Script from The Beautiful Phyllis Diller Show

Description
This leather-bound script is from the first episode of Phyllis Diller’s television show The Beautiful Phyllis Diller Show which was taped on July 16, 1968 and aired on September 15, 1968. The Beautiful Phyllis Diller Show aired on Sunday nights on NBC from September to December 1968. The show was a variety show where Diller participated in everything from the opening monologue to comedy sketches to musical numbers. Guests on the show included Ray Charles, Sonny & Cher, and Zsa Zsa Gabor, among others. In a similar fashion to Diller’s first show, The Pruitts of Southampton, Diller was unhappy with how the show was run as well as with her place in the operations, and it never managed to find success.
