Jack Paar, American American author, radio and television comedian and talk show host, best known for his stint as host of The Tonight Show from 1957 to 1962 (1918-2004) was born Jack Harold Paar in Canton, Ohio. He first worked near home as a radio announcer at WIBM in Jackson, Michigan, and later as a humorous disc jockey at Midwest stations, including WJR in Detroit, WIRE in Indianapolis, WGAR in Cleveland, and WBEN in Buffalo. In his book P.S. Jack Paar, he recalled doing utility duty at WGAR in 1938 when Orson Welles broadcast his famous simulated alien invasion, The War of the Worlds, over the CBS network (and its WGAR affiliate). Attempting to calm possible panicked listeners, Paar announced, "The world is not coming to an end. Trust me. When have I ever lied to you?". Paar was drafted into the military in 1943 during World War II, interrupting his tenure as host of WBEN's morning show The Sun Greeter's Club (he opted not to return to the station at war's end, instead seeking opportunities in network radio and film). He was assigned to the U.S.O. in the South Pacific to entertain the troops. He was a clever, wisecracking master of ceremonies whose impersonations of officers nearly got him into trouble. After World War II, Paar worked in radio as a fill-in on The Breakfast Club show and appeared as a panelist on The $64 Question. He got his big break when Jack Benny, who had been impressed by Paar's U.S.O. performances, suggested that Paar serve as his 1947 summer replacement. Paar got his first tastes of television in the early 1950s, appearing as a comic on The Ed Sullivan Show and hosting two game shows, Up To Paar (1952) and Bank on the Stars (1953), before hosting The Morning Show (1954) on CBS. He guest starred twice in 1958 on Polly Bergen's short-lived NBC comedy/variety show, The Polly Bergen Show. NBC asked Paar to succeed Steve Allen as host of The Tonight Show in July 1957. With Steve Allen's success as the first host of The Tonight Show, NBC gave him his own prime time variety hour in June 1956. At first it was entitled Tonight Starring Jack Paar; after 1959 it was officially known as The Jack Paar Show. Paar often was unpredictable, emotional, and principled. When network censors cut a joke about a "water closet," the British term for a toilet, from the show's February 11, 1960, broadcast tape before airtime without notifying, he received national attention walking off the program the following evening in protest . He did not return until three weeks later, after the network apologized and he was allowed to tell the joke. Time magazine's obituary of him noted that: "His fans would remember him as the fellow who split talk show history into two eras: Before Paar and Below Paar.".
