The Colgate Comedy Hour
was a comedy variety series that ran on NBC-TV
from September 1950 to December 1955, Sundays at 8:00 p.m. For the first 
year the show was broadcast from New York. Stars of the show were mostly
veterans of vaudeville, Broadway, radio, or movies, who took turns hosting,
in four or five week cycles. In the first few seasons, those most frequently
seen were Eddie Cantor (above), who was the first host, Dean Martin and
Jerry Lewis, Bob Hope, Fred Allen, Abbott & Costello, Donald O’Connor,
and Jimmy Durante. The Colgate Comedy Hour was truly one of the
bright spots of early television.
