Lance's Journal: Dick Cavett Returns to Nebraska, Feb. 20, 2017

There's a list of famous celebrities from Nebraska and among them is the one and only Dick Cavett.

This past weekend, Dick was in Lincoln sharing the Lied Center stage with Paula Poundstone.

And while he was in town, our Lance Schwartz got the chance to sit down with this legendary entertainer.

What we know for sure is that Richard Alva Cavett was born in November of 1936.

But even Dick himself doesn't know if it was in Gibbon, Kearney or Hastings that he was born in.

The one thing we do know for certain is that Dick Cavett has enjoyed a magical 50-year career in showbiz and it all got started in Nebraska .
