Unbelievable Facts About The Ed Sullivan Show

12. Not Your Typical Host

While most TV hosts are confident and charming by nature, Ed Sullivan was the exact opposite. He was awkward, kind of scheming, and notorious for clumsy introductions and monologs throughout the program on several occasions. Although it was this type of rawness and free style hosting that made Ed Sullivan so entertaining.

His awkwardness made him endearing to the audiences. There was just something unique about an awkward host, and instead of looking way, people just couldn’t resist this charm. Off camera, Sullivan was a brilliant tracker and arranger of talent. A variety show always has variety, but nothing was as diverse as the mishmash that Sullivan put together, from puppet shows to opera, the show had it all. Who could resist that?
