Near the end of a Jackie Mason comedy routine on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, Sullivan gave the comedian a “wrap it up” gesture from off-camera. Mason waved it off; Sullivan mistakenly thought Mason’s wave was obscene … and that the viewers had seen it. Sullivan exploded backstage and canceled Mason’s six upcoming appearances. Mason filed a lawsuit, which was later dropped, and Sullivan invited Mason back to the show in 1966, and publicly apologized.
