Jackie Mason “Communication Skills” on The Ed Sullivan Show

I believe this was Jackie’s last appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show (Sept. 18, 1966). Looked like he knew it would be as he gave Ed the business about the gestures and ended with the impression. Jackie had said it hurt his career when he was banned (for 2 years), but he was still on variety shows throughout the 60’s like Dean Martin’s Show and The Smothers Brothers.

Baltimore Orioles to Host Food Distribution at Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota

(Sarasota, FL) The Baltimore Orioles announced today that they have partnered with All Faiths Food Bank to host a series of mass food distribution events at Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota, FL. The events will take place on the second Saturday of each month from September through December, with the first event being held on September 12. Future events will be held on October 10, November 14, and December 12.

Each distribution event will take place in the East Lot and is first-come, first-served, beginning at 9 a.m. and continuing until food runs out or 11:30 a.m. All the events will be staffed by All Faiths Food Bank volunteers and staff, and several of the events will also be staffed by Orange & Black Gives Back, the Orioles employee volunteer program.

“Many of our neighbors in the Sarasota and DeSoto counties are continuing to experience food insecurity as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,” said Jennifer Grondahl, Orioles Senior Vice President, Community Development and Communications. “It is our hope that, in partnering with All Faiths Food Bank, we will be able to provide relief and stability to those families who are most in need.”

All Faiths Food Bank has taken special measures to remove barriers to assistance: no pre-registration is required. Physical distancing and no-touch strategies will be observed, as food will be distributed via drive-thru and placed directly into the trunks of cars. Attendees will also receive information about additional Food Bank locations where groceries are available.

All Faiths Food Bank is the only food bank and the largest hunger relief organization in Sarasota and DeSoto counties.

Another early career appearance by Rodney Dangerfield on the Ed Sullivan Show from Sept. 17, 1967. Interestingly, he doesn’t do any “No respect” jokes in this routine.
