Frasier's Famous Callers

The show Frasier was one of those rarities, a successful spin-off of another successful television show. Apparently many of the people who called in to Frasier's radio program on the show were actually celebrities doing cameos. Here, Honsco (on YouTube) puts together a compilation of many of those callers.

Some (not all) of the other celebrity callers were Joe Mantegna, Jeff Daniels, Bruno Kirby, JoBeth Williams, Carl Reiner, Jay Leno, Mel Brooks, Rosemary Clooney, Henry Mancini, Reba McEntire, Steve Lawrence, Eydie Gormé, Garry Trudeau, Jane Pauley, Mary Tyler Moore, James Spader, Lily Tomlin, Sandra Dee, Rosie Perez, Carly Simon, Mary Steenburgen, Shelley Duvall, Tom Hulce, Terri Garr, Laura Dern, Joan Allen, Eric Idle, Patty Duke, Rob Reiner, Jill Clayburgh, Marlo Thomas, Phil Donahue, Yo-Yo Ma, Bonnie Raitt, Gloria Estefan, Stephen King, Wolfgang Puck, Neil Simon, Melissa Etheridge, Bernadette Peters, Allison Janney, Pat Boone, Andy Garcia, Freddie Prinze Jr., Naomi Judd, Rufus Wainwright, Keith Carradine, Olympia Dukakis, Kieran Culkin, Beverly D'Angelo, Linda Hamilton, Judith Ivey, Patti Lupone, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and Scott Hamilton. Quite a collection!

I never realized there were celebrity callers on Frasier. Darn! Makes me want to watch all those shows again for just the calls - but your clip did in a pinch! Of course, now I want to hear the REST of those celebs, but it isn't happening today!
Have a great day!

Laney4, I felt the same way (I wanted to hunt down old episodes and see if I could guess who the callers were). Alas, no time for that. Maybe later...
