Introduction Why “A Pair of Brown Shoes”? George Gobel was a frequent guest of the Tonight Show. One night Bob Hope and Dean Martin were already on and, if not drinking, gave that impression. After George was introduced and talking to Johnny, he had the audience laughing away as he told stories. The audience was also laughing as Dean Martin was shaking his cigarette ashes (unknown to George) in George's drink. At that point, George, realizing something was going on, but not sure what, said to Johnny "Did you ever feel life was a tuxedo and you were a pair of brown shoes?" Carson broke up, as did Hope and Martin. George handled this situation with such style and grace that not only did he win over those more popular than He; he gained favor from the audience. He may have referred to himself as a pair of brown shoes, but the man was definitely a tuxedo. I have always fondly remembered this line. I pray to have the grace of a pair of brown shoes!
