: : Having just listened to Don's "Drear Poosen" and Mary's "Chiss Swease" and "Grass Reek" Flubs. I wondered just much of Jack's annoyance expressed as a percentage) was staged, and how much of it was genuine?
: I really don't think Jack was truly upset but rather amused and given his abilities as an adlib genius,added to the spontaneity of the shows.
Plus, don't forget that Jack supplied HIS share of flubs and goofs over the years too!
I think that Jack WOULD get upset if a performer was INTENTIONALLY messing up lines just to get some cheap "blooper" laughs, but from what I've heard and read, this was not the case in the instances which Bob mentioned....Jack's cast members were simply too professional for that kind of nonsense.
