For most of us, Bob Hope was that kinda creaky guy who did awkward old-timey standup comedy while people like Steve Martin and Richard Pryor were changing the world.

When Dick Cavett allows you to hitch a ride on one of his conversational caravans, there's really no telling where you'll end up. In 50-plus years of professional conversationalism, the man has met and chatted up everyone from Aaron Sorkin to ZZ Top, so one anecdote can't help but lead to another, and then another, and pretty soon the narrative includes more characters than Day of the Locust.
