He was a recording artist as well with the album The Yama Yama Man in 1967, playing ragtime Dixieland Jazz, with his ever present banjo. While filming Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf opposite Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, he received an unexpected invitation from The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. They were expecting to get an insight into the film from Segal and surprisingly was regaled with anecdotes and Dixieland Jazz banjo which furthered Segal's career into comedy.
