Some people are blessed with two incredible talents ... Bo Jackson, Jim Nabors, L. Ron Hubbard ... Johnny Bench was not only the greatest catcher of all time, but is one of the great variety show guests of his era. Here he is on Hee Haw in the 1970s. Hee Haw, for our younger readers, was the Walking Dead of its day, except it didn't have zombies, and there was singing.
And here's his appearance on the short-lived Nick & Jessica Variety Hour, thirty years later. It's hard to believe in a television landscape littered with garbage like Breaking Bad and Louie that there's no room for a show like The Nick & Jessica Variety Hour. You know, something with integrity.
