How big was comedian Shecky Green in his heyday? When Elvis first went to Las Vegas, he opened FOR Shecky. He was a headliner there for more than 30 years, becoming one of the highest paid comedians ever. His name is now synonymous with great comedy.

Shecky says he never set out to be a comedian -- in fact, he still doesn't know what he wants to do when he grows up!

He explains how the racetrack played a key role in his life and how it affected where he has worked throughout his career.

Plus, Shecky shares stories about Elvis' early days in the business and reveals which legendary performer predicted The King's success. Shecky also tells us his one regret about working with Elvis.

And find out how he feels about being in his 80s, writing comedy today (he's even got some material on the Kardashian sisters and rapper Eminem!) and why marriage is the greatest thing in the world in your later years.
