"The his right hand man would have never happened right when we don't have to go there but your dad did. Yeah well. he was at a point. Where the thing at columbia they try to know. This happened to everyone barbara strike and it was like. Oh you got to seeing the bills carrying sang barbra streisand. They tried to get barber to sing. Bob dylan i in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine. She's listening to dylan blowing in the wind. This wing in both wins. The answer is below weighing in the win. You know brilliant idea. That's a great one must go again barbara. So anyways so tony. Actually you know worked with climbing and he did an album. That was kind of like that thing and he got physically sick. He said he was regurgitating between takes and so well. That's a great story that that he tells about. Clive davis right where killington went in. And said you know. He thought he was going to get a raise and clive davis said. Well i have some bad news for you. He goes What is it and clive zig. Well we're going to have to try to you from the label. Ellington goes well. Why says william not selling enough records and ellington goes. Oh i guess. I had it missed. I was mistaken. I thought i was supposed to make the records in. You're supposed to sell them. It's a great. Yeah that's my edict. Like and i've heard that story that's every artists but that that was my son said to me. Why do i hate making movies. And i said and i said you really hate making movies. I said well maybe hate stronger. I said i'm very uncomfortable. They say why 'cause you just feel the hand of commerce at your throat every day were chevy. It's never free and rarely fun. It can be challenging but you just feel like every dime is busy counted so they wanted your dad to do what he couldn't do. Yeah and he rebels against that just kind of like they gave him a big contract then he was like no. I don't do this. I wanna start label now now. This is at a time when people weren't doing that. I mean you know. I mean did it with more often. But it was done more on a warner brothers thing And he found Jack rollins Woody allen's manager in you know number of other people to work with them on a on. A label called improv. This is where he made the bill evans records in voice and piano. Those records being made at the time and so he came to me and talk to me about the label. And i said well. That's a great idea and you know it's risky. And he said well. What's risky about. And i said well. It doesn't seem like they have major distribution in this day and age independent distributions. Great you can do it. Internet about but then it was a real challenge. I said columbia's offering you to a distribution deal which is a great. You know it's just great. It's kind of like the leave you alone. You can do what you wanna do. He had me go. Talk to the guy was run a company in buffalo. So we'll go talk them now. You know. I got the long hair and a fringe jacket. And i i go to this. You know this. This hotel owner in buffalo. And i'm sitting there and he's thrown about and i start talking about the distributions it's great boom. There's some other things about the contract that i didn't like that i told them about you. Know in terms of him kind of getting roped into it and this guy just rejected that whole notion. So i went back to tony and i just said look i. I wouldn't do this i think. There's you know. So no improv records Well no he did it. And how long did that. Last it lasted like three years. And they failed because of the distribution right so he does improv records. And then because he can't get the records to distribute exactly. So that's what i told him. He remembered that and then the the label folded and then he was without a contract. For how long. Let's see i'd say three years years Well it's tough because a member at the time this is like around seventy eight okay sinatra retired. You didn't see geez our number one and streisand's doing too wet with the bees are saying. Yeah you know what i'm saying. So like there's that he didn't wanna do it and then he was in vegas and in those days you were doing vegas like you know the thirty two week thing and all that type stuff you know. He just called me up one. Dan just like. I don't know i need some help here. I don't know what to do. I don't know where to go manager. He wanted to be able to do his art on his terms and was vegas like for him. What is that like for someone. Because you always figure i remember reading nick. Taj is book dino about the best biographies of ever and they talked about how martin at one point in the sixties i believe was the highest paid entertainer in the world because he had the He touched every base. He stole four bases. He had a television show recording contract he started films and he appeared live in vegas concerts making millions and millions of dollars back and i was wondering for someone like your dad. I'm going to say that i actually. I don't know what vegas exemplify back. Then like for an actor was that like being on a game show or no no so there was. I mean the idea that you know. This is where they cut their teeth. The lounges louis. Prima in the lounge. You had a fred astaire and cary grant going to see sinatra and then go into the lounge and this is where the onus was like i you know and tony makes a good point these people. We didn't have access to these people except the big screen and all sudden. They're they are sitting there watching louis prima rubbing shoulders with with sinatra and jerry. Gran and whatever this was magic and for for again for tony got remember. Tony's ten years younger than all these guys. These are his idelson announcer. Call them the kid and there he is with them. All spread astaire salon a salon so and nobody messed around for the for the obvious reasons. And then you got into this this evolution where you know the sumo corporation and howard hughes took over and like i had negotiate with like howard using these cowboys. It was really interesting. Was that one. Oh so mazing. And this is like telling i i started working and like you know howard uses on the top of the desert end. I know he's up there. And so there was this guy named lenny they'd go in with me to negotiate the contract and let he'd get on his hands and knees f- seriously gonna lead to like get off knees. I'm not going to get on my knees in big for contract. I'm just not gonna do it. You know.

"He was at one club. That was run by a man named Schalke Naples in Ohio. They were like the Naples brothers that struck fear in the hearts of anyone who heard of them and so Howard. was at the microphone doing his act and this guy came running behind him across the stage and running after him was a guy in black and he fired a gun at the guy right behind Howard. So Howard freaked out and he ran and hid in the kitchen and shaky Naples came over and said what the hell are you doing here and Howard? Said there's a guy on stage and he shooting and Naples said is shoot at you. And he said, no, he says, thank you get back out there and finish it and he had to go back out. He said his lips were dry and cracked and his voice was wavering and he had to hold onto the Mike stand but he got through his act. There is a sort of a twisted logic to well, you know if he's not shooting at you, what are you complaining about? So he ended up powered, ended up getting better gigs when he was represented by Jack Rollins who represented woody, Allen Dick Cavite and Mike Nichols and Elaine May and and mort Saul on a lot of just upper-echelon fifties and early sixties comedians. But the as the cliche goes what he really wanted to do was direct. And he was able to hang out on the sets of the money and run and bananas and actually. Helped out on them in various ways and study. How would he did a movie did movies and then? He got his big break when Valerie Harper allowed him to direct a couple episodes of Rhoda and the mid Seventies. She knew him because he was an Improv teacher and they sort of moved in the same circles and she was impressed with his stage staging of things. And that led to him being really sought after director he directed the first three seasons of Mork and Mindy every episode. So he's got a lot of stories about. About Robin Williams and how Pam Dubber doesn't get the credit she deserves and comparing and contrasting the improvisational styles of of Robin Williams with his hero Jonathan winters. And there's just a lot of fascinating show Biz stories. So I..

Bette midler was a waitress. Sure and Andy Coffman was probably there that maybe a little before him They still had a cabaret sort of feel right at that time. Were there. Singers waitresses would get up. And I don't know if Andy I. I think it was before where Andy Kaufman in. L. A. Improv. It's amazing how much you've seen so you. You sort of a influence Robert Klein a little bit to do stand up. And it's second city now for before you went to second city you're primarily working from scripted material and now you know you sort of known as as one of the great improvisers. Yeah. Where did that happen well? It's second city. Everyone's provides so then I got a call. They were putting together a comedy group. And I was in an off Broadway play now in the village a little murders which was directed by Alan Arkin. So you worked with him. I worked with him as a director. He was such a great director. He'd sit there he's very noncommittal looked at the stuff he said. This is a great show. He's I don't care what the fuck fuck the critics. It's great show and about three weeks and we're here's what he's I don't know what to do. We're we're ready to open. Yeah someone had to leave to go go. We're all ready.

He's how dare Mike Nichols give you a direction? I the director. You're doing just right so I'd as a boy does he have gone so anyway. I got into Buco. They were getting together down at the bitter end. Yeah call the ACE trucking company. Yeah that'd be fun. We're GONNA do sketches after the show at midnight. I that's great because I'm doing this play right down the street. I still have some sketch ideas from second city. So we get up. We do the sketches that I would. I would come up with the sketches but the guys in the group was so funny they they flesh them out and then we'd improvise and I guess that's how I but then we started getting jobs and the guy who I'm failing with names here Dave Fry. Hey Fry I I. I don't know if I did for Nixon famous for the Nixon Right. His manager came to see us. Yeah we were thrilled. And he took us over it manages. Got Us on the Sullivan show. We didn't even have a name and we will be. How many were there have? You were four guys and a girl. Isn't that amazing that that that was that happened on late night television yet? Because you would never see that. Now that that Ed Sullivan would say. Now here's a group of kids. Yeah they're doing a little thing whatever they were. But we started the whole bunch of Improv. Sketch groups I know funny names. Oh my God. New York's stickball Comey Space Baseball had no idea. Yeah and we did it. We did very well. We did solvent. We got in the Tom Jones show and this went on for several. We do a show. It'd be a like forty minutes. Is that material had opened up for Improv. We'd ask for for we find the best thing. What are your pet peeves and people have? My pet peeves are songs. We do a little improv about it and it was a fail safe thing. Because if the Improv wasn't going well one of the guys put on a little Tiara. And he had a one and he walked out he said. I'm the bad improv. Ferry and I claim this Improv is over and get a huge laugh and then we close with a set piece and the next thing. I know I was being asked. Did a lot of things in got a call from Christopher guest wants to come down in my my manage. You've got to go down right away. I want some you know what he wants to put you in a movie. What's there well now. He wants to see today so I know Chris I knew who he was. I'd been in spinal tap with Christopher guest but what happened to Fernwood tonight in that period that was late semi so must have come later. Yeah the fernwood tonight and I mean like mall skipped six years there. Yeah but that's a prison years because that's sort of set a new standard for television. Calm down because I evade memories of that because I was about thirteen or fourteen and it was on late right. Yes it was syndicated Suzanne. Eleven o'clock here. Seven o'clock somewhere else and I was still a kid but I just remembered that. There was this buzz around something different that something different was happening. It was what was the key. The premise of it. It was if you remember local talk show. Local radio in a little town called Fernwood was the home of Mary Hartman Mary Hartman and that became a spin off caress. Someone said wouldn't be funny. They had a cable. Tv show in this town. What would it be like now? Three or four people have talked to me and said it was their idea. I don't know whose idea it was. But they called me to come in and do it and they were the sidekick sidekick who's a WHO's a hilarious guy. Oh my God. I didn't know him but I'd gone to see him in a club and I said boy. This guy is very sharp. Didn't take easy. Didn't make easy reference. Yeah Yeah and they said you'll be this. You'll be the ED McMahon I said why do I WANNA BE? That'd be clearly did you and I went in. I said I can start naming people that will do better than there's no no. Everyone says you're be right. Look if you don't WanNa do it. Just come in for a week during the rehearsals and warm up rehearsals till we get someone else. I said. Okay so in so I sat in and it was. We laugh so hard and it was so funny the How did you develop that character like when now because with fernwood tonight? I mean at some point like this always fascinates me with with the Improv actors. And guys who do who do character work is that there is some you. I don't know if I've been able to get anyone to really define it but there's some thing you do that you know is funny that there's a the I mean. I guess it's just something happens from but when you improvise you've just got this. This tone like I think in Fernwood tonight be Kinda played it a little like dumber than you Yeah I play a clueless kind of a coolest guy who has no. It's like almost like the what me worry Guy Right which I love to do because I'm just the opposite. I worry about everything right. Things got what happened like today. I just had such a day.

But the guy with a little marijuana marijuana's legal or it seems to be legal. It's not legal ranking by some down the street you know that was never. You're always arresting someone for marijuana.

M. S. N. messenger and I. E. C. Q. to chat to their friends and thought it was super cool when you could download music or watch movie trailers that you could only see in the theater before the movie started on the internet sometimes we really miss those days when the internet wasn't so vast scary and at times very stupid and dangerous speaking of stupid dangerous we've got some of the worst internet challenges to ever exist these are all real so if you remember some of these stunts in internet challenges that people would do three one two nine eight one seven two under three one two nine eight one seven two hundred how about this one the incredibly stupid and dangerous tide pods challenge this was already mentioned earlier if this wasn't one of the saddest and disturbing ways for humanity to kick off two thousand eighteen we're not sure what is seriously if we never hear the words tied pod again in our lives even no relationship even though we're doing don't even know when we're doing laundry it would be too soon even after the challenger rubbed it all over the internet and the news and the American Association of poison control centers released a warning about the dangers of consuming the pods it seems that there are still many reports of teens intentionally eating laundry detergent fill gel capsules this year quote unquote we're not sure we'll ever understand the appeal challenging yourself to deliberately put something filled with chemicals that could potentially poison your body for all to see but we're kind of hoping the next stupid challenge would hurry up and make its appearance because this one got old super fast yeah I mean I you know when I first heard about that it was it was widespread it wasn't like a small portion of of kids were doing this a lot of people were doing it not to the point where well who's who's there was a guy the other football player who was who is the spokesperson for the tide pods he had to make a statement right Gronk grok yeah he was the guy he was doing he did the tide pod commercials yeah and he had to come out and say don't eat it now yeah you know what I want a big dumb football player you know is smarter about not eating Thai pods and you are then you need to you need to set to listen up but he had to make a statement yeah remind the kids hate the only tells me it's good for your laundry it'll get your clothes fresh and clean but don't eat it you have to take so the tide pods challenge that's that's probably near the top of the dumbest of all these challenges I know about this Smokey the bear I would say no to the fire challenge it isn't just Smokey bear I know Smokey the bear you sure I believe so I mean I everybody says Smokey the bear but I think it's Smokey bear I think it's a do you know what you're right it is just Smokey bear yeah people have added via in the middle there but his name is Smokey bear I kinda like Smokey the bear if that's what everybody says but I but it but the actual origin is that his his name is Smokey bear first name smoky last name bear Smokey bear but every so Smokey the bear not you know I think it's because there's a song they they had a song for Smokey bear and they had to add a valid to maintain the beat to maintain the rhythm of the song that also that's why it happened yeah that's what I want from Smokey bear to smoke you don't care here's a little fact this is coming to us from Smokey bear dot com okay Okey website in nineteen fifty two Steve Nelson and Jack Rollins wrote the popular anthem that would launch a continuous debate about Smokey's name to maintain the rhythm of the song they added the love between Smokey and bear due to the song's popularity Smokey bear has been called Smokey the bear by many adoring fans but in actuality his name has never changed he is still just Smokey bear what's the song what's the lead so Steve Nelson Jack Rollins I don't remember I mean this is fifth nineteen fifty two so it was you know you know like thirteen years before I was born but I mean I'm sure I probably heard and I just forgot about it well.

The Life of Mike Nichols
"Ask Carter and Sam Kashmir join us now they wrote together an oral history of Mike Nichols it's called life isn't everything. Mike Nichols as remembered by one hundred and fifty of his closest friends Sam Ash. Thanks for being here. Just thanks for having US thank you. What was was the genesis of this project? Well after Mike's Death I was at Vanity Fair and wanted to do an oral history as much as we can get away with the magazine and ask had worked as a PA.. With Mike. And I knew him mm somewhat and so I thought it best to join forces and so we did this for the magazine originally and it was so interesting and there was so much material that it just kind of presented itself as a book kind of instantly. As soon as we saw together in the magazine they must have been painful to have to cut. Had it down to magazine size well. The piece was originally assigned at six thousand. Words ran at eleven thousand and still not a word practically about his theater career hear about his time at the compass. Players is a founding member of Improv. I mean there's so much still on the table Ash you're very lucky person having worked as the PA.. What did you work on? I worked on Charlie Wilson's war. That was my first job out of college. I was so upset on hangs Julia Roberts. What was that often? Yes Oh right. Of course. It was a big movie so very often. You felt very distant from where the the real real action was taking place but still. I really feel blessed who've been able to be as close as I was. So you mentioned Charlie. Wilson's war my immediate reaction. Shen is Oh my God. That's Mike Nichols. Also the thing that I think people don't even fully appreciate now is just how incredibly accomplished. He was and for so long so if we could just kind of begin with his I think I real fame fame was with Nichols and may but before we go into each of those stop. Just take us through because I think people may be associated him with the graduate and a couple of other major projects. But let's just list some some of them so people have a sense. Well there was the great success of the Nichols. and May Elaine. May and Mike Nichols as a comedy team. which kind of transformed formed Comedy really and Mike as Director. He and Neil Simon joined forces and he really kind of in a way. Reinvented invented Simon. For Neil Simon. You know with barefoot in the park and the odd couple and as of film director his first film was the Richard Richard Burton Elizabeth Taylor. Who's afraid of Virginia? Woolf which frank rich other people believed to be the maybe the best reputation of a of a stage play for film ever the graduate which was second film his second film shocking. JFK transformative you know and Oscar worthy. And then there's all all the stage work Tom Stoppard's the real thing David Raves hurly-burly streamers. Yeah camelot and S- Pamela camelot idle. I mean it's kind of prodian extraordinary range of of gifts that that he I mean. He Directs Spam Lot. I I think two years after doing angels in America for HBO. I mean that's range. I don't WanNa go too much into his early life by. I think it's important to point out that this was a person who arrived here. Didn't speak English. Not as first language goes to the University of Chicago right he meets Elaine. May let's start there. What was it that made that pairing so extraordinary? What did they do? You said that they revolutionized comedy Elaine may was the dangerous genius that entered Mike Nichols life and and changed him she was kind of a combustion engine and he was the steering wheel a little bit. Steve Martin told us the first time. When you listen to those records those bits or you know the sketches? which is he said that the that I heard irony brock kind of modernity to comics situations and things that comedians did not go? Nya such as the cost of funerals was is the time of Jessica Mitford the the American way of death. And you know I mean these are weighty subjects adultery a- adultery right the previous generation of comics from the fifties where people who came from Vaudeville and the Borscht Belt Nichols and may had a theater background around. And you know both the classical repertory but also as Improv actors and by the way they're also both at analysis and brought a level of psychological acuity to comedy that really hasn't been seen before let's just a clip of them from that period some day Arthur. You'll get married and you'll have suit of your own and honey when you do. I only pray that they make us suffer the way you. That's all I pray to mothers. Okay mom thanks for calling you very sarcastic. I'm doing my best now. You call me on on the telephone I me. I'm sorry I'm sorry that bothered you and look I didn't make you feel bad. Are you kidding I feel awful. Oh honey if I could believe that I'd be the happiest mother it's true. What do you think I feel crummy Arthur honey? Why don't you call me sweetheart? That's the one bit. That's kind of in a way close to auto biography at least for Mike that was sort of his mother in a way and and he had a difficult very difficult relationship with her. Are you know after the death of his physician. Father they were really plunged into poverty into serious poverty in in New York. He I used to have to go in the olden days to the Museum of TV and radio to watch these old clips. But now I I'm imagining that. You can see all of this on Youtube. Yeah there's a lot of great stuff and Youtube I encourage people to also look up there The award for total mediocrity that they did at the Emmys when you're in the nineteen fifties so that's just breathtaking. I just actually making fun of their own mirror. You know I mean they're making fun of show business with a successful right away. They were both part of this. Very heavy kind of avant-garde guard group called the compensator in Chicago and the two of them just clicked as their manager. Jack rollins later said there. They were like ham and eggs. They were a local will hit first then they came to New York. He signed them up his clients started booking them at local nightclubs and they were hit right away and then they started going non Jackpot and omnibus and they were hit nationally. So yeah it was. It was really just like that. It was that quick. How does it get from that to? Who's afraid of Virginia? Woolf well well they had a great success Nichols and may on Broadway at the Golden Theatre was an evening with Nichols in May ostensibly directed by Arthur Penn.. You know but not really and Elaine was just sort of tired of doing it and in a way was the comedic version of of the Beatles. Breaking up people were just. I just chop fall in. You know it's tragic. Yes yes yeah. It was kind of a loss in a way They would wind up working together. Other eventually you know as a screenwriter and director but but Mike it kind of put him in in the wilderness for a while He was really at see if we rely on a little bit. When he's got that evening on Broadway with a lame the theater? They were in shared an alley with a theater where her camelot was on stage with Richard Burton and they would kind of hang out after after the show and that's how he kind of got to know him and it was. It's essentially through that meeting Richard in that alley and threw him Liz. They were the ones who hired for Virginia Woolf. When you think about the collaborators he had the people he got to work with you mentioned Arthur panel the you know lately Richard Burton Elizabeth Taylor Dustin in Hoffman Jewels pfeiffer on carnal knowledge? It's just you know on and on Meryl Streep the biggest names and your subtitle is is Mike Nichols as remembered by hundred and fifty of his closest friends. Did He. Frequently form friendships during these professional collaborations was. He's one of those the people that everybody felt like they knew. And we're close to make exactly this actors and and many was writers really kind of fell in love with him. I mean we could have called the book seduced by Mike Nichols you know Natalie. Portman really wept recalling. Her work with Mike Sue now. Yeah and that was much later and the closer yes. Yes but also they did stage work together so they were totally devoted to him. I I mean Tom Stoppard. For example said I think his advice memorial you know he thought to himself who is there to to write for he so he was kind of an Avatar to all of these. She's tremendously gifted complicated. People and the friendships were very deep. And Very Real Maureen Dowd. Your colleagues said that he was a null coward figure with the Jersey Kaczynski past and unlike a lot of other people who had a really horrible childhoods he did not kind of wear it on his sleeve and he we've talked about it and didn't particularly want to spend a lot of time thinking about it and I I mean I think this is kind of the key to his career. Longevity Eddie is that he was. Somebody really always wanted to be living in the moment. And kind of looking forward to the next project even up until the end of his life when he had several things that were in progress including masterclass terrence. McNally's play that he was gonNA adapt for. HBO With Meryl Streep. Yeah I mean in a way. Our title is taken from a a model of Mike's life isn't everything but it's kind of a misnomer because it was everything to him. You know in a way I mean he could be difficult to and and some of the people in the booker occur quite open about yes. That Emma Thompson is one right exactly Thompson who who adored him. You know said we're not talking about some saint here so you know and in fact Mike toward the end of his life felt that he had been cruel to people and had betrayed others. You know but he did develop a music also about someone who sort of as much of a genius as he was you know he was also complicated difficult cat and felt like there were people to apologize to. Some people presumably wouldn't talk to you Elaine. May of course wouldn't what about Diane Sawyer and were there other people who you pursued and just said you know what no now. We did approach. Diane we wouldn't have done this actually without her been addiction you know and she gave us the same response that initially initially Sam Beckett gave to digital bear you know which is. I'm not going to stop you but I'm also not going to help you all that much. But when push came to shove and we needed the people such as Meryl Streep she was helpful behind the scenes and Elaine. She did. Give us a blurb. Although we didn't use it and the blurb facetiously officiously said well I I would tell you all I know. But they're going to pay me millions of dollars to write my memoirs something. You'll never do you know. She meant it as kind of a joke before before we go one final question what do you each of you. Thank was Nicholas's greatest work and then also so perhaps a personal favourite may be less known or just something new especially leaden. And why. Let's start with you ash. I would say probably the graduate. It's not the most original choice but I just have seen the movie so many times and I think that it it just has held up so much better than a lot of other youth movies of the time that it was sort of lumped in with that plus the the comedy albums is sort of where my original enthusiasm for him started. But you know I I think catch twenty. Two for example is a movie that has not really gotten. It's do. I think it's actually kind of a brilliant movie that was overshadowed by Mash at the time though it is I see no reason why the existence of Mash prevent people from enjoying it today not an easy novel to adapt to know and but I think him and Buck Henry and we did a credible job adapting it. Sam will I mean. It's so hard to choose. My mother would choose working girl in or Silkwood you know an but are you. Seeing your mother would be wrong. My mother never wrong But for me it's you know the stage work is kind and of extraordinary. I mean the Philip Seymour. Hoffman death of a salesman at the end of life using that was really just is an extraordinary unearth accomplishment. Really it brought him Full Circle Because that streetcar with the two original productions that changed his life really all right. I'm hoping that this interview. If nothing else forces everyone to go to youtube everyone to go and stream every single thing that Mike Nichols did that was available. He was such an incredible credible talent ash. Carter Sam cash. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you so much thank your new book is called. Life isn't everything. Mike Nichols as remembered by one hundred
