Who were Charlie Brill and Mitzi McCall?
You don’t remember Charlie Brill and Mitzi McCall? No? That’s OK. Neither do the majority of the 73 million people who watched the Ed Sullivan show the evening when the Beatles first appeared. Brill & McCall were the unfortunate act who had to follow the earth-shattering, industry-changing Beatles performance. The married sketch comedy duo pretty much bombed – their audience was rather distracted – and they later said they thought it ruined their career.
