WOR Show

Show Description
Shep starts the show singing "I'm Popeye the Sailor Man" slow and low. Standing on stage in front of 2,000 people with his fly open. Walking along 6th avenue Shep hears a blood curdling scream. Looking around he sees it's coming from a dentist's office. There are two kinds of people that go to the dentist - the dentist haters and the people who just go. Shep talks about being a kid and getting the school medical exams. The time Helen Weathers threw up all over the nurse when the tongue depressor was used. Shep get a note to take home saying he has two cavities. His mother hauls him off on Saturday to the dentist. While they're sitting in the dentist office, a scream comes from the inner office and a grown man runs out only to be hauled back inside by the dentist.
Shep makes mention of the time he collected teeth in a ball jar
