The Greatest Thing That Phil Oppenheim Has Ever Seen

Had a nice long lunch with Phil Oppenheim today, over at Manuel's Tavern. We talked about many things dear to our hearts - Don Rickles, for example. Then Phil told me about "the greatest thing [he has] ever seen." It seems that a couple of years ago he witnessed a panel discussion. Sounds dry, I suppose! But wait until you hear who was on the panel: Norm Crosby, George Carlin, Phyllis Diller, Shelley Berman, Shecky Greene, and Jerry Lewis! When Phil got back to the office he emailed me a "link" that corroborated his memories of the greatest thing he has ever seen, because it really just seems too good to be true, so wonderful in fact that Phil could not trust his own memory.
