [ laughter ] >> anyway, it's not a dangerous thing, so if you happen to be out and you see a plane come over, dropping malathion, just stand there and -- >> enjoy it. >> but we did not mean to panic people. anyway, the air is so bad out here today, 15 of the flies turned themselves in. [ laughter, applause ]
i guess if you get a med fly infestation, it devours the citrus crop in california, and it only takes a few of them to get going, because they're very prolific. i mean, you get one med fly, and apparently, they lay - anybody know how many eggs they lay? billions and billions of eggs. [ laughter ] >> as carl sagan would say. you probably know about - oh, by the way, we have shelley winters on the show tonight, comedian tom parks and abby jay, who has a ridiculous act. she's called, actually, a nose flautist, or is flutist correct? >> flautist. >> flautist. alright. she's going to be with us. do you know about the los angeles raiders situation? we have a football team called the los angeles raiders. apparently, they may have been lured away from the los angeles coliseum by the city of irwindale, california. now, irwindale, california is about 25 miles east of los angeles, as i understand it.
>> no. >> they gave the raiders $10 million up front, as an advance, i guess, against $150 million, to be gotten back in stadium revenues. $150 million. now, we've been doing this show in burbank since 1972. we got to wondering. burbank's been nice to us. but look what they're going to give the raiders. $10 million up front. so, we thought we'd just check into it, and so we sent a camera crew down to irwindale, to kind of check it out. i don't know if you know this or not, but irwindale is the gravel capital of southern california, and they plan to build a stadium, i guess, in one of the gravel pits down there. so we took a camera, seeing, maybe it's the future home for "the tonight show." so watch the monitor. this is actual film, as you will see here. now, this is the main thoroughfare,
but the locals refer to it as a maintenance free forest. [ laughter ] >> now, there you are right there. that is the gravel pit, and that is apparently where the new stadium is going to go if it comes through. we don't know yet. so, what we did - i personally did not go down there, but i did send a very lifelike cardboard impersonation, and we took the desk down, and set it in the middle of the gravel pit, just to see how it would look. [ laughter, applause ] >> you could open the show, from the gravel pit of southern california, it's "the tonight show." >> there's johnny. >> now, this new stadium seats about, i guess - how much? >> 60,000. >> 60,000 people. now, can you imagine a studio audience of 60,000 people?
anyway, we thought we would call the gentleman, and check into this a little further. now, what did i do with the guys name here? okay. he is standing by on the phone. it's a legitimate call. his name is xavier hermoseo. and he is irwindale's public relations consultant. he negotiated, apparently, the raiders deal. is that a firm deal, already? the 10 million is firm. no refund. >> no, they keep that, no matter what. [ laughter ] >> i've had other deals like that, where 10 million has gone, with no refund. [ laughter, applause ] >> okay, now, he knew we were going to call him. we called him and said would you be in your office? i'm going to chat with him. his name is xavier hermoseo, and i'm just going to dial his number here, directly
[ busy signal ] [ laughter ] >> oh, come on, now. we've got to be kidding. he's probably talking to al davis, right now. [ laughter ] >> maybe i dialed wrong. oh, we have two numbers here. i've got a back up number. [ phone dialing ] >> he's probably negotiating with ted koppel. [ phone dialing ] [ ringing ] >> there we go. [ ringing ] >> hello? >> i'd like to speak to mr. hermoseo, please. >> hold on, please. >> thank you. he must be on the other line. we've got to act fast on this. obviously,
>> hello, this is xavier. >> mr. hermoseo? >> yes, sir. >> how are you? >> i'm fine, how are you? >> this is johnny carson. i'm calling from "the tonight show." >> oh, what a pleasure. >> can we hear mr. hermoseo in the audience all right? we've got you on the speaker, here, to our "tonight show" audience. >> okay. >> how are things in irwindale tonight? >> rock solid. [ laughter, applause ] >> that's right. i forgot. irwindale is a stones throw from another stones throw, isn't it? how many gravel pits does irwindale have? >> too many. about 17. >> about 17? >> yes, sir. >> how did you manage to get al davis to come down to irwindale? >> well, we gave him an offer he couldn't refuse. >> gave him an offer he couldn't refuse? now, you advanced him $10 million? >> $10 million. biggest check i've ever seen. >> how many people live in the city of irwindale? >> 1040. [ laughter ] >> 1040, and you came up with $10 million?
they didn't all chip in, did they? >> we're the fastest growing city in the state of california, in terms of assessed valuation. >> oh, i see. so 1040 people, and you gave mr. davis a $10 million check. >> that's correct. >> now, if they decide not to move there, what happens? >> he's $10 million richer. >> that's it? now, let me ask you this, now. what inducements could you give us to move "the tonight show" toin >> well, that's tough. let me think, here. >> could we use one of the gravel pits? do you have any studio space? >> oh, sure. we have a lot of space. but you're not exactly al davis. [ boos ] >> well, you're not tom bradley, either. [ laughter, applause ] >> tell me a little bit about irwindale. >> irwindale is about
>> it's 20 miles from los angeles. it's about 28 years old. >> 28 years old. we have your picture up on the screen now, mr. hermoseo. >> nice of you to do that. >> okay. >> it's a primarily industrial and commercial city and we have been bringing big business to town. a major brewery -- >> there's a brewery nearby? [ applause ] >> how close would that be to the gravel pit? >> eight lanes away. >> eight lanes away? >> just across the freeway. >> just across the freeway. good, okay. ed, you're in. so, you've got a major brewery there. how about hotel space, for our guests? >> pardon me? >> how about hotel space, when we fly in guests for "the tonight show?" where would we put them up? >> we don't have any hotels. >> no hotels. well, that's a problem, right there. >> we'll build some. >> you'll build a hotel.
[ laughter ] >> no gas station. well, the people drive there for the football game and they run out of gas, what's the situation there? >> i think we'll put a gas station in by the time -- >> might put a gas station in. so you've got 1088 people. when is this stadium going to start? >> we'll start construction of the stadium in november. >> in november. now, what's that going to cost? >> oh, about $80 million. >> about $80 million. now, can i ask you a personal question? how do you raise that money with 1044 people? >> through incremental tax increases. [ laughter ] >> oh, that's a big tax bite. >> we've done situations like, we sold the brewery people 227 acres for a dollar. >> oh, i see. >> and they built a $392 million brewery on it. >> well, that sounds pretty good. now, the people of irwindale - do they get tickets to the games? >> yes. >> oh, they do? >> absolutely. >> everyone in irwindale
to all the raiders games? >> yes, sir. >> that's not a bad deal. >> not a bad deal. we also guarantee them an education. >> also guaranteed an education. well, good for you. it's nice talking with you, and maybe we can follow up with a letter, or something, and if you can give us some inducements, we'll certainly consider coming down there. in case we do come down there, you know, i do jokes about burbank on "the tonight show," right? and so, we just wrote up some sample jokes about irwindale, to try out. ug >> you tell me how these might go. welcome to irwindale. home of the ishtar amusement park. xavier? >> if this marriage is going to work, and you know all about marriages. >> he said, if this marriage is gonna work, and you know all about marriages. how about, they're having a big parade in irwindale, today. salute to driveways.
machinery. [ laughter ] >> well, xavier, it's nice talking with you. i wish you good luck. >> thank you very much. i understand you played to rave reviews yesterday. >> i beg your pardon? >> i understand you played to rave reviews, yesterday, in the pits. >> yeah, we did come down there. we did a little film and went to the signing party. >> it was a little flat, you know? >> a little flat. that was a cut out. it wasn't actually me, xavier. no, you see, that wasn't me. that was a cardboard cut out. i was in irwindale, yesterday. anyway, xavier, it's nice talking with you, and good luck. thank you, sir. [ applause ] >> we're going to move. >> i don't know. going to have a tax increase. 1044 people. okay, we'll be right back. shelley winters is here, so stay where you are.
[ music, applause ] >> okay. it is almost un-american to say your mother is a bad cook, but you covered it very well. i guess we're brought up to say that mothers can do no wrong, and sometimes they don't cook. >> well, she was a nurse. when you have a nurse for a mother, than what you get from most other mothers. this scar that i have on the heel of my hand - i was about 13 when i got that. i walked into the house with my hand cupped full of blood. my mom looked up from the couch and said, "don't spill that on the rug." [ laughter ] nothing phased her. >> how did you get started? >> i was living in atlanta, and there was a small club there. i went out on a date. a woman got me
i didn't really know much about it. i had never been in a club before and i sat in the front row watching harry chapin perform. in between songs, he'd tell stories, and they were really funny. i turned to this girl at some point in the show and i said, "i think i could do that." she looked at me and said, "i think you could, too." [ laughter ] >> and that was that. >> yeah. i went right into show business. >> are you married? >> no, i can't gett do you want to go out again? i'm on the road about 250, 300 days a year. >> you meet a lot of young ladies in this entertainment business. >> yeah, i can't get past do you want to go out again? >> young ladies like comedians. you ever notice that? >> they do. but they like musicians better. see, they think musicians are sensitive.
>> yeah, right. and they've got instruments, and they write songs that have got the women's names in them. you can't write a joke about a woman, you know? you can't say, "i wrote this for you." [ laughter ] >> she was so fat, that -- >> right, that doesn't work. i wrote that for you, baby. it doesn't work. >> do you do other things besides comedy? any other area? ti >> well, there's a lot of stuff going on. i've already done some commercials. i did a regional commercial in atlanta. it was a hand job. [ laughter ] >> that's what they call them. a hand model. >> that's right. hand's on camera. $235 to do this. now, i had to go down and audition for the hand job. i'm at the biggest advertising agency in the country, walter thompson. there's a guy

( laughter )

e we trust terri. bless you. well, terri is a lovely girl and i know we'll just have tons of fun. not too much fun. ( laughter ) well, come on, mother. sam, we'd better be going. these kids probably want to get back to whatever they were doing. i'll bet they do. and sam, out. out, out. out, out, out, out, out, out. ta-ta. bye! good-bye, lolita. nice to meet you. sam: bye-bye. ( laughter ) well, that's quite a family you have. oh, thanks. especially your sister. are they going to keep her, or... jack... i was only kidding. oh! here, let me get this out of the way. somebody could damage themselves. ( laughter ) terri, did you see the look on jack's face when he noticed how big your dad was? yeah, i always had a lot of first dates
i had that problem. was your dad big, too? no, i couldn't get second dates. listen, i'll go empty more of the closet so you'll have some room. okay. i'm going to go through these boxes. well... hello! you're here. they said you were sharp. ( laughter ) still unpacking, huh? yep. everything's a mess. if you want jack, he's in there. well, no big hurry. so, what do you think of my buddy jack? oh, i think he's really nice. the best-- you'll see when you get to know him better. yeah. of course... jack was a lot more fun before... before what? no... never mind. i should never have brought it up. before june. before june?
she's a girl jack was crazy about. oh. she dropped him just like that. oh, oh, that's terrible! he never got over her. and he seems so happy-go-lucky. well, that's jack-- laughing on the outside but on the inside, crying like a baby. oh, poor jack. yeah. since then, the man has lost all confidence in himself. well, isn't there anything that can be done? i don't think so. unless... no. unless what? no, forget it. it wouldn't have worked anyway. no, tell me-- maybe i can help. i was just thinking-- if you could just boost his ego a little bit. how? i don't know. maybe just be extra nice to him. really? some tender, loving care... a little stroking. what about janet?
i mean, janet isn't very good at that sort of thing. you're more sensitive. after all, you are a nurse. you understand about... pain. ( laughter ) oh... you leave it to me. good. janet: terri! oh-- coming! excuse me. hey, larry, what's happening? hey, pal, remember the other night when you kept me from hitting on that little redhead? yeah, i told you her boyfriend's a wrestler. you saved my life. forget it, pal. do me a favor sometime. i just did, you little devil. ( laughter ) did larry leave? yeah. what did he want? i don't know. oh, he just came by to say hi. i think he's really nice. oh... but not as nice as you, jack.
terri: no, i mean it. and besides being nice i think you're very good-looking. well... ( laughter ) and you're not even aware of it. aware of what? oh, good-looking? me? no, i'm not. that's just what i mean. you know, most guys are so conceited. don't you hate that? i can't stand conceit in a guy. oh... oh, no... there are some times i don't even want to see a mirror. you know, i just get up and there... then other times, usually at night, i... ( laughter ) what? did you put her up to that? what?! ( mimicking ): you're so cute. oh, i didn't even hear that. terri: jack, could you help in the bedroom? you betcha. aren't you forgetting
e-e-everything? that's right. i want to get to know you. i mean, really know you. it all started in a little town in arizona. ( laughter ) mommy and daddy met on a church picnic. i'll be right back. where are you going? upstairs-- it is terri's first night why are you worried about terri? isn't jack up there with her? yes. well, come on, it's your turn. ( clears throat ) "moly"? you're right, mr. furley, probably not a word. i'll dash upstairs, check my dictionary. get back here!
but i'm not. "moly" is a word. it is? yeah, i use it all the time. "holy moly." ( laughter ) "guaca-moly." ( laughter ) go ahead, take your score. my mother didn't raise many stupid children. there's just you and your brother, bart, right? ( laughter ) and then during the third grade my dog cocoa ran away. oh, that must have been a rough time. hey, i've had a lot rougher. ( gasps ) are you thinking of june? no, cocoa ran away in september. ( laughter ) then after third grade...
well, you know, terri i don't know that many girls. what's the matter with your arm? oh, my arm? no, it's just an old navy injury, see? and my back tightens up on me every so often. oh, i've got just the thing for that. come right over here and lie right down. lie down right there. ( laughter ) well, if you insist. this-a way. you really are tight. oh, yeah? boy, am i going to loosen you up. oh, great. ( screams ) wait, wait, wait! ( banging ) what's that? i'll go see. oh, no, you don't. we're going to finish this game if we have to play all night. all night? hold it, mr. furley. hear that? no, what? big mosquito. oh, right there. where? mr. furley
got him! look at that. you've messed up the whole game. darn. i guess we'll just have to quit with you 50 points ahead. means you win. oh. what a shame. i guess it is the only fair thing to do. yeah, bye! hey, you don't have to rush off. there's another game going on upstairs. how you feel? just peachy. oh, yeah. that's much looser. and how does the back feel? oh, it feels wonderful. fantastic! hi, janet. hi, jan... janet, hi. may i see you in the kitchen? she was massaging my neck. i'll do it.
do you mind telling me just what you were doing out there? janet, janet, i was an innocent bystander. she had her arms around me. and you had your arms around her. well, i didn't want to be rude. jack! it's not my fault women can't keep their hands off me. it's something i've learned to live with. i'll just have to go talk to terri. i'll go with you. sit! janet... stay! terri! uh... terri? come on over here. come on over here and sit down. okay. i'd like to talk to you. about what? about the three of us living here together. everything's all right, isn't it? no, it isn't. it isn't? mmm... let me put it to you this way. if one-third of the three of us had something going on
ld get kind of sticky around here for the third third of the three of us. do you get my drift? oh, sure. and if you've got something going with jack it won't bother me at all. oh, thanks... no! i'm talking about you. me?! jack said you couldn't keep your hands off him. ( laughter ) and you believed him? not anymore. oh, excuse me. no problem.

( shouts ) ow! i'm sorry. how about some cold water for your finger? that's hot! is it? when i'm around you i just don't know what i'm doing. janet, will you keep that girl away from me? you're right, jack. she can't keep her hands off you. i don't understand. of all the egotistical... i just felt sorry for you. sorry? why would anybody feel sorry for me? oh, lots of reasons. ( laughter ) come on, go ahead, terri, go ahead.
about how jack lost his confidence because of june... june? who's june? that's the girlfriend you were crazy about. i don't have a girlfriend june. not since she dropped you. anyway, with jack needing help and you not doing anything... me not doing anything? because you're not good at it. what?! that's what i heard. jack! don't look at me. well, then who? yeah, who did you get this story from? jack, there's a hot-tub party across the street and we're invited. come on! it'll be great. bring your robe and a towel. whoever made up that story has to be lower than dirt. someone with a disgustingly sick sense of humor. and someone with absolutely no scruples whatsoever.
i've got to get to that bubble party... larry! about that favor you were going to do for me. you can just forget that, jack. thank me later. no, i want to thank you now, larry. janet: no, no, no, no, no, jack, please. terri and i would like to thank larry for you. that's right. after everything he's done to make my first night here so memorable.
