Shut That Door – 1972 – 1973
It’s hard to believe that twenty years have passed since Larry Grayson’s death (7th January 1995). Larry Grayson, perhaps doesn’t get the credit he deserves, he was a very funny comic who often gets overlooked. To that extent we’re running a short series of posts in tribute to Larry Grayson.
It was Lew Grade, who after seeing Larry Grayson on various guest spots on ATV shows during the 1970’s gave him his own show in 1972 – Shut That Door. Only two series were made of this show, despite much of the available information dating it 1972 – 1977, we have only found evidence of the two. A follow up series The Larry Grayson Show swiftly followed , but that’s another story.
Shut That Door saw Larry in a mix of his inimitable style of conversational stand up, interviews and song and dance routines.
