Game show host and comedian Marc Summers is now 71. Burt Reynolds died on 9.6.18 at the age of 82. They collided on Jay Leno‘s Tonight Show on 10.17.94, or nearly 30 years ago. Summers was 43, Reynolds was 58. I’d never seen this video clip before today.

Summers wiki quote: “Reynolds was going through a bad divorce with Loni Anderson. This was not planned, it was all real. Jay called me afterward and asked, ‘What’s going on between you and Burt?’ It was like survival of the fittest. I was a comic. You wait your entire life to get on the Tonight Show, and I wasn’t going to let this guy fuck it up for me.”
