Candice Bergen’s Monologue
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.
