Ed Sullivan was the ultimate American television impresario whose television show became the most successful and longest-running variety show in U.S broadcast history.

 We will journey with Ed from his early days as a sports and entertainment reporter and syndicated columnist, to his becoming the quintessential star maker of the 50’s and the 60’s.  The Ed Sullivan Show included every type of entertainer: classical musicians, opera singers, comedians, ballet dancers, popular recording artists, songwriters and dramatic actors.  Sunday nights were incomplete without watching The Ed Sullivan Show.  Television critic, David Hinckley, has been quoted as saying “The Ed Sullivan Show was by any means the last great TV show."

Presenter: Mr. Bruno retired as Director of First Year Programs at LaGuardia Community College (City University of New York).  He holds an MPA from Baruch College and, as an adjunct professor for twenty-five years, taught courses in numerous disciplines including Humanities, Business and Mathematics.  He currently resides in both New Jersey and Arizona.
