BTWF: Michael Keaton doing standup

Before Michael Keaton was the Dark Knight protecting Gotham City in Batman, he was doing standup at the Gotham City Comedy Club. How funny was the actor in his early 30’s back in the early ’80s?

Before Michael Keaton was scaring kids as Beetlejuice, he was entertaining them on Mister Rogers. Just like Batman, he has not aged a day since he was 23 in that 1975 episode.

I love that his before they were famous was a Jeopardy answer and they got it.

Before Michael Keaton was Mr Mom, he was on Mister Rogers Neighborhood. Doesn’t it bring a huge smile to your face to see the 23 year old on the feel good Children’s show back in 1975?


BTWF roles: David Letterman and Michael Keaton on Mary
April 30th, 2015 under Before They Were Famous, David Letterman, Michael Keaton. [ Comments: none ]

I try my hardest to never repeat myself with the Before They Were Famous posts, but in the case I have to. That’s because Michael Keaton talked about his experience working on Mary Tyler Moore’s Variety Show with David Letterman during his last appearance on The Late Show. The two established men spent several minutes talking about how horrible it was, and then they finally showed the clip from the short lived 1978 variety show that also included Swoozie Kurtz. After you watch the clip, you will see why it was short lived.

BTWF roles: Michael Keaton, David Letterman & Swoosie Kurtz on Mary!

With a little luck sometime I come across a really phenomenal Before They Were Famous, tonight there was a lot of luck on my side because I hit the trifecta. Here is a 27 year old Michael Keaton, a 31 year old David Letterman and a 34 year old Swoosie Kurtz singing and dancing on Mary Tyler Moore’s variety show Mary back in 1978.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t stop watching one of the greatest moments on television that barely anyone has ever seen!
I really hope and pray that David Letterman recreates this moment on The Late Show before he retires. What a fantastic dream that would be!
