At the height of his fame, Johnny O’Keefe left the ABC for ATN 7 to become host and frequent performer on The Johnny O’Keefe Show. Commercial television broadened his appeal even further and the show was a big hit. In this clip from the first episode, improved production values and Johnny O’Keefe’s increasing confidence as a TV performer are obvious as he begins the show singing 'I Feel Comfort in My Heart'.
