75h: Candice Bergen / Martha Reeves, The Stylistics

Candice Bergen's Monologue

.....Candice Bergen

Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen -- Candice Bergen!

Candice Bergen: Thank you very much. Um -- I don't have a snappy monologue tonight, I don't have any sassy repartee, because, in fact, doing this show is my Christmas present to myself. I hosted it last month, and it was one of the nicest experiences I've ever had in my life. Uh -- so I would like to thank our producer, Lorne Michaels for giving me such a swell Christmas -- [ the audience erupts into applause ] and for creating a show that is so special, with such special people. Um -- and speaking of special people, I can't think of a better way to start the show than with Martha Reeves, not to mention Howard Shore and his Band of Angels.
