Personal Quote:

[on hosting the Academy Awards] Whatever your approach, the world is a rough room. And it's a big room. Not everybody is going to like what you have to say. But when you're up there, look like you want to be there. You're the captain of show business that night. That's your job. See more »


He has two daughters with his wife, Janice: Jennifer Crystal Foley and Lindsay Crystal. See more »


His act often has imitations of people from the 1930s-40s
