Only 12 entertainers have won the EGOT sweep—Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony. In this hour of Studio 360, we look back at some of our favorite stories about EGOT winners. Composers Robert Lopez and Marvin Hamlisch both perform in our studio. We talk about Mel Brooks’ classic comedy skit “The 2,000-Year-Old Man” and about finding inspiration in Whoopi Goldberg’s stand-up.
