Dick Cavett recalls his worst show ever: http://nyr.kr/1mz3eEa
“I had no idea how long it was gonna go on, whether it was ever gonna stop. If they were ever gonna snap out of it. Most people felt sorry for me, which kind of embarrasses me, because I remember sitting there thinking, I don’t want to come off as the victim of this. The sad thing, Elon, is I could see the faces in the audience. And they were delighted, at first, and then the smiles disappeared. And then they looked just sort of grim and horrified and disapproving.”
