Over the years, many talented performers in comedy appeared on The Merv Griffin Show, and dozens of these appearances have now turned into treasures to be shared and enjoyed. Many of the most famous comics who appeared on the show were new at the time, and the show was a great platform to share their talent. From 1963 through 1986, over 5000 guests appeared on The Merv Griffin Show.
Here on the blog, we’ll be regularly featuring some of the most memorable guests who appeared on the show.
This month, we feature a 1984 stand-up performance by Bill Maher (poking fun at the politics of the day), Steve Martin himself appearing with Merv in 1979, and an early performance by Jerry Seinfeld from 1981. We encourage you to share and enjoy these classic appearances, and leave comments to tell us what you think.
