Legendary Comedian Talks About Career

Dick Cavett sat down with New Day to discuss his new book, "Brief Encounters: Conversations, Magic Moments, and Assorted Hijinks."

He says it came about because somebody pointed out that he had "an appropriate number [of stories published] to get out another book and hustle it and go on people's shows and pretend it's not 'plugola.'"
