Host Maggi McNellis

Note: Carl Reiner remembered the show. The room was set up like a nightclub. There were people sitting at a table,
and she would come over and talk to you. It was half an interview show and then you would get up and do something.
There was no nightclub like that in the world. They paid you $125, which seems like a lot for five minutes' work,
but it really wasn't because a lot of people were seeing it, and you were ruining your act for club dates.
