Gabe Kaplan Does Stand Up on the Midnight Special


You might be familiar with Gabe Kaplan from his work on Welcome Back, Kotter, but did you know before that he was a stand-up comedian? Kaplan hones his craft throughout the 1960s and by the 1970s he was at the top of his game. In fact, it is from his comedy that a lot of what would become that memorable sitcom would be pulled. Here is Gabe, appearing on the Midnight Special in 1976.
