The singer in the video might've been a bit older than Clark would've been at that time, though.
Thanks for helping out (which is more info than we're getting from the original poster).
Yeah, I'm familiar with Boone's Chevy-Showroom shows that were earlier, but it seems
that Woody Allen appeared on it once, with no sign of Robinson being on it. Allen was
writing mostly for Sid Caesar at that time and he did write a Chevy show for Caesar -
and was even nominated for an Emmy for it.

Dee Clark seems like a pretty good guess (much better than the "all black men look the same" kind of recent guesses),
but I checked online and apparently Dee only did American Bandstand and The Dick Clark Show during this time,
so that's what I'm seeing.

To the original poster: all we're getting here from you is "no, that's not it" -
no mention of any part that you've actually played in this. No mention of
any kind of what you're doing or have done - whether it's just curiosity or does
it have something to do with a certain project - what kind of research have you done -
something that maybe we didn't think of here, etc. In other words, some kind of
helpful feedback outside of "Duh, that's not ______. It doesn't look like him."
Yeah, I'm doing it because I'm always curious to expand my knowledge of things -
especially in the arts, but it's not so much the idea of you accepting my impressions,
it's that there seems to be no constructive feedback or any kind of give-and-take to this search.
That's why I'm tired of playing your reindeer games.

Chill out a bit, man. It's not that big of a deal.

Like now, I was laying on the sofa with the cat when I wrote that,
so if I were any more chill, I’d be like a pre-firmed jello mold in the
fridge oozing all over the place.

Well, I don't really know what you want me to say when you suggest someone who clearly does not look like the person with Sugar Ray Robinson.

You've either been able to identify the man or you haven't.

What feedback can I give you?

How about 'Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your response. I really appreciate your efforts so very, very much because I can see you've tried really hard here but the guy you've suggested looks nothing like the guy with Sugar Ray Robinson.'

Would that help?

Upon closer inspection, I'm really starting to think it's Alf.
