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."
