Episode Description

This is Billy Crystal in depth, from his Long Beach, New York roots to his status as one of our most beloved actors and comedians. The son of a jazz concert promoter, Billy got his first taste of showbiz early watching stars such as the yet-to-be-famous Billie Holiday (who doubled as his babysitter) and performing: he tap danced between acts. His comedy career began on the New York comedy club circuit, jumped to the small-screen in the cult hit Soap, hit Las Vegas with a sold-out stand-up show, and continued on Saturday Night Live (a gig he almost didn't get) and finally a series of memorable films.
