6' (1.83 m)
Did You Know?
[on the death of father-in-law Danny Thomas
in 1991] He hit the long ball for such a long time. He would hold an audience for an unprecedented length of time in the imagery of the story he was telling, and suddenly would come the punch line, and the ceiling would crack with laughter. He wove an illusion on the stage with no props, all by himself.
Release of the book, "That Girl and Phil: An Insider Tells What Life is Really Like in the Marlo Thomas/Phil Donahue Household" by Desmond Atholl and Michael Cherkinian.
His deep smooth authorize voice.
