6Between appearing on bit parts on TV shows, Brooks got odd jobs delivering phone books or picking up packages at the post office at Christmas.
7Perry Como saw Brooks perform his drunk act at a celebrity golf tournament and asked him to be his opening act at the opening of the new Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas. When hotel management balked at having the unknown Brooks open for Como, the singer told them if Brooks didn't appear neither would he. The Hilton engagement opened the doors for Brooks, who made his national debut on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962).
