Dick Cavett doesn't have much sympathy for today's coddled late-night talk-show hosts, who need teams of writers to be funny. At Julian Schnabel's show at the Sperone Westwater Gallery, Cavett told Webster Hall's Baird Jones, "Back in the day, we had real men who could do five 90-minute shows a week. I realized the other day that no one has done that in a very long time. It was like getting hit by one wave and getting up on your knees and then getting hit by another, which knocks you down. At one point, a car picked me up in Central Park, and I saw there were leaves and I asked the driver, 'Are these new leaves or old leaves, did I miss the summer?' It was the strangest sensation . . . That can't be good for you."
